With E3 2015 coming at us fast, Nintendo is continuing to give information about its 2015 Nintendo World Championships, which will be held during the expo. The event, which is happening 25 years after the Nintendo World Championships in 1990, will feature 16 of the best Nintendo players coming together to compete.

Today, Nintendo announced that the original Legend of Zelda will be one of the games that the 16 finalists will be competing in. Nintendo isn't quite ready to reveal how players will be competing in the classic, instead instructing us to stay tuned during the event, but it would make sense for it to be some sort of speed run or off-the-wall challenge like what is present in NES Remix.

The Nintendo World Championships 2015 are set to take place at 3 p.m. Pacific on Sunday, June 14 in Los Angeles. Also that week, Nintendo is hosting its annual Digital Event on Tuesday, June 16, where it is expected to deliver lots of new information about its upcoming titles.
