Nintendo has just announced that it will bring a new Nintendo Labo kit to the Nintendo Switch. This time, the cardboard kit will be to create a VR glasses to the Big N hybrid console, bringing virtual reality experiences for the first time to the device.
The Nintendo Labo: VR Kit will arrive on April 12 with varying prices. The complete kit, which comes with the goggles and other six packs of Nintendo Labo, will cost $ 79.99 (about $ 310, no fees and taxes). However, a starter kit will also be marketed, bringing Labo with the VR glasses and a single kit for $ 39.99 (about $ 160). Check out:
Complementing the initial package, which is cheaper, there will also be two expansions for $ 19.99 each (about $ 80). Among the kits are a spear-missile gun, a camera, a bird, a pedal and an elephant. Nintendo revealed that the Toy-Con Garage (last year’s creation kit) will act as a programming workshop for the tool, but has not specified how to date.
Although it seems Nintendo’s entry into the virtual reality universe, similar to what Google Cardboard did with smartphones, Labo’s VR will probably be unique to Labo’s own experiences – although it certainly opens doors for developers to create VR experiences to the Switch.
Nintendo Labo VR will hit the market on April 12, 2019. So what do you think?
