Nintendo World Championship
In 1990, players across 29 different cities competed for high scores on a special cartridge that combined three very different games, over a span of six minutes and twenty-one seconds. One game featured a flagship character… another was a sprint through traffic and turns… and the final challenge– should enough time remain on the clock– was on one of the most popular puzzle games ever made.
Now, at RetroWorld Expo 2017, we are thrilled to announce that attendees will have a chance to compete in this same way for a chance to win the First Annual RetroWorld Championship. While we won’t be using *actual* Nintendo World Championships carts– because they’re kind of expensive– we do have a pair of reproduction carts that will be used for the event..
