When The Game Awards 2016 are held later this week, fans that have yet to play some of the year’s best titles will be in for a bit of a treat. For the first time ever, Nintendo will offer eShop discounts for titles that are up for awards.
It’s currently unknown which titles will be discounted, though a number of games available for Nintendo systems have been nominated, including Fire Emblem Fates, Severed, Xenoblade Chronicles X, Lego Star Wars: The Force Awakens and more. The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is also in the running for Most Anticipated Game, and that anticipation will likely only grow with an exclusive glimpse at the title, which will appear during the broadcast.
The Game Awards 2016 will stream live Thursday December 1 at 9 PM ET.
