My retro gaming heart is already in love with Nintendo’s newly revealed Switch collection of NES speedrunning challenges

Nintendo World Championships: NES Edition is real, and it’s a speedrunning-focused collection of retro challenges set to launch on July 18. The announcement trailer included less than a minute of footage, but it’s spoken so deeply to my retro gaming heart that I’m already about to call this my 2024 game of the year.

The game features 150 challenges spread across 13 NES classics, all focused on completing an in-game objective as quickly as possible. There are challenges ranging from beating the first level of Super Mario Bros. to defeating a certain number of enemies in Zelda 2. You earn coins from completing these objectives that you can use to unlock further challenges, and you’ll get letter rankings based on your performance after each goal.
