Sin & Punishment: Star Successor is a classic: hugely difficult, but a classic nonetheless. Anyone currently honing their best scores may want to take a look at this new official Nintendo competition for North America – sorry, rest of the world! – to prove they're the best.
The challenge asks players to score as highly as possible on the game's third level, using the Remote and Nunchuk. Twin Galaxies International will be handling score verification duties, with the winner receiving a customised plaque, two black Wii Remotes, two black Classic Controller Pros and a pair of Wii Zapper accessories, as well as the chance to feature in next year's Guinness World Records 2011 Gamer's Edition.
The competition kicks off today and lasts until October 6th. Full details are below, and best of luck.

Oh, man, I gotta be in this (but I'll lose miserably)!
Sounds awesome, I never did get my sin & punishment. I had won a copy off of ebay the week the game came out, I never received it and had to get my money back, because of that this game kinda slipped off my radar. My have to pick this up, though I doubt I have a chance of winning
God I hope I don't screw up that boss fight....I'd assume you pretty much have to play on Hard or there's no possible way to score highly enough....and you can't get hit at all. Gonna start practicing tonight--glad Other M's finished so I can give this my full attention
Alrighty, it's time to unleash the awesomeness!
I know I am not winning this, unless they have a prize for being in last place.
ha! i've already got the no.1 score on level 3.... on easy
Wooohooooo!!!! But with wich player or in wich difficulty?
hard mode, no player specified. also, do they mean stage 3 or 2, since 0 is technically the first stage...
oh who cares, im not resident of the USA
@rom - i'd assume 3 (side-scroller-most-of-the-time 3) due to the pics in the competition...it would be good to know for sure though. I'd also assume they mean this stage 3 due to 0 kind of being a tutorial more than a stage.
@everyone - remember to stay standing on solid ground as often as possible, as it gives you points
oh come on! did they really have to choose my worst level
I really need to get this game, this makes it even more tempting.
Level 3? On easy/normal or hard?
EDIT: ****, NA-only, too bad...
If I ever manage to figure out how to get those medals, I might sorta have a chance!
What scores did you guys wind up submitting? I sent in a shade over 68 million, (it was tops on the US leaderboard, but that really doesn't mean anything). Just wondering if I should get my hopes up a little or if somebody put up a better score than me?
