Nintendo Switch goes VR via upcoming Labo VR Kits

The Nintendo Switch Is Getting A VR Labo Kit

The Nintendo Labo VR Kit launches next month in all regions.

Nintendo is adding new virtual reality kits to its lineup of cardboard Labo accessories for the Switch, doubling down on the surprising initiative first announced a year ago. One comes with a Camera and an Elephant, while the other includes a Bird and a Wind Pedal. 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. The Labo certainly makes sense as a first step, but personally I'm one for instant gratification and hearing how long some of these Labo kits take to build really turns me off. Do you want to see Nintendo get more into the virtual reality business?

Meanwhile, a $49.99 Starter Set offers the Labo Switch software, components to build the Toy-Con VR Goggles and Toy-Con Blaster and Screen Holder and Safety Cap.

You might be asking "What IS Nintendo Labo?".

The software bundled with the kit features games, detailed instructions, and the "garage" mode Nintendo introduced earlier, The Verge reported. Some of the most widespread VR use come from Google's Cardboard after all, cheap constructions which you slot your phone into.

The shares of Nintendo were down 1 percent in early trading in Tokyo, erasing some losses after the announcement. Unless you're a creator, Labo is fun while you're building it, and the games are fun for about ten minutes each - but what you're generally left with is a cupboard full of cardboard monstrosities.
