Nintendo finally brings VR to the Switch

Share

The Labo VR Kit will include six "Toy-Con" projects that users can build, including "Toy-Con VR Goggles" which use the Switch console as a screen.

The VR Kits for Nintendo Switch will be available on 12 April and cost $79.99 and $39.99 respectively (we're still waiting for United Kingdom prices).

The new VR Kit comes in two packages, with the more expensive $80 option including everything in the lineup: Toy-Con VR Goggles, Blaster, Camera, Bird, Wind Pedal, and Elephant - plus a screen holder, safety cap, and game software.

The video below goes into more detail about the Nintendo Labo process. The suggested retail price for the full VR kit is US$79.99 and the starter kit + blaster set is US$39.99.

Used to transform the portable Switch gaming console into a variety of game-enhancing tools and doodads, the Labo presents a fun-filled time both in the making and, eventually, use of the cardboard gadgets. Anyone who purchases the Starter Kit can buy expansions later to upgrade their VR experience. Including a pair of VR goggles, a blaster, camera, bird, wind pedal, and an elephant.

Prior to its reveal, people were speculating about whether Nintendo would create a VR headset, but it never happened.

The corollary to that view is that Wilson-Raybould had to be moved, somewhere, to set an example, pour encourager les autres . In other words, jobs, even jobs in Quebec, even allegedly 9,000 SNC jobs, are not to be part of a prosecutor's decision.

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 has announced the latest in its line of Nintendo Labo creations - a VR kit for the Nintendo Switch. The five games include "Super Mario Odyssey", "Mario Kart 8 Deluxe", "Super Mario Party", "Mario Tennis Aces", and "New Super Mario Bros".
