Cranky Twitter

With a global business as large as Nintendo's, we're more than used to variations between Nintendo of America, Nintendo of Europe — itself split into smaller divisions — and Nintendo Japan. We also have Nintendo Australia, of course, and that group has now joined its contemporaries in hitting up the biggest social networks.

It's taken a while for these accounts to get formally up and running, but there are two official options that will give the latest Wii U and 3DS game news for both Australia and New Zealand — you can follow and like the official Twitter and Facebook pages.

If you're in New Zealand or Australia it's certainly worth keeping an eye on these accounts during what will surely be a busy 2014.
