The Nintendo Switch Is Getting A VR Labo Kit

The new Toy-Con-as Labo kits are called-launches on April 12, and includes new minigames as well as additional physical cardboard to make the VR headset.

On Wednesday night, Nintendo announced its Nintendo Labo: VR Kit, the fourth in its Labo series of DIY Switch accessories, and the first to bring what Nintendo is calling "basic VR technology" to the platform. 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. Owners of the latter can pick up the two VR Kit expansions for $20 each. Nintendo Labo: VR Kit offers six new Toy-Con creations to build, including the Toy-Con VR Goggles, which combine with the other creations, encouraging players to use natural movements and gestures to interact with the gaming world and elevating the Nintendo Labo gameplay experience. "We wanted to design an experience that encourages both virtual and real-world interactions among players through passing around Toy-Con creations".

Nintendo's two Labo VR sets will be available in the United States from April 12, 2019, with releases in the UK and Australia expected to arrive around the same time. Along with that, users can turn off the VR functionality and use the screen holder and cap in 2D mode.

"With the new Nintendo Labo VR Kit, there's more to Make, Play, and Discover together than ever before", the official website reads. One includes all Toy-Con creations and the other is a smaller, introductory kit.

It's actually just "Labo VR Kit". Those looking to get their feet wet can begin with the Starter Set, which includes the VR Goggles as well as a Blaster, for $39.99.

Don't, however, plan to start playing Nintendo's existing blockbusters like Super Mario Odyssey or The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild in VR now. If you buy the cheaper package, you can also buy the camera and elephant as one expansion or the bird and wind pedal in another.
