Nintendo Announces Labo VR Kit For Switch

Nintendo Announces Labo VR Kit For Switch

The mistake was the result of an editor (hi) misreading the press release (sorry Ali!) and we sure do regret the error.

A brand-new Nintendo Labo kit has been announced by Nintendo, bringing VR experiences to the Nintendo Switch; say "hello" to Nintendo Labo Toy-Con 04: VR Kit!

If you thought Nintendo was done pairing its cardboard Labo accessories with its hybrid Switch console, you're in for a surprise. But by pairing a seemingly less intensive VR experience with its cardboard DIY accessories, the company may have discovered a way to circumvent the hefty processing requirements associated with today's VR-capable machines. Fend off an alien invasion with the Toy-Con Blaster, visit a colourful in-game ocean and snap photos of the sea life with the Toy-Con Camera, and so much more.

Nintendo Labo: VR Kit - Starter Set + Blaster: The Starter Set includes the Nintendo Switch software, plus all the components to build the Toy-Con VR Goggles and Toy-Con Blaster, as well as the Screen Holder and Safety Cap.

Incoming Nintendo of America president Doug Bowser said, "We wanted to design an experience that encourages both virtual and real-world interactions among players through passing around Toy-Con creations".

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer Makes Brilliant Joke At Liverpool Expense
Solskjaer admitted after the draw that he would be surprised if Rashford plays against Crystal Palace on Wednesday. David de Gea says that Manchester United against Liverpool is "the biggest game in England".

The new Toy-Con is available in two configurations: the complete VR Kit set includes the Switch software and materials to build all six Labo VR projects-VR Goggles, Blaster, Camera, Bird, Wind Pedal, and Elephant.

Those who purchase the Starter Set can expand the experience with two additional options.

Interested players can purchase the Nintendo Labo VR Kit starting April 12th.

Note that this is just a virtual reality set for the Labo, this won't suddenly let you play Breath of the Wild in VR. Expansion Set 1 will include a Toy-Con Camera and Toy-Con Elephant. A smaller Labo: VR Starter Set + Blaster will include the VR Goggles and Blaster Toy-Con, and sell for $39.99. So far the Labo toys have been a rewarding - if time consuming - investment, and it will be interesting to see if the trend continues next month.
