Nintendo Switch is getting a Labo virtual reality kit

The Nintendo Switch Is Getting A VR Labo Kit

VR Kit is the fourth entry in the Labo line of Switch games that come with cardboard accessories you assemble yourself using interactive instructions that come on the game cart.

Becoming available on April 12th, the new VR kits "encourage both virtual and real-world interactions among players through passing around Toy-Con creations." according to a statement from Doug Bowser, soon-to-be Nintendo's President for North America. While we're waiting to find out exactly how quickly our arms get exhausted, another fascinating question will be how engrossing an experience be with the Toy-Con VR goggles pressed up against the Switch's 720p, 60 fps display. Nintendo is calling the VR Kit "a unique first VR experience kids and families can build themselves".

These new Labo sets - a starter package with a blaster to build, an expansion kit with a camera and an "elephant", and another featuring a bird and wind pedal to build - will release on 12 April. We've already seen Mario game discounts through the North American My Nintendo site and double reward points offers in Europe, and now even more savings are on the way. The Starter Set, meanwhile, will be priced at $39.99 and include the Toy-Con VR Goggles and Toy-Con Blaster.

Using it to turn the Switch into a handheld VR headset is such an obvious idea it kind of makes me want to kick myself for not considering it before this.

Instead, users hold it up to their eyes with one hand and control games with the other.

Nintendo Labo Toy-Con 04: What is it?

The VR Kits for Nintendo Switch will be available on 12 April and cost $79.99 and $39.99 respectively (we're still waiting for United Kingdom prices).

The Nintendo Labo: VR Kit offers a rather unconventional way of experiencing VR, one tailored especially for kids.

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.

You can check out the available kits in the gallery below.
