Nintendo World Championships 2015 RECAP

Updated on June 16, 2015

All you need to know about the event

On Sunday June,14th 2015 around 3-4pm the Nintendo World Championships took place at the Electronic Entertainment Expo located at Los Angeles. The event started off with a presentation of Yoshi Wolly World, as it was shown a good amount of gameplay footage before the competition. Another announcement was made by Shigesato Itoi for the eshop release of Earthbound Beginnings which was the Famicom release of the game called mother 1 which released in 1989.

Kevin Pereira was the main host of the event, and did some very well praised commentary for the show as he revealed each and every game the contestants where about to play. In attendance of the event were Thor Aackerlurd and Jeff Hansen the 1990 Nintendo Championships winners. There were 16 players in attendance, as well as surprised guests and a few surprises.

Out of 16 players, a few players who lost would enter the underground elimination rounds for a chance at redemption for the semi-finals. There were 5 stages which each stage being a different game the contestant had to compete in, as well they were 3 elimination rounds where the undergounds who lost from the previous stage game played an elimination round with the survivor of the previous elimination round at a chance for redemption to play at the semi-finals. Only 1 survivor was able to come out of the 3 elimination rounds.

The 16 players would play the first stage game which was Splatoon which was played with 4 teams of 4. 12 winners would advance to stage 2 as the 4 players would lost went to the 1st elimination round game which was the legend of zelda for the Nintendo Entertainment System. The 4 underdogs had a chance to best nes classic The Legend of Zelda, the winner who did better in that game was the survivor. The survivor was still not safe as he/she awaited the next elimination round to verse the players who lost in stage 2 of the competition. Stage 2 game was actually a world premiere of the new 3ds game call Blast Ball. The 12 remaining players competed in this new game which looked like a Halo/Metroid Prime style game with a different approach to multiplayer. After stage 2 was finished 8 players advanced on to the next stage and 4 players went to the elimination round 2 to verse with the survivor of the first elimination round (the winner of the Legend of Zelda). The 2nd elimination round game was Super Metroid for the Super Nintendo. 5 underdogs went to compete and tried their hardest to finish Super metroid Level 1 as fast as possible, the winner would advance to the last and final elimination round for a chance to compete in the semi-finals, the players who lost where eliminated. Stage 3 game was Mario Kart 8, and it was played in 2 teams of 4. Only 2 players would win and advance to the next round. The 5 players who lost in Mario Kart 8 would have one last chance to compete in the last elimination round against the survivor (of the previous elimination round). 6 players would play the last and final elimination round, and only 1 survivor would have the chance to play in the semi-finals against the remaining players. The last elimination round before the semi-finals would be of the game Balloon Fight a classic Nes game. The winner of the last elimination round would have the chance to enter back into the semi-finals with the remaining players and play in stage 4 of the competition. Before stage 4, Reggie Fils-aime came on stage in the Nintendo World Championships 2015 to promise his challenge to the winner of the 2014 Smash Brothers tournament, a man by the name of Hungrybox. Hungrybox challenged Reggie for a verse match in smash bros, and Reggie quoted "My oppurtunity is coming with Smash on 3ds, cause now i'm going to play it on the go. I'm going to be able to come back up next time and KICK YOUR ASS" . Reggie Fils-aime played as Ryu (Street fighter) in smash bros, and Hungrybox played as Jigglypuff. Reggie played a good fight, but ultimately lost to HungryBox. Reggie jokingly offered Hungrybox a chance to work for Nintendo, but Hungrybox refused and said he was content working as an engineer. Roy, the video game character from the Fire Emblem series was also shown as a recurring character in the new Smash Bros game. In the semi-final, the remaining contestants played Smash Bros in stage 4 of the competition. Only 2 players who won would advance to the finals and the other 2 would be eliminated. Stage 5 only consisted of 2 final players by the name of John Numbers and Cosmo. The final game of the competition was Mario Maker for the Nintendo WIIU and the Nintendo 3ds. Mario Maker, is a game that allows you to create your own levels, with creative designs and added enemies you can place to make the game harder for other players who play your custom levels. The stages were already designed by the host of Nintendo Tree-house, they already planned how hard they would make the stages for the contestants who were about to play Mario Maker. It was decided who was going to go first by a flip of a coin. They played a few levels, one player after the other. whoever did better got 15 seconds time bonus from each level played for a chance for the level where cosmo and John Numbers would battle head to head with each other on a 1 on 1. John Numbers ultimately did very well on the level against cosmo and was crown the Nintendo World champion of 2015, as Cosmo being runner up.

As the competition came to a close, Shigeru Miyamoto came on stage and celebrated with everyone on stage and in the audience of the 30th anniversary of Super Mario Bros for the nes. Mr. Miyamoto expressed how he loved creating video games ever since he began. He then rewarded John Numbers the winner of the Nintendo World Championships 2015 with a golden statue of Mario. John Numbers and Cosmo both received a signed New 3ds XL by Shigeru Miyamoto himself. The crowd celebrated and cheered for the winners and for the event which was another great historical moment in Nintendo history, the show closed with a thank you screen from the Super Mario World for the Super Nintendo. All in all, Nintendo world championships was an exciting time for gamers all around.
