One bucketful of stories has dominated the news this week. And that's the gaming joy rained down upon us by Apple’s September 2016 keynote.
The iPhone 7 was unveiled as expected, sans headphone jack, but the mobile giant also welcomed Nintendo legend Shigeru Miyamoto to the podium to reveal a fresh take on Super Mario. We knew that Nintendo characters were making their way to mobile, but this elevated it to a whole new level. An announcement doesn't come much bigger than that in our world.
But is this auto-runner signal a major positive shift for mobile gamers? Or will it be "the death of Nintendo"? We've spent all week stroking our chins and hiking the news trail, and here are all the stories we've run in one handy list:
