The BAFTA nominations for their video game awards for 2017 have been announced, and Ninja Theory’s Hellblade leads the pack with a staggering nine nominations. It is followed by Horizon: Zero Dawn, which got eight nominations. The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, meanwhile, got five nominations.

What is most curious about these awards is the apparent general snubbing that Japanese games (outside of Nintendo’s) seem to have gotten in the nominees list- for instance, neither NieR nor Persona are nominated for Game of the Year, nor for Best Soundtrack; Persona 5 is also ignored in the best artstyle category.

On the other hand, BAFTAs are understandably more skewed towards British sensibilities, and British games, so it does make sense. You can check out the full list of nominees below- will Breath of the Wild take the win here as well? We will find out on April 12, which is when the awards ceremony will be held in London.
