Nintendo has just released some new details about the Nintendo World Championships that will take place next month in New York. Thousands of competitors across the country competed in seven regional qualifiers, with 16 top players across two age brackets qualifying to travel to New York to compete against one another in Nintendo World Championships on Oct. 7. The event is a multi-game tournament that challenges players of all ages to compete in a gauntlet of games representing the past and present of Nintendo games and systems that fans will know and love. Today, Nintendo revealed just one of the many games to be included the tournament: the recently released Metroid: Samus Returns game for the Nintendo 3DS family of systems.

“Nintendo World Championships 2017 is more than just another video game tournament,” said Doug Bowser, Nintendo of America’s Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing. “It is a celebration of Nintendo games old and new, and Nintendo fans past and present. Kids, parents and gamers of all ages will be thrilled by the excitement of seeing who will come out on top.”

Included among the qualifying players are a few dedicated competitors who traveled to multiple locations across the country to secure their spot in the tournament, as well as the winner of the Nintendo World Championships 2015, who earned his way back in to defend his title. The 16 qualifying players will be joined by 8 players invited to compete from across the country and around the world, including talented speed-runners, tournament players and online personalities from the United States, Europe, Canada and Mexico. These invitees include actor and Super Smash Bros. tournament player Asa Butterfield and WWE Superstar Bayley.

When the big event kicks off in New York on Oct. 7, it will be hosted by Nintendo fan and online personality Andrea Rene, with play-by-play and analysis by gamer, sports broadcaster and Nintendo fan Jordan Kent.

The Nintendo World Championships 2017 event will be livestreamed at https://nwc.nintendo.com starting at 5 p.m. ET/2 p.m. PT on Oct. 7. Fans who are already in New York will have the opportunity to witness all the action in person. A limited number of free tickets will be distributed on a first-come, first-served basis outside Manhattan Center’s Grand Ballroom the day of the event (minors must be accompanied by a parent or guardian).
