In a recent interview with Kotaku, Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aimé discussed the success of the Nintendo World Championships, as well as the future of the event.
According to Reggie, Nintendo considers the World Championships to be an “unqualified success”; he also stated that they are going to consider ways to improve the event in future years, such as bringing the event to more locations than this year’s eight Best Buy qualifiers. Here’s Reggie’s full statement:
“This year’s World Championships was a phenomenal success. We are certainly going to go back to [Nintendo of America HQ in] Redmond, look at what we achieved and challenge ourselves what else can we do. Not only in terms of how broader do we potentially make it geographically, but what’s the right frequency? Probably not waiting another 25 years would make some sense. But we’re going to talk about it and see. No commitments, but certainly we know the fans were excited and from a business perspective it was an unqualified success.” — Reggie Fils-Aimé
