Bloodborne, Dark Souls III, Metal Gear Solid V and Splatoon Win VFX-Japan Awards

on March 3, 2016 2:40 PM

Every year the VFX-Japan Institute, a prominent local organization that promote the growth of the Japanese visual and special effects industry, assigns its Excellence awards  to local products in several categories, ranging from movies to video games.

This year’s awards ceremony was held this morning at the UDX theater in Akihabara, Tokyo, and the winners for the video games category have been announced. Interestingly, one hasn’t been released yet:

  • Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain
  • Splatoon
  • Dark Souls III
  • Bloodborne: The Old Hunters

Looks like From Software impressed the judges, considering that two of its games are among the four winners.

On the other hand, Kojima Productions and Hideo Kojima aren’t new to the awards, as they won last year with Ground Zeroes, alongside Knack, Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII and Gan Turismo 6.

Definitely a multi-platform gamer, he still holds the old dear PC nearest to his heart, while not disregarding any console on the market. RPGs (of any nationality) and MMORPGs are his daily bread, but he enjoys almost every other genre, prominently racing simulators, action and sandbox games. He is also one of the few surviving fans of the flight simulator genre on Earth.
