Nintendo will be expanding their line of Labo kits this year with a launch of new products that will bring in a unique first VR experience that kids and families can build themselves!
Available on April 12, the Nintendo Labo: VR Kit will add a whole new dimension to the Nintendo Labo experience. Combining the innovative physical and digital gameplay of Nintendo Labo with basic virtual reality technology, the Nintendo Labo: VR Kit works with the Nintendo Switch system to create a variety of fun and easily shareable experiences that families can enjoy together – including everything from an alien invasion to in-game ocean photography and much more.
Like their previous Labo products, the Nintendo Labo: VR kit brings in a unique interactive experience by having its players build kits that would allow them to interact with the virtual world through imaginative real-world actions. Fend off an alien invasion with the Toy-Con Blaster, visit a colorful in-game ocean and snap photos of the sea life with the Toy-Con Camera and so much more.
Nintendo Labo: VR Kit encourages passing around the Toy-Con creations among a group of people so everyone in the room can easily join in on the fun. To help encourage this social gameplay, players simply slip the Nintendo Switch console into the Toy-Con VR Goggles and hold it up to their eyes to explore numerous games and experiences – no head strap needed.
Available at a suggested retail price of $79.99, the complete Nintendo Labo: VR Kit includes the Nintendo Switch software and materials to build all six Toy-Con projects – the Toy-Con VR Goggles, Toy-Con Blaster, Toy-Con Camera, Toy-Con Bird, Toy-Con Wind Pedal and Toy-Con Elephant – as well as a Screen Holder and Safety Cap. It’s a good option for kids and families who want to dive into the full experience.
Starter Set + Blaster: Available at a suggested retail price of only $39.99, 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. The Starter Set is a great entry point into the world of Nintendo Labo VR.
There will also be an expansion pack available that will expand the player’s experience. This expansion includes the Toy-Con Elephant and Toy-Con Camera. A second expansion includes the Toy-Con Wind Pedal and Toy-Con Bird. Both will be priced at $19.99.
