Are you Britain's best Nintendo gamer?

Platform holder searching for the greatest - with big prizes

So you reckon you're pretty good at Nintendo games, huh? Well now's your chance to prove it: The hunt is on to find Britain's Best Nintendo Gamer.

GAME and Gamestation stores country-wide are holding Nintendo-sponsored competitions on New Super Mario Bros Wii - and there are epic prizes up for grabs.

These include a year's-worth of new Nintendo games, brand new 3DS handhelds and a holiday to New York.

Did you notice the words '3DS handhelds' there? We know. Amazing.

If you reckon you've got what it takes, visit your nearest participating GAME or Gamestation, where you'll do battle with another hopeful allocated at random.

You'll be playing New Super Mario Bros Wii'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 16 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 be the ones winning an incredible holiday for four to New York.

Think you've got what it takes to do Mario and 007 justice? Better start practising.
