Nintendo World Championships 2017

It’s been awhile since Super Mario Maker last received some new content. But earlier today, the course from the Nintendo World Championships was added. If you’re interested in taking on that level for yourself, you now have the opportunity to do so.


IGN recently spoke with Nintendo of America senior product marketing manager Bill Trinen and senior VP of sales & marketing Doug Bowser. The two had plenty to say about the Nintendo World Championships. Between the two, we’re able to hear about how the games tend to be a surprise, how the titles are chosen in the first place, and the types of participants brought in this year.

Read about these responses below. You can find the full article on IGN with more comments here.

The Nintendo World Championships 2017 took place this past weekend, and while it was happening, the event was being shown live on Disney XD. It seems to have gone over quite well given how the broadcast had the highest ratings for an eSports program on the channel this year. It beat out the Smash Bros. Wii U finals at EVO 2017 and repeats of Nintendo’s Splatoon 2 tournaments.

We also have a look at how the Nintendo World Championships 2017 stack up against eSports ratings across all channels in 2017. It came in 20th, which is pretty respectable, especially since many of the top spots are for CBS’ Candy Crush show.

Nintendo published an announcement recapping all of the action that took place at the Nintendo World Championships 2017 today. Read it in full below.

The Nintendo World Championships 2017 are in the books, with Thomas G taking home top honors. If you missed out on any of the action, you can catch up on it below with the full recording.

Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime isn’t in attendance at this year’s Nintendo World Championships, but he did record a message that appeared during the opening minutes. We have it below.

After a two-year hiatus, the Nintendo World Championships are back. Nintendo will be hosting the 2017 event today, with the proceedings beginning not too long from now. The tournament should kick off at 2 PM PT / 5 PM ET / 10 PM in the UK / 11 PM in Europe.

You can watch the Nintendo World Championships as the event happens below. We’re not saying there will be any announcements (there may very well be nothing), but if anything happens to show up, we’ll have the news on the site.

Ahead of the Nintendo World Championships this weekend, ESPN spoke with a three important folks at Nintendo: Reggie Fils-Aime, Nintendo Treehouse’s JC Rodrigo, and Bill Trinen.

Aside from the Nintendo World Championships, there was talk about competitive play in general and how Nintendo is approaching the scene going forward. Read what Reggie, Rodrigo, and Trinen had to say below.

Nintendo has isssued a new announcement covering additional details about the Nintendo World Championships 2017.

First, Metroid: Samus Returns is confirmed to be in the tournament. Also, along with the 16 qualifying players, 8 players from across the country and around the world have been invited, including talented speed-runners, tournament players and online personalities from the United States, Europe, Canada and Mexico. Actor and Super Smash Bros. tournament player Asa Butterfield and WWE Superstar Bayley will be present.

Earlier in the month, Nintendo and Best Buy halted the Miami qualifying round for the Nintendo World Championships 2017 due to the threat from Hurricane Irma. Nintendo now has an update on the situation.

Sadly, the qualifying round will not be rescheduled as a result of the hurricane’s “ongoing effects”. Nintendo says that “the two remaining spots in the tournament will instead be filled by selecting the participants from other regions with the best non-qualifying times.” It’s unfortunate, but there’s not much that can be done in this sort of situation.
