Nintendo Announces Labo VR Kit: Releasing April 12 - News

Curiously, there doesn't appear to be any gameplay footage of the Labo VR Kit's games.

The new Nintendo Labo VR kits will be available in North America starting 12 April.

To use the Toy-Con VR Goggles, insert the Switch console and hold it up to your eyes to explore "numerous games and experiences", without a head strap. Expansion Set 1 will include a Toy-Con Camera and Toy-Con Elephant. VR Kit will be available at a suggested retail price of $79.99 and includes materials to build all six Toy-Con projects - the Toy-Con VR Goggles, Toy-Con Blaster, Toy-Con Camera, Toy-Con Bird, Toy-Con Wind Pedal and Toy-Con Elephant - as well as a Screen Holder and Safety Cap.

Nintendo Labo: VR Kit - Expansion Set 2**: Expansion Set 2 includes the Toy-Con Wind Pedal and Toy-Con Bird.

On that note, you can slowly add the rest of the Toy-Cons to your arsenal, thanks to Nintendo also releasing two expansion kits.

Nintendo Labo: VR Kit offers six new Toy-Con creations to build, including the Toy-Con VR Goggles, which combine with the other creations to allow players to interact with the virtual world through imaginative real-world actions.

Switch owners familiar with Labo's Toy-Con Garage mode will be able to experiment with the software's programming tools and take advantage of the additional accessories to make their own custom games and programs.

Interested players can purchase the Nintendo Labo VR Kit starting April 12th. One includes all Toy-Con creations and the other is a smaller, introductory kit. "VR Kit is a unique first VR experience kids and families can build themselves!" If it's something that you and the family enjoy, Expansion Sets will be sold separately for $20 each.

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.
