Mashable

Nintendo unveiled the Nintendo World Championships 2017 today, marking the competitive tournament's official return to the land of the living. Nintendo World Championships 2017 is the third installment of the multi-game tournament; the first kicked off in 1990 and the second went down in 2015. The tournament in 2015 was a fun callback to the 1990 championships, but now that Nintendo is hosting another just two years later, this could mean that the Nintendo World Championships are here to stay. The 2017 tournament kicks off in August with Mario Kart qualifiers and two competition pools for people 12 and younger and people 13 and older.
