The Entertainment Software Rating Board (ESRB) has issued a rating for Nintendo World Championships: NES Edition, leaking the collection’s impending release on Nintendo Switch.

“This is a collection of 2D challenges and platformer games in which players traverse through various modes (e.g., speedrun, survival),” the rating board’s summary reads.

“Several challenges involve reaching specific points, while others prompt players to defeat small enemies or survive brief battles. Some games depict pixelated characters using small swords or arrows to strike at enemies; enemies typically get stunned or disappear in a flash.”

For the 1990 Nintendo World Championships, competitors played on a special Nintendo Entertainment System (NES) cartridge which has since gone on to become one of the rarest and most valuable among collectors.

The cartridge had three minigames based on Super Mario Bros., Rad Racer and Tetris, with the player’s objective being to achieve the highest score across all three within a time limit of 6 minutes and 21 seconds.

It is unclear when Nintendo will officially announce Nintendo World Championships: NES Edition, sparking speculation that a Nintendo Direct may be planned for broadcast in the coming weeks.
