Nintendo are bringing back the Nintendo World Championships this year, with aspiring wizards trekking to various Best Buys across the US to take part in the heats. Whilst there, competitors will not only be trying to set their best times in Mario Kart 7 for a chance at the finals, but will also be able to try out Metroid: Samus Returns for 3DS, and the upcoming Super Mario Odyssey for Nintendo Switch.
Nintendo’s hybrid console has been selling like baked goods fresh out of the oven, and as a result there are still people who are struggling to get their hands on one. However, Best Buy have confirmed that there will be “limited quantities of Nintendo Switch consoles for purchase at these store events.”
So if the chance to appear at the NWC finals in New York in October wasn’t enough incentive, now you can go and grab yourself a shiny new Switch while you’re at it. For a full list of the participating stores and their respective heat dates, head on over to the Best Buy website.
