The Nintendo World Championship is coming back this fall, Nintendo said today. Qualifying matches will take place at Best Buys across the United States, so “World Championship” might be a misnomer. To qualify, you’ll have to play... Mario Kart 7? What? More info here.


Why is it still surprising that Nintendo can’t finish a thought? Bring in something cool! A world championship!

...have the qualifiers at fucking best buy!

...make them play a Mario Kart from like...two gens ago!

Somewhere along the product line there is somebody who is an absolutely massive idiot, but is also allowed to continuously make big decisions on everything Nintendo does. The one true idiot is the only possible explanation. No way an entire group of people could be so clueless.
