John Numbers has been crowned this years Nintendo World Champion following an intense competition at this year’s E3 in Los Angeles.
The final round consisted of a mash-up of zany levels from upcoming Wii U title Mario Maker, with Comso and John Numbers going head-to-head for the title of Nintendo World Champion. The first three levels were played separately and the fourth and final level being played simultaneously, with John Numbers roaring to victory over his rival Cosmo.
The Nintendo World Championships returned this year for the competition’s 25th anniversary, with competitors taking part in four stages playing titles such as Mario Kart 8, Splatoon, Super Smash Bros and the newly announced 3DS title Blast Ball.
The losers of each heat were offered a chance at redemption in Underground heats, which involved speed runs of iconic levels in classic Nintendo titles such as the first dungeon in The Legend of Zelda and the battle with Mother Brain in Super Metroid.
John Numbers was presented with his trophy by General Manager of Nintendo, Shigeru Miyamoto, with both finalists also receiving a New Nintendo 3DS autographed by Miyamoto himself.
