Nintendo Labo Features

You find the heart of a game in some surprising places. Take a typical Sakurai joint, which might nominally be about scrapping across large arenas and trying to knock your opponent off the screen. That's not what Smash is about, though - its real heart is in the menus, in their abundance and splendour and their hearty, generous and colourful spill. Play a game like Diablo and it's not so much about what happens when you're crushing skulls - it's about the screen where you're optimising your character so that they might crush skulls in the most efficient way possible.

A streaming service that brought together the best in kids TV - so you'd always have an episode of In The Night Garden to hand through your favourite Nintendo device?
