Nintendo World Championship coming to you! Super Mario Odyssey and Metroid Demos

Nintendo is hosting a World Tournament this October in an ultimate test of Nintendo Gaming Skill. There will be eight qualifying events across the United States at certain Best Buy Stores. Qualifiers will be from August 19th to September 10th. The game is Mario Kart 7 for the Nintendo 3DS. If you think you’re the best driver in the United States, try and see if you’ll qualify for the Nintendo World Tournament.

Game Mode

For 12 and under, you’ll play DS Luigi Mansion Track with a standard kart, as Mario. 13 and over, you’ll play as Bowser in GBA Bowser’s Castle with a standard kart. Both modes are Time Trial and you’ll have two tries. Those who have the best time will qualify for the final competition in Manhattan.


Select cities have certain dates so check the link to see if there is a city nearby where you can participate. There are 8 cities in total: San Jose (Bay Area), Bronx (New York), Evanstone (Chicago), Torrance (Los Angeles), Richfield (Minneapolis), Dallas, Tukwila (Seattle), and Hialeah (Miami).

Free Stuff

While you’re there, you can play Mario Odyssey and Metroid: Samus Returns demos and possibly earn a My Nintendo Pin if you’re one of the first 200 people to check in. If you bring your My Nintendo QR code, you’ll also earn 100 Platinum points.





The final competition will be in Manhattan, New York in the Manhattan Center’s Grand Ballroom. I will update later on as more details are released.
