Even though we’re still at the beginning of November, before we know it, the calendar will read December. Naturally many outlets will start debating what will be awarded Game of the Year, but The Game Awards will be kicking off the discussion once again in Los Angeles.

Live from the Microsoft Theater at L.A. Live, The Game Awards will be honoring this year’s games, makers, and personalities on Thursday, December 6th. Thanks to a tweet from today, it seems that we’ll see even more announcements for the future.

Last year, we saw 17 announcements drop during the event. Everything from first looks to the announcement of release dates was on center stage. Notably, for Nintendo fans, we were treated to the announcement of Bayonetta 1 & 2 being ported to Nintendo Switch, confirmation that Bayonetta 3 was in the works, and once the awards show was over we could explore Hyrule again with the release of The Champions’ Ballad DLC.

What will Nintendo bring to the event this year? Metroid Prime 4 hasn’t been touched on since E3 2017 and Super Smash Bros. Ultimate comes out the following day, on December 7th. No matter what, Nintendo seems to have a fantastic track record with bringing down the house due to sheer fanboy and girl glee when Reggie stops by the show.

The Game Awards can be watched live via YouTube, Twitch, and other streaming platforms. Want to attend the event? Tickets are still available online for purchase.
