@TheFredSavage – “Ok, so where are these Nintendo championships being held and how the hell do I get there??”

And in other news, something really surreal has happened… Fred Savage, child star of the Super Mario Bros. 3 commercial turned film, the 1989 cult-classic “The Wizard” (“I love the Power Glove… It’s so bad.”), and the current real-life Director of Phil of the Future on Disney Channel (as well as episodes of That’s So Raven, Wizards of Waverly Place, Hannah Montana, Drake & Josh, Boy Meets World & Ned’s Declassified)… made waves with this tweet.

@TheFredSavage – “Ok, so where are these Nintendo championships being held and how the hell do I get there??”

That’s right. Fred Savage himself, the boyhood hero of The Wizard, appealed to Nintendo to be included in the Nintendo World Championships 2015! Will he actually be there?!?!

I guess we’ll have to wait until later today to find out!

The return of the Nintendo World Championships is truly an absolutely ingenious idea on Nintendo’s part, and follows-up last year’s E3 2014 Super Smash Bros. Wii U tournament nicely, while building on that concept, taking it to the next level, and playing the nostalgia card all at once!

Granted, many of Nintendo’s biggest fans are going to be too young to remember the original Nintendo World Championship in 1990, myself including (I was just a wee lad); but those who do remember the late 80s/early 90s are definitely going to be in for an awesome treat.

Along with the rest of the gaming world.

I CAN’T WAIT!

How excited are you for the return of the Nintendo World Championships?
