    'Nintendo World Championships' and it's only hosted in a few parts of the USA? At least show some love for Japan and Europe...

    Also, if they did retro games to qualify, they should have picked MKSC, the hardest one to control ;)

    As happy as this makes me, to see such an old competition rise back from the ashes after so long, I must say, as a graphic designer and illustration artist, the logo looks absolutely horrible for today's standards.

    Please update the logo for this wonderful championship. Right now it looks like a badly Photoshoped 90's sticker.

    I know this is nitpicking but it really bothers me.

    If anything, it should only take place in New York considering New York City is a center of culture for the world. The Bronx is close to the United Nations.

    Nintendo must really hate the American southwest.

    Closest one to me is the NY one, but I'm sure if I go, I'll have to compete with all the people who have WR speeds uploaded or are borderline TAS. I'll sit back and enjoy watching the monsters duke it out.

    For anyone who wants to study the route.

    which is exactly my point. if they wanted to promote their LATEST one, it wouldve been deluxe, not the wii u version. plus mk7 was still out longer.

    Is this even possible with standard frame, wheels, and super glider? I've managed to get my time down to 1:20.611 which I thought was pretty good but I didn't think of cutting corners.
