Nintendo announces Nintendo Labo accessories for Switch consoles
Nintendo introduced Nintendo Labo, a new line of interactive build-and-play experiences. Together with the Nintendo Switch system, the Nintendo Labo kits provide the tools and technology to "make fun DIY creations, play games with your creations and discover how the magic of Nintendo Switch technology shapes ideas into reality." With each Nintendo Labo kit, kids can transform modular sheets of cardboard - specially designed to interact with the Nintendo Switch console and Joy-Con controllers - into creations called Toy-Con. From a piano to a motorbike, a robot and more, each Toy-Con comes to life when combined with Nintendo Switch in different ways. Nintendo Labo launches on April 20 with two kits: the Variety Kit and the Robot Kit. With the Variety Kit, you can create many different Toy-Con, including two Toy-Con RC Cars, a Toy-Con Fishing Rod, a Toy-Con House, a Toy-Con Motorbike and a Toy-Con Piano. With the Robot Kit, you can build an interactive robot suit with a visor, backpack and straps for your hands and feet, which you can then wear to assume control of a giant in-game robot. Both kits include everything you need to assemble your Toy-Con creations, including the building materials and relevant Nintendo Switch software. The Variety Kit will be available at a suggested retail price of $69.99, and the Robot Kit will be available at a suggested retail price of $79.99. A special Customization Set that includes fun stencils, stickers and colored tape will also be available to purchase on April 20 at a suggested retail price of $9.99.
