Nintendo Revives The “Nintendo World Championships” for E3 2015
In 1990, Nintendo sponsored a video game competition for the Nintendo Entertainment System in the US. Players competed in age-bracketed city competitions for a chance to compete in the Nintendo World Championship 1990. The competition created one of the most valuable video games in history – the Nintendo World Championship 1990 NES Cartridge. 25 years later, Nintendo has revived the Nintendo World Championships for this year’s E3.
On May 30th, at select Best Buy stores around the country, players can compete for a spot in the Championships. The finals for the Nintendo World Championship will be live streamed online just before E3 2015 on Sunday, June 14th. More details are expected soon, so stay tuned.
