Disney XD to Re-Air This Year’s Nintendo World Championships

Disney XD has revealed that they’ll be showing the Nintendo World Championships in a programming update for this September.

According to the update, the airing of the Nintendo World Championships that took place at E3 will be re-aired on Wednesday, September 16 on Disney XD. While it’s great that the competition will get some big exposure what’s puzzling is how Disney plans to fit that into a time slot that is only scheduled for 3o mins.

The program is listed as follows:

Wednesday, September 16
Original Series – Episode Premiere
Disney XD Special “Nintendo World Championships 2015”
(8:00 PM – 8:30 PM ET/PT)
Sixteen of the World’s most skilled gamers compete live onstage in games from Nintendo’s past, present and future.

It’s going to be very interesting to see how this one turns out. If they are showing the whole competition it could very well run into the morning on Thursday. If they’ve cut it down there’s going to be a lot of competition missing from the show to fit it in such a tiny spot. Guess we’ll have to wait until September 16 to see how Disney plans to pull this one off.
