CNET’s article has been updated, their report was apparently incorrect:
A previous version of this story said Nintendo plans to hold its World Championship next year. This is incorrect; Nintendo has yet to say whether it plans to hold another World Championship in the future.
Josh Thomas, our gaming friend from The Bit Block, got some insider information at E3 and has confirmed that Nintendo plans to use their Digital Event puppets made by The Jim Henson Company in other future video projects.
I *think* I’m allowed to say this, Nintendo has plans on using those Puppets in future video projects beyond E3. Which is very very cool!

In addition, according to a report from CNET, the Nintendo World Championships will once again be held next year, which isn’t a surprise considering this year’s success. The outlet apparently heard about these plans straight from Nintendo.
