Piano Switch

If building the Nintendo Labo piano seems like it'd be too much hassle, this new piece of software heading to Switch later this week might well come in as a handy alternative.

Simply called Piano, this new app lets you transform your Switch into a mini piano wherever you go. It comes with a free play mode, where you can tinkle the ivories to your heart's content, and also includes nine tutorials of "classic" songs if you happen to be a beginner.

We don't have any footage to share with you sadly, but judging by these screenshots provided by Nintendo, Piano may well be best suited for young, aspiring pianists rather than already-accomplished musicians.

It launches this Friday, 15th May, for £8.09. We're not entirely convinced that it'll be quite sophisticated enough to justify that price just yet, but we'll have to wait until it's in our hands.

Intrigued? If this doesn't seem like your thing, Switch does have plenty of fantastic music and rhythm games.
