Best Buy to Host Nintendo Qualifying Tournaments on May 30th
Nintendo World Championships? What? My dreams come true?
Qualifying Events will be taking place at 8 select Best Buy locations around the United States on May 30. Anybody ages 13 and older can take part and (hopefully) claim their rightful spot at the championship in Los Angeles June 14th-the same week as E3.
The tournament will feature the Championship Mode of Ultimate NES Remix game for the Nintendo 3DS family of systems. In this mode, players will take on a series of three score-based challenges in Super Mario Bros., Super Mario Bros. 3 and Dr. Mario. Games and consoles will be available at the competition and Ultimate NES Remix is available for download via the Nintendo eShop so you can start practicing.
The top scorer from each of the eight regional competitions will move on to the final event in Los Angeles, which will be a multi-round competition with a variety of Nintendo games. An additional eight competitors selected by Nintendo will also compete in the Nintendo World Championships 2015.
The qualifying events will take place from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. local time at Best Buy stores at the following locations:
