Furthermore, while it didn't win, New Horizons was also up for Game of the Year and Online Game of the Year.

Nintendo's success didn't stop there, as Mario Kart Live: Home Circuit was awarded with Racing Game of the Year. It beat F1 2020 and Dirt 5 to the finish line.

The Italian plumber received two other nominations too, the first of which was Outstanding Technical Achievement. The other was Immersive Reality Achievement.

However, Hades was the big winner at this year's D.I.C.E Awards with five different accolades.

The rogue-like snapped up Game of the Year, beating Animal Crossing: New Horizons, Ghost of Tsushima, The Last of Us Part II and Final Fantasy VII Remake.

Hades also won Outstanding Achievement in Game Direction, Outstanding Achievement in Game Design, Action Game of the Year and Outstanding Achievement for an Independent Game.
