Smash and grab

Nintendo’s Super Smash Bros. Ultimate will be fighting it out for Game of the Year and Best Fighting Game after launching in December 2018 and just missing last year’s cutoff.

Smash will also duke it out for Best Family Game, alongside other Nintendo releases such as Luigi’s Mansion 3, Ring Fit Adventure, Super Mario Maker 2 and Yoshi’s Crafted World.

Melbourne-based indie developer Mountains took home Best Mobile Game of the Year in 2018 for the studio's interactive story title Florence.
