Switch UK tour.jpg

Earlier this week Nintendo of America announced its Summer of Play tour, which will take a broad range of Switch and 3DS games around the US. Now Nintendo UK has confirmed its own tour specifically for the Switch, starting in June and running right up to December.

Unlike the US equivalent, however, this UK tour is only confirmed (so far) to showcase two games - Mario Kart 8 Deluxe and 1-2-Switch. It's a pity that there's no extended range of demos, but in any case the dates and locations are below; in all cases the event will run from 9am to 5pm local time.
