Nintendo’s Latest Labo Kit Introduces Kids to Virtual Reality

Nintendo Labo receives an all-new exciting VR Kit Virtual Reality for the Nintendo Switch 1

Interested players can purchase the Nintendo Labo VR Kit starting April 12th.

For those who wish to just dip their toe in the virtual water, the more affordable Nintendo Labo: VR Kit - Starter Set + Blaster ($39.99) will be available. The first includes a Toy-Con Elephant and Toy-Con Camera, while the second has a Toy-Con Wind Pedal and Toy-Con Bird.

The kit is a way to "introduce virtual reality in a way that's fun and approachable for both kids and kids at heart", Nintendo of America incoming President Doug Bowser said in a statement. We don't have long to wait to see it in action though, and see how Nintendo VR looks and plays.

The complete Labo: VR Kit will cost $79.99, and include six different "Toy-Con" projects: VR Goggles, Blaster, Camera, Bird, Wind Pedal and Elephant, all of which are made of cardboard.

As with Cardboard the Labo VR Kit won't have you strapping anything to your face, and you likely won't be playing AAA titles.

Blending VR with the barmy DIY cardboard toys matched accessibility with affordable existing tech certainly makes sense. For this year's celebration, Nintendo is offering a special deal on select Mario games for the Nintendo Switch system. Whether this is the only move on its return to the platform is naturally unknown, but whether we get a fuller Nintendo VR experience in the future could depend on the adoption of this Labo kit.

The shares of Nintendo were down 1 percent in early trading in Tokyo, erasing some losses after the announcement. Those buying the cheaper kit will be able to upgrade later, Nintendo has confirmed. Next month, Nintendo will dip its toes into VR for the first time since the ill-fated, migraine-inducing Virtual Boy released in 1995.
