Nintendo brings virtual reality to the Switch with its new Labo kit

Nintendo brings virtual reality to the Switch with its new Labo kit”

Nintendo has revealed a virtual reality headset based around its Labo line of cardboard gaming accessories for the Switch gaming console.

There's cheaper versions available, such as a starter set which includes just the goggles and blaster for only $39.99. The first set includes the elephant and the camera, while the second contains the wind pedal and the bird.

Nintendo Labo kits consist of pre-made cardboard cutouts that gamers must assemble in order to experience the product's software. There are a pair of expansion sets priced at $20 each for those who want to upgrade from the starter pack. 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.

On the other hand, demands for VR compatible versions of beloved games such as Pokémon Snap could provide a lucrative new direction for the Switch, already a record-setting device for Nintendo.

The main Labo VR Kit includes six different VR Toy-Con projects to build, including the Toy-Con VR Goggles, which are required to use all the other creations. Emily Rogers reported that Nintendo was preparing VR features for " a small, select number of traditional first-party software titles", and GoNintendo reported later that day that Nintendo Labo would be the first.

Nintendo said in a statement: "With the new Nintendo Labo VR Kit, there's more to Make, Play, and Discover together than ever before".

Two expansion sets, comprising the Elephant, Camera, Bird and Wind Pedal Toy-Con projects, will also be available for $19.99 each.

Nintendo Labo Toy-Con 04: What is it? A full Toy-Con 04 VR Kit, including all extras, will retail for $79.99.
