The 2020 Game Awards nominees are here! It’s no surprise that Final Fantasy VII Remake has been nominated for Game of the Year, Best Game Direction, Best Narrative, Best Art Direction, Best Score and Music, and Best Role Playing.
But Final Fantasy VII Remake is far from the only Japanese game among nominees.

The Game Awards gave this description of itself: “We bring together a diverse group of game developers, game players, and notable names from popular culture to celebrate and advance gaming’s position as the most immersive, challenging and inspiring form of entertainment.
