Original The Legend of Zelda Will Be Played At 2015 Nintendo World Championships

We’re less than two weeks away from E3 2015, and Nintendo is picking up its pace to release information about its 2015 Nintendo World Championships, which will be held during the expo.

A recent tweet by the official account of Nintendo of America left everyone surprised, when it stated that the original Legend of Zelda will be one of the games that the top sixteen Nintendo players in the world will be competing in.

Just how do you compete in a Legend of Zelda game? Nintendo isn’t revealing that just yet, and we’ll have to wait until the event kicks off to know for sure what the company has in store for us.

It’s been 25 years since the last Nintendo World Championships took place in 1990, and that was based on the movie The Wizard. This is truly an extraordinary time for those who were lucky enough to remember the excitement that Nintendo brought in that classic era.

The Nintendo World Championships 2015 will take place at 3:00 PM Pacific on Sunday, June 14 in Los Angeles. During the same week, Nintendo will also be hosting its annual Digital Event on Tuesday, June 16 where it will focus on upcoming titles and offerings for the Summer season.

Qualifiers for the tournament are currently being held in eight Best Buys outlets across America.
