In both cases, the Game of the Year award has the same name: Genshin Impact.

The miHoYo adventure hit the markets in September as a free open world RPG with micropayments. A proposal that amassed great success in a short time, being the mobile game that generated the most revenue in October worldwide. And, given what we’ve seen, it seems that its quality has also convinced the editorial team of these digital platforms.

It also wins the Most Innovative Game of the Year award, a second accolade that it shares with 4 other games. On the iOS side , Apple’s platform Genshin Impact wins the award for Best iPhone Game of 2020 , while the award for Best iPad Game goes to Legends of Runeterra, from Riot Games. Big hits for this adventure a few months after its release, and then we show you the winners of the Android and App Store awards .
