The hunt is on to find the country's top Nintendo Gamer, with a year's new games, brand new 3DS handhelds and a holiday to New York all up for grabs.
Fancy your chances? Visit your nearest participating Game or Gamestation store on the date shown below. You'll do battle with another hopeful allocated at random, playing New Super Mario Bros Wii.
You'll be playing the game's 'Coin Battle' mode across levels: 0-2, 0-5 and 8-7. The highest combined coin score across the three levels wins.
The top scoring gamer and runner up from each participating store will bag themselves all-new first-party Wii releases for a year and a cutting-edge Nintendo 3DS the moment the new handheld launches in the UK.
The sixteen finalists will then go through to a Grand Final held in London on 23rd October, where players will shoot it out on the all-new GoldenEye 007 on Wii.
The overall winner will be crowned at the prestigious Golden Joystick Awards ceremony in London, accompanied by family or friends. They'll also win an incredible holiday for four to New York. Awesome!
Think you've got what it takes to do Mario and 007 justice? Better start practising now...
