After it’s triumphant return back at E3 2015, it was only a matter of time before Nintendo’s legendary tournament would awake from it’s short hiatus.
This morning Nintendo announced that the Nintendo World Championships is back for another year on October 7th, 2017. Qualifiers for the event will start at select Best Buy’s starting August 19th and run throughout the weekends ending with September 9th & 10th. The qualifiers will involve a time trial race in Mario Kart 7. Attendees wil also get the chance to try out demos for Super Mario Odyssey (which I highly recommend.), and Metroid: Samus Returns. Check out the main page of the event to see if one of your Best Buy’s is a qualifier store, and get training!
