Nintendo World Championships: NES Edition Switch Leaked by ESRB

It looks like the Switch is going to get a Nintendo World Championships: NES Edition game in the near future. The ESRB “leaked” the news by rating the upcoming game. [Thanks, —R at Resetera!]

The ESRB rating for Nintendo World Championships: NES Edition  is “Everyone,” with the board noting it features Mild Fantasy Violence and In-Game Purchases. It also notes this is a Switch title. The Rating Summary offered more details about what to expect. It noted it will pull from NES games, with two modes referenced being Speedrun and Survival. 

Here is the full ESRB Rating Summary for the game:

“This is a collection of 2D challenges and platformer games in which players traverse through various modes (e.g., speedrun, survival). Several challenges involve reaching specific points, while others prompt players to defeat small enemies or survive brief battles. Some games depict pixelated characters using small swords or arrows to strike at enemies; enemies typically get stunned or disappear in a flash.”

We also took a screenshot of it, in case it is removed:

As a reminder, Nintendo actually held Nintendo World Championships in the past. The original was in 1990 and involved Rad Racer, Super Mario Bros, and Tetris. The affair returned in 2015 and involved the Ultimate NES Remix to qualify, while the event itself used Mario Kart 8, Metroid Prime: Federation Force, Splatoon, Super Mario Maker, and Super Smash Bros for Wii U. It came back in 2017 and involved titles like Arms, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, Metroid: Samus Returns, Super Mario Maker, Super Mario Odyssey, and Super Smash Bros Wii U.

There’s no word yet on when Nintendo World Championships: NES Edition will come to the Switch, as Nintendo hasn’t officially announced it yet.
