Teaming with Nintendo for the experience, the new addition uses its handheld Switch device, along with a series of cardboard DIY kits crafted to work with the console. In the workshop, visitors will "make, play and discover" as they using the Switch, learning how the technology shapes ideas into reality.

"The Nintendo Labo Workshop is designed to inspire creative minds and playful hearts alike," said Nicolas Wegnez, general manager for Nintendo UK.
