Ahead of this year’s upcoming Golden Joystick Awards, nominations for the eSports categories have been announced with Bandai Namco brawler Dragon Ball FighterZ being nominated for more than one award in the competitive gaming categories.
Rubbing shoulders with the likes of fellow beat-em-up Street Fighter V, Dragon Ball FighterZ has been nominated for “eSports Game of the Year” as well as “Best Competitive Game” and “Best Visual Design.” Meanwhile, FighterZ has also been shortlisted for two awards at this year’s eSports Awards in London, and is up for “eSports Game of the Year” and “eSports Breakthrough Game of the Year.” On the subject of Street Fighter V, creators Capcom have been nominated for “Studio of the Year” following the release and success of Monster Hunter World.
If FighterZ was to pick up the top prize of the year’s best eSports game, they would have to see off some seriously fierce competition. The likes of Call of Duty: WW2, CS:GO, DOTA 2, Overwatch, FIFA 18, Rocket League, League of Legends and Rainbow Six Siege are all up there to take the crown.
If you would like to show your support for your favourite eSports game, then you can do so by heading over to Golden Joystick hosts GamesRadar to cast your votes. You’ve still got plenty of time to vote, with voting closing later this month on October 25th, prior to the ceremony kicking off on November 16th.
