Nintendo didn't just reveal The Champions' Ballad at The Game Awards.

Winners in most of the show's categories were decided through a vote split 90/10 between The Game Awards' jury and TGA website visitors.

The Game Awards show fulfilled its dual role as a celebratory and a promotional event by debuting trailers for a selection of titles. Players who purchase the game in stores at a suggested retail price of $59.99 will receive a free download code for the original Bayonetta game.

In addition, Nintendo announced the next DLC for The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, "The Champions" Ballad will be release for Nintendo Switch and Wii later this evening.The Champions' Ballad is part of Breath of the Wild's Expansion Pass, which costs $19.99 in the Nintendo eShop. The content pack also brings a powerful new way to travel: the Master Cycle Zero, a high-tech motorcycle mount as well as a range of new outfits. The DLC will also grant access to nine new armor items for players to find, as well as the Ancient Saddle and Bridle items. For more information about what is included in the Expansion Pass, visit

On the second, third, fourth and fifth places were the game "Super Mario Odyssey", "PUBG", "Persona 5" and "Horizon Zero Dawn". The quality of the Nintendo game was not only recognized by the awards it won yesterday, but also by the nominations that account for the success it has had since its launch. On this rare occasion of Nintendo actually releasing a technically and artistically impressive game, it makes sense that fan campaigns have rallied around "Breath of the Wild" to carry it to victory.

"We are absolutely humbled that voters chose Nintendo for these awards", said Reggie Fils-Aime, Nintendo of America's President and COO.
