The Nintendo World Championships 1990 and 2015 were video game competitions. In both editions only citizens of the United States could enter these competitions.
Now, 25 years after the first edition of NWC, Retroplayer.nl will launch a project for an online world championship for NES gamers all over the world. A special created competition cartridge is available for backers who want to compete in this championship. The trophy has been made by an artist and is weighing more than 9 lbs. If this project is a succes, more trophies will be made and the online world championship will be a yearly event. In that case a new competition cartridge will be created each year.
