Nintendo is sponsoring the Retail Category, including Star Store, Supermarket, Independent Retailer, Online Retailer and High Street Chain.
A full set of categories and details of the lobbying process will be revealed on Friday, January 14th.
“We’re delighted that Nintendo is on board as such an important sponsor. They have a close relationship with stores of all sizes and have been at the heart of widening the reach of games,” said MCV publisher and Intent Media boss Stuart Dinsey.
“The UK trade awards are always sold out, and will be again, but we feel that in this time of recession, higher VAT and weaker economic confidence it is only right to do what we can to make the biggest night of the year even better value.”
