Honkai Star Rail wins Mobile Game of the Year at TGA 2023

Honkai Star Rail is the Mobile Game of the Year at The Game Awards 2023, beating out some tough competition from Monster Hunter Now.

Honkai Star Rail Mobile Game of the Year: Herta and the trailblazers in front of a monster

Let’s be honest, Honkai Star Rail’s Mobile Game of the Year award is hardly surprising, but that doesn’t take away from the impressive accomplishment. That statement is even more true when you consider the competition Hoyoverse’s mobile game faced, with Monster Hunter Now, Terra Nil, Hello Kitty: Island Adventure, and Final Fantasy VII: Ever Crisis also being worthy winners of such an award.

Honkai Star Rail set the gaming world on fire earlier this year, quickly finding itself on our list of the best mobile RPGs (one look at our Honkai Star Rail review tells you why). In fact, several members of the PT team can’t pull themselves away from it. Even the excitement of the Zenless Zone Zero closed beta wasn’t enough to tear their attention away from their Trailblazers.

HSR had some big shoes to fill with the success of Genshin Impact, a previous winner of the prestigious Mobile Game of the Year award, but Honkai Star Rail continues to show why Hoyoverse is a powerhouse in the mobile space.
