I don't know about you, but a world in which Knack outsells a Tokyo EAD Mario isn't a world I want to be a part of. But before I hire some plumber to come round and jump on my head until my skull cracks, let's try to right some wrongs by showing Super Mario 3D World some of the love it deserves.

Ian Higton's going to be playing it from 5pm GMT, and it's well worth a look if you want to see why exactly we awarded it top marks - and why I think it's well worth you picking up a Wii U for, if you haven't yet converted to Nintendo's strange, brilliant and sadly unloved console.

Sometimes we include links to online retail stores. If you click on one and make a purchase we may receive a small commission. For more information, go here.
