Capcom has won the Best Studio award at this year’s Golden Joystick Awards.
The Japanese developer and publisher won the award in a year that saw them release Resident Evil: Village and Monster Hunter Rise to great acclaim.
However, there was a lot of competition from the likes of Arkane, Double Fine, Housemark, IO Interactive, and Drakeneck & Friends, who have released some great games this year. These include PS5 exclusives Deathloop (Arkane) and Returnal (Housemark), indie sensation Bonfire Peaks (Dracneck and Friends), and excellent sequels in Psychonauts 2 (Double Fine) and Hitman 3 (IO Interactive).
You can check out the full list of nominees below:
- Capcom (WINNER)
- double fine
- Drakeneck and Friends
- io interactive
Still, while it was a strong list of contenders, Capcom’s recent strong run has led to the likes of Resident Evil: Village (which already won the Best Audio Golden Joystick this evening) as well as Monster Hunter Rise, currently the likes of Nintendo. Thanks for continued. Switch exclusive outing for the franchise, which is set to arrive on PC early next year.
Writing in our Monster Hunter Rise review, Hirun Cryer said: “Monster Hunter Rise is a great start to Capcom’s franchise on the Nintendo Switch, adding cleverly sublime new tools to an established arsenal like Wirebug, and the entry Serves as a welcome point. Newcomers with a highly welcoming tutorial segment.”
And for fans of Capcom’s games, that hot streak looks set to continue with Pragmata, a mysterious new-gen game coming to PS5 and Xbox Series X in 2023, which we’ve got yet to see in an impressive-looking demo. Nothing more to see. Revealed at Sony’s Future of Play Showcase in September 2020.
