Nintendo Labo goes VR with upcoming kit

The Nintendo Switch Is Getting A VR Labo Kit

And, from April 12, Labo will also provide the gateway to VR for owners of the Switch.

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. The basic starter kit includes the VR goggles and blaster sets. 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.

The remaining four Toy-Con projects from the VR Kit will be available through Nintendo.com as "Expansion Set 1" (Toy-Con Elephant and Toy-Con Camera) and "Expansion Set 2" (Toy-Con Wind Pedal and Toy-Con Bird) for $19.99 apiece.

Nintendo Labo is a great, great time for, like, two weeks or so. You can then purchase expansions, which include two more Toy-Cons per kit, for $20 each.

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.

Nintendo's VR headset doesn't require a strap-on to stay affixed.

The Toy-Con 04 VR Kit will launch in the U.S. on 12 April through Nintendo, though there's now no word on when the set will come to other territories.

Six new Toy-Con kits are being introduced: VR Goggles, Blaster, Camera, Elephant, Bird, and Wind Pedal.

However, what this does hint at is Nintendo's belief in VR.

The Toy-Con Garage feature will be making a return in the VR kit, which could lead to some seriously awesome creations.

The announcement was made through Nintendo of America's official Twitter account.

The Nintendo Switch already felt like the best part of a VR experience thanks to the wizardry of the Joy-Con controllers in some games, but now it's going full VR. There isn't any cost difference to buying things separately, so I could see grabbing the starter bundle before plunking down the extra cash on the full kit and kaboodle. Between Sunday, March 10, and Saturday, March 16, anyone outside the Mushroom Kingdom can purchase select Nintendo Switch systems and one of five select games starring Mario for a suggested retail price of only $329.98.
