Nintendo Labo Are Cardboard Peripherals For Your Switch, And It's So Nintendo

Nintendo Labo “build-and-play” kits revealed for Nintendo Switch

With Nintendo's Labo, you'll be using cardboard to make connected accessories for the Nintendo Switch, essentially working with a Do It Yourself mentality to make extra bits and pieces for the Nintendo's latest portable console. These include the Robot Kit (players can build their own cardboard robot) and the Variety Kit (including an RC vehicle, a piano, a fishing rod, a house, and a motorbike), but the announcement trailer for the Labo hinted at several future Toy-Cons kits too.

When the keys are played musical notes can be heard from the console. As you can see in the photo above, courtesy of Nintendo, you are suited up with a robot pack with straps around your feet that seem to dictate the movement in a robot game. None of these peripherals are mentioned on the Nintendo Labo website and they aren't listed as Toy-Cons that can be made with the Variety or Robot Kits, either. Catch one of many exotic fish shown swimming on the Nintendo Switch screen by casting your Fishing Rod and unwinding the reel to lower the hook.

Nintendo Labo, which goes on sale in Europe on April 27, is a continuation of the game design philosophy that the firm debuted with 1-2-Switch.

If you thought Minecraft was the best thing for kids on the Switch, get ready for Nintendo to (once again) blow your mind.

The Labo kits come out this April and start at $69.99. These are put together to make a fishing rod, or a house, or a motorbike, or a piano- Hell, there's a lot that the Labo can turn into!

The new toy kits are priced at $70-$80, and have the potential to become another source of high-margin revenue to help Nintendo's bottom line. A special customization set, sold separately, will give kids a chance to decorate their creations via coloured tape, stencils, and stickers.

Looks cool, right? The real-world Do It Yourself (DIY) element brings a level of creativity to video games that is innovative in a retro way. Each differently shaped block is detected by the IR Motion Camera on the Right Joy-Con inserted on top of the House.

Nintendo has also developed a wearable, cardboard robot suit that allows the user to fight against UFOs on a TV screen when it is linked up to the Switch console. These unique creations, being called Toy-cons can be anything from a piano, to a motorbike, a robot and more. "I personally hope to see many people enjoy making kits with their family members, with big smiles on their faces".
