You know how Nintendo’s bringing back their old-school World Championship competition? Well, they’ve just announced the eight U.S. locations where players can go to qualify and earn a chance to go to the big showdown at this year’s E3. Get pumped.

Folks who want to try and grab at Nintendo glory will be playing the Championship mode in Ultimate NES Remix and trying to notch high scores in Super Mario Bros., Super Mario Bros. 3 and Dr. Mario. Hopefuls will be able to do so at eight Best Buy locations throughout the country on May 30th:

1717 Harrison St.
San Francisco, CA

3675 Pacific Coast Highway
Torrance, CA

10760 NW 17th St.
Miami, FL

900 E. Golf Road
Schaumburg, IL

12905 Elm Creek Blvd. N
Maple Grove, MN

5001 Northern Blvd.
Long Island City, NY

9378 N. Central Expressway
Dallas, TX

2214 S. 48th St.
Tacoma, WA

The high score winners from each location will get flown out to E3 to play a bunch of other games against eight other mystery opponents. Let’s put money down that at least one of them will be Fred Savage.
