The Nintendo World Championships are officially back from the dead

The Nintendo World Championships are officially back from the dead

And the remaining 8 will be chosen by Nintendo.

Mario Kart 8 Deluxe is one of those games you can pick up and play pretty much at any time. Based on the player's age, they will either be racing on Luigi's Mansion (12 and under) or Bowser's Castle 1 (13 and above).

The patch appears to be rather small and only fixes an issue that prolonged the time to return to the lobby after races. Likewise, the Standard Kart, Standard Wheels, and Super Glider will be used for the game as well. Younger players will be restricted to Mario, while the older players will be racing as Bowser. Years ago, Nintendo introduced their own tournament known as the Nintendo World Championships, where skilled gamers attempted to reach the top score or best time in order to win grand prizes.

Participating players will get the chance to play the "Super Mario Odyssey" game on the Nintendo Switch console and the "Metroid: Samus Returns" game for the Nintendo 3DS family of systems.

Additional presentations will dive deeper into other previously-announced titles like Fire Emblem Warriors and Xenoblade Chronicles 2, with Nintendo set to announce the full line-up in the coming weeks.

Meanwhile, My Nintendo members can opt in to receive an extra 100 Platinum Points by checking in with their My Nintendo QR Code, and the first 200 members to arrive for each event will also receive a limited My Nintendo pin.

Head over to the official site for details on what specifically will be played during qualification rounds and where you can find those events.
