The 20-year-old is relishing the chance to face the world champions on 24 November at the Millennium Stadium - but admits it will need a mammoth performance to overcome the tourists.
North said: "I saw the highlights of their game against Australia.
"It looked like a great game. It was 18-all and New Zealand were going for a record number of wins and that kind of sets the standard.
"If those two can battle for 80 minutes and it comes down to a drop-goal, I think that's the standard we have got to try and compete at if we want to be top three in the world."
North, who shone during Wales' agonising 3-0 Test series defeat to Australia in the summer, added: "Every team has got its negative points where you can beat them. When it comes to the game you have just got to play what you see.
"If they look at us, they can see ways they can beat us but I'm sure we will sit down, analyse their game and work out different ways of having a crack at them."
