"With each Nintendo Labo kit, kids can transform modular sheets of cardboard - specially created to interact with the Nintendo Switch console and Joy-Con controllers - into creations called Toy-Con", said Nintendo.
You see, this isn't just any cardboard.
KitGuru Says: The Nintendo Labo kits are aimed at inspiring creativity in children, which seems like a worthy cause. Now, Nintendo is dropping the toy part and selling kids the box - or at least cardboard that can be built into creations such as a 13-key piano, fishing pole, and motorbike. "Nintendo Labo invites anyone with a creative mind and a playful heart to make, play and discover in new ways with Nintendo Switch". Lost Sphear, the new game from RPG Factory, is among the first new games coming to Nintendo Switch in 201, and it delivers just that. Each differently shaped block is detected by the IR Motion Camera on the Right Joy-Con inserted on top of the House. Instructions on how to create the accessories, which Nintendo has named Toy-Cons, appear on the Switch's screen.
Lastly, Nintendo will release the new neon green and pink Joy-Con controllers on January 28. "It is an exciting evolution of the Nintendo Switch platform - one created to inspire curiosity, creativity and imagination in people of all ages".
Nintendo Labo is one of their most unique ideas yet.What is Nintendo Switch Labo?
That gun peripheral is decidedly less kid-friendly than the other Toy-Con models, but it could be used for ports of first-person shooter games.
Once you've built them, all you have to do is add the Nintendo Switch's various components and you've got yourself a brand-new creation.
Nintendo Labo's Variety Kit and Robot Kit will release on April 20, 2018 in the U.S., and April 27, 2018 in Europe for the Switch. Because both kits need the Nintendo Switch to become interactive, count on buying the Nintendo Switch if you don't already have one.
As far as purchasing these Toy Cons there will be two separate bundles sold, the Variety Kit which is $70.00 and the Robot Kit which is $80.00. Containing stencils, stickers, and decorative tape, the Customisation Set has an MSRP of $14.95 AUD.
For example, you can plug the console's controllers into the auto, and it will move around thanks to the controllers' vibrations, responding to users' input from the Switch's touchscreen. Turn your Joy-Cons into a working RC auto.
But hey, when it does, expect to see Nintendo's insane cardboard concept at video game retailers across the country, where it will carry price tags not unlike other video games, and a pile of cardboard and instructions on the inside, too. Pressing the ignition button starts the engine, while twisting the right handle activates the throttle.
