Nintendo Switch hands-on tour heads to the UK

Limited spaces available in Birmingham, Manchester, London.

Nintendo has announced a trio of hands-on opportunities for you to try Switch before its release in the UK.

Events will be held in Birmingham, Manchester and London over the next three weekends.

Zelda: Breath of the Wild, Splatoon 2, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, Arms, 1-2 Switch and Snipperclips will all be available to try.

But spaces are limited, so you'll need to secure a free ticket to ensure a place.

The tour will begin in Birmingham, from Friday 10th to Sunday 12th February.

Manchester will next host the Nintendo Switch, from Friday 17th to Sunday 19th.

The tour will then conclude with three days in London, from Friday 24th to Sunday 26th.

You can sign up for tickets now by picking either Birmingham, Manchester and London then selecting one of the four-hour slots available.

Tickets are limited to two per person. If you're looking to try out the Switch before deciding on a purchase, now's a good time.
