New Nintendo Labo Kit Goes VR

Nintendo has just revealed its new virtual reality (VR) kit through the company’s innovative yet quirky Nintendo Labo lineup. The kit isn’t as sophisticated as the PlayStation VR but more basic to create a simple and shareable virtual reality experience for the whole family.

Nintendo Labo: VR Kit is the fourth kit to be released as part of the Labo lineup to date, with the tools to make DIY cardboard creations called Toy-Cons, play a variety of games with these creations, and discover how Nintendo Switch technology brings it all to life.

The new kit offers six new Toy-Con creations, including the Toy-Con VR Goggles, which can be combined with the other creations, allowing players to interact with the virtual world through imaginative real-world actions. Fend off an alien invasion with the Toy-Con Blaster, visit a colourful in-game ocean and snap photos of sea life with the Toy-Con Camera, and so much more.

Nintendo promotes the sharing of Toy-Con creations so that everyone can 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 funky headbands needed.

Nintendo of America Sales and Marketing Senior Vice President Doug Bowser said:

“This new kit builds on the core tenets of Nintendo Labo – Make, Play and Discover – to introduce virtual reality in a way that’s fun and approachable for both kids and kids at heart”.

He added that ‘they wanted to design an experience that encourages both virtual and real-world interactions among players through passing around Toy-Con creations.’

Nintendo Labo: VR Kit will launch in retail stores with two primary configurations, one that includes all Toy-Con creations and another that includes a smaller selection of projects to get started:

  • Nintendo Labo: VR Kit: The complete VR kit. Includes the Toy-Con VR Goggles, Toy-Con Blaster, Toy-Con Camera, Toy-Con Bird, Toy-Con Wind Pedal and Toy-Con Elephant.
  • Nintendo Labo: VR Kit – Starter Set + Blaster: Includes the Toy-Con VR Goggles and Toy-Con Blaster.

The complete VR kit will be priced at $79.99 (RM326) while the Starter Set is priced at only $39.99 (RM163). Both of these kits will also include a Screen Holder and Safety Cap.

Those who own the Starter Set and is looking to expand their horizons can purchase the following optional expansion kits.

  • Expansion Kit 1: Includes the Toy-Con Elephant and Toy-Con Camera.
  • Expansion Kit 2: Includes the Toy-Con Wind Pedal and Toy-Con Bird.

Both expansion kits will come at a price of $19.99 (RM81), and will only be sold exclusively online on the Nintendo online store.

The inventive Toy-Con Garage mode, which is part of all Nintendo Labo software, returns with Nintendo Labo: VR Kit, offering basic programming tools for players to experiment with.

The Nintendo Labo: VR Kit – Starter Set + Blaster and complete Nintendo Labo: VR Kit will be available in stores on 12 April 2019.
