Nintendo UK will be giving a select few fans the chance to go hands-on with the Switch this month via a series of special events around the country.

Not only will these lucky individuals get the chance to lovingly fondle Nintendo's new home system, they'll also be able to play The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, Splatoon 2, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, ARMS, 1-2-Switch and Snipperclips.

The events take place in Birmingham, Manchester and London, with four two-hour sessions across three days. As you can imagine, space is limited, so applications are limited to two per-person. If you're interested in attending then head over to the Eventbrite pages linked in the city headers below - pick your desired location and get your tickets.
