The awards ceremony for Gamescom 2022 has officially taken place, and all of this year’s winners have been announced. While this wasn’t a Nintendo focused event by any means, a few upcoming Switch games did get some love. Here are all the Switch games that took home awards this year:

  • Best Family Game: Paper Trail - Newfangled Games
  • Best Indie Game: Inkulinati - Yaza Games
  • Most Original Game: Inkulinati - Yaza Games
  • Best Sports Game: AEW: Fight Forever - THQ Nordic
  • Most Wanted Nintendo Switch Game: Tin Hearts - Rogue Sun
  • Best Trailer: Hogwarts Legacy - Avalanche Software

While all of these titles have been confirmed for release on Switch, none of them are widely available just yet, so you’ll have to jot these names down in order to remember them when they’re released in the coming months. The ink-based strategy game Inkulinati in particular seems worth checking out for its impressive two awards won.

What's up with those "winners"? Did they pay for those awards? On what planet is Tin Hearts - Rogue Sun the most anticipated Switch game?

Yeah, than one especially baffles me too.
