Rez Infinite Nominated for The Game Awards 2016

Rez Infinite and The King of Fighters XIV Nominated for The Game Awards 2016

The list of nominees for The Game Awards 2016 has been revealed, and while there’s no game developed by SEGA or Atlus on the list, there are still two games that have some link to the companies. First of all, Enhanced Games’ Rez Infinite, the enhanced port of the original Dreamcast game, is nominated in two categories: “Best VR game” and “Best Music / Sound Design”. The VR port of the game has received very positive reactions, particularly for its new Area X, a new mode specifically designed to take advantage of the PS4 hardware. Having played the game, I can say that it certainly deserves the nominations.

Next is The King of Fighters XIV, which was developed by SNK and published by Atlus and Deep Silver in respectively the Americas and Europe, which is nominated for Best Fighting Game. Below you can find an overview of the competition they face in their categories. You can view the complete list of the nominees on the official website. Winners will be revealed live at The Game Awards 2016, which takes place on Thursday, December 1. The award ceremony begins at 8:30 PM ET / 5:30 PM PT, and you can find a list of streaming services where you can view it here.
