Those attending the Classic Gaming Expo this October at the Plaza Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas will be treated to some of the legends of gaming, the games which led to the immersive experiences of today. So many games can point to these classics and claim influence in their development today.
Likewise, professional gaming can point to events like the Nintendo World Championships and the Nintendo Campus Challenge and claim influence from them.
Never had your chance to be the top Nintendo player in the world? You will in August.
PriceCharting.com and JJGames have recreated the classic Nintendo World Championships in what has been termed the “Retro Game Championship,” which will be featured at the Classic Gaming Expo August 11-12. Attendees will have the chance to sign up and attempt either the Nintendo World Championship challenge (Super Mario Bros., Rad Racer, and Tetris) or the 1991 Nintendo Campus Challenge (Super Mario Bros. 3, Pin*Bot, and Dr. Mario).
Those dominant in the games will win luxurious prizes, such as trophies and t-shirts. And supreme video-game glory.*
And yes, it is confirmed that yours truly will have a slot in the Retro Game Championship, representing all of you, the totally rad readers of GotGame.com! (I’m brushing up on my early ’90s slang again. Cowabunga!)
The challenges are free for all Classic Gaming Expo attendees and are first-come-first-serve.
*Supreme video-game glory subject to availability. Void where prohibited.
