  • Nintendo Announces Labo VR Kit: Releasing April 12 - News

Credit: NintendoIn a sudden and unexpected announcement last night (March 6), Nintendo announced a new Labo cardboard kit for the Nintendo Switch that turns it into a virtual reality headset. The first is the standard kit that includes the VR Goggles, Blaster, Camera, Bird, Wind Pedal, and Elephant. The Starter Set, meanwhile, will be priced at $39.99 and include the Toy-Con VR Goggles and Toy-Con Blaster. A full Toy-Con 04 VR Kit, including all extras, will retail for $79.99.

Nintendo is joining Google Cardboard in offering an entry-level, self-assembly VR device.

The Toy-Con 04 VR Kit will launch in the United States on 12 April through Nintendo, though there's now no word on when the set will come to other territories.

The Labo range launched in April 2018 through a Variety Kit and Robot Kit, with a Vehicle Kit following in September. Anyone who purchases the Starter Kit can buy expansions later to upgrade their VR experience.

Nintendo is once again trying its hand at virtual reality, this time with its Switch console and Labo construction platform.

These Toy-Cons utilise the Nintendo Switch console and its Joy-Cons (that's the official name for the Switch's controllers) to create something more than just a console.

As with Cardboard the Labo VR Kit won't have you strapping anything to your face, and you likely won't be playing AAA titles.

Nintendo then released the Vehicle Kit that allowed gamers to construct a Wheel to control trucks and cars - complete with working foot pedal - and an apparatus to control an airplane.

This is hardly PlayStation VR, but like Nintendo's other Labo demos, it looks like the aim is more around building out a fun concept rather than seriously engaging with a new form factor or gameplay mechanic.

You might be asking "What IS Nintendo Labo?".

The kit will launch on April 12. Let us know in the comments section below.
