Every year, a pile of nearly 40 media outlets selects their winners of the Game Critics Awards for E3. The roster of award recipients for E3 2017 has been unveiled, and Mario and his Mushroom Kingdom cohort are the big winners.

The “Best of Show” winner is Super Mario Odyssey. The “Best Original Game” is Mario + Rabbids Battle Kingdom. The best console game is Super Mario Odyssey. As the list runs, Mario makes off with the first three winners of 17 total awards.

He scoops up more, too. Super Mario Odyssey won “Best Action/Adventure Game” at E3 2017 and Mario + Rabbids Battle Kingdom won “Best Strategy Game.” That makes this a huge year for Nintendo and Ubisoft, as Ubisoft is making the Rabbids title.
