Pokémon Unite wins the award for best mobile game in the Google Play Best of Play 2021

Google announces the winners of the Best of Play 2021 awards in all its categories, and Pokémon Unite wins the award for Best Game of the Year.

As usual at this time of year, the first awards galas are already being held to select the best of this 2021. On this occasion, we will talk about the Google Play Best of Play.

These awards organized by Google are responsible for selecting the best games and applications for mobile devices. The 2021 edition has had a clear winner on a general level.

Pokémon Unite, the MOBA from Timi Studios, has won the award for Best game of the year at the 2021 Best of Play gala. In other words, it is the best mobile video game of this year.

Released in the summer for Nintendo Switch, the first MOBA in the Pokémon saga has become a great success, bringing together millions of players around the world. Its launch on mobiles occurred last september.

This award was presented (and selected) by the Google Play jury. Instead, the public chose Garena Free Fire as Best Game of the Year. This survival royale amassed 150 million users in August.

The producer of Pokémon Unite, Masaaki Hoshino, thanked the support of the players and the media, stating that they are very happy for the great reception of the title.

This award demonstrates that our game has been received positively by fans and the media, and while it is a great relief, at the same time it reaffirms our determination to continue to do our best to make Pokémon UNITE an even more exciting experience that fulfills with the expectations of our players
