Capcom has won Best Studio at this year’s Golden Joystick Awards.
There was plenty of competition though, from the likes of Arkane, Double Fine, Housemarque, IO Interactive, and Draknek & Friends, who have all released some fantastic games this year. These include the likes of PS5 exclusives Deathloop (Arkane) and Returnal (Housemarque), indie sensation Bonfire Peaks (Draknek & Friends), and excellent sequels in Psychonauts 2 (Double Fine) and Hitman 3 (IO Interactive).
You can see the full list of nominees below:
- Capcom (Winner)
- Double Fine
- Draknek & Friends
- IO Interactive
Still, while it was a strong list of contenders, Capcom’s recent strong run has continued thanks to the likes of Resident Evil: Village (which has already won the Best Audio Golden Joystick this evening), as well as Monster Hunter Rise, a currently Nintendo Switch exclusive outing for the franchise, which will be coming to PC early next year.
Writing in our Monster Hunter Rise review, Hirun Cryer said: “Monster Hunter Rise is a great debut for Capcom’s franchise on the Nintendo Switch, smartly providing sublime new tools to the established arsenal like the Wirebug, and acting as a welcoming point of entry for newcomers with overly welcoming tutorial segments. “
And for fans of Capcom’s games, this hot streak looks set to continue with Pragmata, a mysterious new-gen game coming to PS5 and Xbox Series X in 2023, which we’re yet to see anything more of than an impressive looking demo that was revealed at Sony’s Future of Play showcase back in September 2020.
