While Nintendo did have a presence this year at Gamescom in Cologne, much like E3 the company opted not to have a press conference and simply had a presence on the show floor, with no major announcements. Now that the show is over, the best of show awards have been handed out and Nintendo is the recipient of two of those awards.
Mario Kart 8 won best overall Wii U game, but it also took home Best Family Game from the show. In addition to that, Nintendo won Best Mobile Game with The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds.
It’s interesting to note that the PS4 took away best hardware from the show this year.
