In 1990, Nintendo fever swept across the nation in the form of the Nintendo World Championships. Now, 25 years later, the legendary competition is returning to help kick off the biggest week in gaming, E3. It starts at 3pm PDT, with a pre-show beginning at 2:35pm PDT.
We don’t know if any major announcements will come out of this event, but if there’s anything Nintendo loves to do, it’s the unexpected. Additionally, Nintendo of Australia also tweeted that it will also give us a chance to see more the new Smash fighters introduced during this morning’s Direct. For those of us who haven’t grabbed the DLC for ourselves just yet, there’s a great chance we’ll get to see them in action tonight.
You can watch the livestream using the video embedded above. Let’s hope this competition is just as memorable as its quarter-century-old predecessor!
