It's that time of year again, when we all look back and think about our favourite games of the past 12 months. Official video series Nintendo Minute is naturally joining in, and has kicked off a run of videos that'll work through and award the host's Game of the Year nominees and winners.

In this first video series hosts — Kit and Krysta — run through some of their eShop favourites across Wii U and 3DS, without a bad game in the bunch. If you enjoy having your say, though, the second half of the video introduces a 'match-up' format in which games are randomly drawn together, with fan votes on Twitter determining which titles progress to the next round. Gamers in the US will be entered into a prize sweepstakes for eShop credit, though the video's description outlines the rules.

You can check out this first video below, and it's also stated that in addition to GoTY videos there'll be plenty more Nintendo Minute episodes throughout December; we can only hope that Nintendo's teases of a few more surprises for fans — made through a press release in late November — will be part of what's to come. Keep your eyes peeled here on Nintendo Life, too, as we're gearing up to kick off voting for the Community awards, which will then be handed out — as always — during the Holiday break.
