Nintendo are unleashing their new console on New Zealand this week, ushering in the start of the next generation. Will it do for games and gaming what the Wii did way back in 2006? Will it help Nintendo secure a stronger foothold in New Zealand, a country in which big N has traditionally struggled to gain mindshare?
The end of such speculation and conjecture is near as, from Friday, gamers everywhere will be able to pick one up and figure out the answers to those questions (and, likely, many more) for themselves.
The system doesn't release by itself, of course, as you can see from the huge list below. There's a range of titles on offer, from the predictable family and party games, to some new Nintendo first-party material and a slew of updated versions of games we've already seen on other platforms. There's some brand new stuff, too, arguably lead by Ubisoft's impressive-looking ZombiU.
As to which will hit and which will miss, keep an eye on the site over the next couple of weeks, as we bring you all of the coverage we can for the first new console system in nearly six years.
That's not all, believe it or not, as this week also sees the debut of Far Cry 3 - a game that has been universally impressing critics overseas. If you like the sound of a lush, open-world, crazed first-person shooter, sounds like you'll be well served by it - we'll have our own verdict on the game soon.
