Nintendo UK Community Calendar: May

Be they focused on a single game or a celebration of many, independent Nintendo community events are happening all around the UK every week offering great places to enjoy games on Nintendo Switch and Nintendo 3DS family systems while meeting and playing with like-minded Nintendo fans of all ages.

Whether you’re looking for fellow Grizzco employees for some Splatoon 2 action, enjoy testing your battle strategies in Pokémon Ultra Sun and Pokémon Ultra Moon, or simply want to share the love for your current favourite game, the events posted below are all hosted by trusted friends of Nintendo UK so you'll be sure to meet plenty of friendly faces!

With Nintendo Labo now launched, some groups are even exploring the unique games they can concoct while making, playing and discovering with local Nintendo fans. Just check out these race tracks that are already testing Toy-Con RC Cars in Basingstoke and Norwich:
