Chicory, Unpacking, And Metroid Dread Are All Up For BAFTA 2022 Games Awards

The BAFTA is one of the best awards in the business, almost entirely because winning it gives you a beautiful golden face that you can take home, and then you can put it on your face and pretend you’re a Bond villain.

Today, the list of nominations has grown, and while it’s not exactly full of Nintendo games, there are several categories that include Nintendo and indie games. Here’s the full list of the 16 categories that were announced today, with games available on Switch (or soon available on Switch) in bold.

The shortlist for two more awards, Lead Actor and Supporting Actor, will be announced in the coming weeks.
