The Nintendo World Championships 2015 is a rather secretive affair. It’s June 14, 2015, but much of it is still a mystery. The official website doesn’t even have a list of competitors yet. Fortunately, a new video helps clear things up and build hype.
Here’s the trailer, in case you have two minutes to spare and want to learn about the Nintendo World Championships.
In case you didn’t have the time, here’s a summary. Eight games will be played, with a mix of old and new titles appearing. The only one revealed was Splatoon, which is likely appearing because it’s new and wonderful. Kevin Pereira, from Attack of the Show, will act as the host. Marcus “djWHEAT” Graham, Andre Meadows from Black Nerd Comedy and Justin Flynn will act as commentators.
Nintendo also used the video to reveal the players it has invited to the Nintendo World Championships. Here’s the full guest list of pros appearing at the event.
- Cosmo Wright
- Arin “Egoraptor” Hanson
- Kari “Essentia” Johnson
- Joshua “Jovenshire” Ovenshire
- Luke “Sinister1″ Miller
- Mychal “Trihex” Jefferson
The eight winners of the Nintendo World Championships regional qualifiers haven’t been revealed yet, but should be soon. It’s really getting exciting now!
