NES Remix Time Attack Contest Cancelled

Posted January 6, 2014 by Felisha "Nightingale" Silva in News

For those of you who don’t know, Nintendo was holding a contest for their latest downloadable game on the Wii U, NES Remix. The contest was that of a time attack, where players tried to get through the game in the least amount of time. Well, unfortunately, the contest has been cancelled due to people ‘cheating’. Apparently, it had to do with a few players pausing the game repeatedly, which causes a small lag between the gameplay and the clock, hence cutting their play-through time down little by little. If the contest would have continued, the winner would have had their run recorded officially by Nintendo themselves.

The game’s creator, Koichi Hayashida, apologized via Miiverse, stating:

In the interest of being as fair as possible, we decided to terminate the event without recognizing the fastest time. We sincerely apologize for this matter, particularly because the vast majority of people played fairly.

There’s always got to be someone to ruin all the fun, and this is why we can’t have nice things, people.
