While we may have been lead to believe the Nintendo World Championships was a one time returning event, after a over two year hiatus it will be returning for another go.  Rather than during E3 like the 2015 Championships, it will be happening as a stand alone event on October 7th.

Qualifiers begin on August 19th and players will be challenged with a set of games that covers the classics and more recent titles.  This year they will also be adding the addition of a new division for players under the age of 13.

Even if you aren’t interested in the event, if you do like Nintendo content I’d recommend tuning in when its live as I’m sure they have some surprises in store for fans.
