Nintendo Labo VR Kit Announced; Launches Next Month

Nintendo Announces Labo VR Kit: Releasing April 12 - News

VR Kit will make its debut on April 12, 2019. 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. Personally, I'm wondering if the goggles will have as distinctive and memorable a smell as the Virtual Boy, and somewhere I'm sure my dad is delighted he can just buy a bunch of cardboard instead of renting us an entire headset at Blockbuster.

The Nintendo Labo VR Kit is releasing on April 12th and it will be available in two different configurations. Along with containing more cardboard to clutter your house, this new kit confirms the rumors that VR will be coming to the Switch. 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. The new Toy-Con VR Goggles can be combined with the other Toy-Con creations, and used for real-world actions.

The shares of Nintendo were down 1 percent in early trading in Tokyo, erasing some losses after the announcement. 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.

The six separate VR Toy-Con projects include the VR Goggles, Blaster, Camera, Elephant, Bird, and Wind Pedal.

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

In The US, the VR Kit is priced at $80, while the Starter Set + Blaster kit goes for $40.

Now, of course, since this is a Labo-based set, it does just mean that Nintendo is developing software specifically around the cardboard kit; you're not suddenly going to playing Mario Kart 8 or The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild if you pick up the cardboard kit.
