Our beloved franchise’ latest entry has received a great deal of critical praise and fan love, but will it win any awards?
In a matter of hours it may win its first: Game of the Year 2011 in Spike TV’s Video Game Awards, airing live tonight at 8pm EST.
More after the jump.
But will it win? It’s up against some heavy contenders: Batman: Arkham City, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, Portal 2, and Uncharted 3. It defeated two of those (Batman and Skyrim) in recent online polls, so it may have a shot.
Whether Skyward Sword wins the award or not, Spike’s VGA will be honoring The Legend of Zelda series with its first ever Video Game Hall of Fame award, so it will be well worth tuning in to simply see that.
If you cannot watch the awards show tonight, check back in with us; we’ll have an update as soon as its announced!
