At the ceremony, the Grand Prize is an award given to the three best works by game creators that take place in Japan and Asia from October 2019 to September 2020.
The event itself was quite fun. Well, as long as you are used to the Japanese media and don’t mind the fact that everything is meticulously written and the presenters always fake their surprise. Special mention to Yoshinori Kitase appearing with a Buster Sword and posing as Cloud when Final Fantasy VII Remake won his award.
Yoshinori Kitase mentioned that “the Remake project is just beginning.” We also got to see some development images.
The full results of the Grand Prix:
- eFootball PES 2020 de Konami Digital Entertainment

- For Dragon Ball Z Kakarot in particular, the event included a short video message from Masako Nozawa, the voice of Goku (and his sons).
