The winners of TGS Media Awards 2020 were announced in Japan on October 9, 2020. This year’s TGS Media Awards was held by four major Japanese media outlets, which are Famitsu, Dengeki, 4Gamer, and V Jump.
In addition to giving their own awards, the group also held a public poll that was open to Japanese Twitter users during the four presentation days of Tokyo Game Show 2020, which ran from September 24 to 27, 2020. The poll determined the Japanese public’s most anticipated games that are slated for release on September 24, 2020, or later. Genshin Impact apparently won people over.
