Nintendo have announced their full plans for June's E3 event, including a Nintendo Direct broadcast, live-streamed events straight from the show in Los Angeles and the return of an old favourite.

After 25 years the Nintendo World Championships are being brought back to find out who is the best Nintendo gamer in the world, and none other than Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime will be competing.

They announced the details with a video which you can watch below.

The Championships will take place on Sunday 14 June, with their Nintendo Direct broadcast taking place on Tuesday 16 June at 5pm BST / 9am PT. Mario Maker will also be available for people to play in Best Buy stores across the US during the week of E3.

The Nintendo World Championships first took place in 1990, with competitors playing a series of games in the hope of being named overall champion in their particular age bracket.

In a statement Nintnedo said: "Nintendo of America will host qualifying tournaments for the Nintendo World Championships, which were last seen in 1990. The winners from regional events across the USA, plus competitors invited by Nintendo of America, will meet on June 14th, at the Nokia Theatre LA live in Los Angeles for a multi-round Nintendo game competition.

"In the end, one player will be crowned the 2015 Nintendo World Champion. Fans in Los Angeles will have the opportunity to attend the tournament, while others at home in Europe can watch online."

They did not announce which games are to be included in the competition, but it would seem likely that Wii U titles Mario Kart 8 and Super Smash Bros will be among them.

Star Fox, Mario Maker, Yoshi's Wooly World and Xenoblade Chronicles X are expected to be the company's biggest games on show this year, but unannounced titles are also expected with many hopeful of new games from Retro Studios and Next Level.

Their successful line of Amiibo figurines will also form a significant part of their show.
