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.

Risks and challenges
The costs to produce a new championship cartridge for the NES isn't cheap. €3000 is the minimum we need to produce this game and championship.
Our cost include: carts (using new NES molds and not recycled NES carts), labels, PCB boards, programming and developing,checking and adding scores.
All the parts for the competition cartridge will be ordered from the United States and Canada. Shipping these items could result in some delay. In that case, we will keep you updated.
Our goal is to produce this game no matter what. But with your contribution through Kickstarter, it will be launched sooner.If you support us, there are some very cool exclusive rewards available.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
