The House of Mario has revealed which eight Best Buy stores will host the regional qualifiers for the 2015 Nintendo World Championships.
A Best Buy store near you could be participating in video game history. Nintendo is bringing back the Nintendo World Championships and has selected eight Best Buy stores around the United States to host qualifying matches so its best players can duke-it-out at E3 2015. The Nintendo World Championships is all about testing your skills with some of the greatest retro games ever made. The regional qualifiers (locations listed below) will have gamers playing the Championship Mode of Ultimate NES Remix for the Nintendo 3DS to find someone who can set the highest score possible. Players will participate in three score-focused challenges consisting of gameplay sessions from Super Mario Bros., Super Mario Bros. 3 and Dr. Mario.
Obviously, you might want to get your own copy of Ultimate NES Remix for the 3DS and start practicing if you're serious about winning. Each of these eight locations will have their top scorer get a spot in the Nintendo World Championships' grand finals at E3 on June 14. Nintendo is also selecting eight other competitors of their own choosing to make it a grand total of 16 pros playing for video game supremacy in LA next month. Even if you win the regional event, just know that you've gotta provide your own transportation to LA.
The qualifying events will take place from 10:00 AM to 7:00 PM local time at the following Best Buy locations on May 30:
