Nintendo legend to receive Lifetime Achievement prize at Vancouver awards

Nintendo legend Shigeru Miyamoto has been voted by industry and media experts as the recipient of the ELANs' inaugural videogames Lifetime Achievement award this year.

The event, which recognises success across the visual arts, will also hand similar awards to Japanese animation icon Hayao Miyazaki and effects guru Paul Debevec.

The ELANs, taking place on April 25 in Vancouver, will also hand out awards across a variety of categories, with Left 4 Dead and Fallout 3 nominated in seven categories apiece, while Gears of War 2 and Fable II are also well-represented in the lists.

The awards, which started in 2006, will this year be hosted by Tom Kenny, who provides the voice of SpongeBob SquarePants.
