The qualifiers for the Nintendo World Championships 2017 will be held in Best Buy stores in August and September. People will play Mario Kart 7 on Nintendo 3DS systems for a chance to fly out and participate in the main event. Kids 12 and under will use Mario in a Standard Kart with Standard Wheels and Super Glider to play through a Time Trial on the Luigi’s Mansion course. People 13 and older will use Bowser in a Standard Kart with Standard Wheels and Super Glider to play through a Time Trial on the Bowser Castle 1 course that originally appeared in the Game Boy Advance Mario Kart game. The people with the highest score in each group from each testing location will be a finalist in the Nintendo World Championships 2017.
