Blade & Soul – Winner of Korea Game Awards 2012

At the annual Korea Game Awards just a few hours ago, an event which happens before the day G*Star begins, NCsoft’s Blade & Soul won the prestigious Presidential Award (similar to Game of the Year). This is the 3rd NCsoft MMO in recent years to nab this award, joining Lineage 2 and Aion. Blade & Soul also won 3 other major awards as well. Below is a list of other winners (skipped some unknown games).

In a rare appearance by industry standards, NCsoft’s CEO (right, above) appeared at the event and gave a speech. Prior to that, industry folks were apparently speculating if the media shy boss will appear. He shared the same table with Nexon’s CEO (left, below).
