As you can see, the challenges in the game are to reach the Super Mushroom as fast as you can in Super Mario Bros., defeat Octorox as fast as possible in The Legend of Zelda, and reach a specified gate as fast as possible in Metroid. And those are just three of the 150+ challenges available in the game, spread across 13 NES games.

Each week, you can compete for the top spot on the World Championship Weekly Global Online Leaderboards, or you can compete against up to seven friends in a local eight-player party mode.

“With ‘bite-sized’ challenges and an automatic rewind feature, you don’t need to master entire games to feel like a Nintendo World Champion,” reads the trailer’s description.

Along with today’s reveal, Nintendo also unveiled a deluxe set for the Nintendo World Championship: NES Edition. It includes collectibles such as art cards, a golden NES cartridge, and a physical game card.

Nintendo World Championships: NES Edition hits Switch on July 18, 2024. The deluxe set costs $59.99 and the digital eShop edition costs $29.99.
