Nintendo Switch goes VR via upcoming Labo VR Kits

Nintendo Announces Labo VR Kit: Releasing April 12 - News

Whether this is the only move on its return to the platform is naturally unknown, but whether we get a fuller Nintendo VR experience in the future could depend on the adoption of this Labo kit.

The Nintendo Switch is finally set to receive virtual reality powers, with the Japanese gaming giant announcing a Labo kit designed for the console. Along with containing more cardboard to clutter your house, this new kit confirms the rumors that VR will be coming to the Switch.

Nintendo Labo: VR Kit ($79.99): The complete Nintendo Labo: VR Kit includes Switch software and materials to build all six Toy-Con projects - the Toy-Con VR Goggles, Toy-Con Blaster, Toy-Con Camera, Toy-Con Bird, Toy-Con Wind Pedal and Toy-Con Elephant - as well as a Screen Holder and Safety Cap. Purchasers of the starter pack can buy the other kits for $19.99/$24.99 (Elephant+Camera, Wind Pedal+Toy Bird). The project marks Nintendo's first foray into the world of virtual reality since the release of the much-maligned Virtual Boy in 1995.

Nintendo's VR headset doesn't require a strap-on to stay affixed.

Interested players can purchase the Nintendo Labo VR Kit starting April 12th. "We wanted to design an experience that encourages both virtual and real-world interactions among players through passing around Toy-Con creations".

Switch owners familiar with Labo's Toy-Con Garage mode will be able to experiment with the software's programming tools and take advantage of the additional accessories to make their own custom games and programs. If the majority of these kits will seem a little too heavy on your wallet initially, there's also a starter kit that only comes bundled with the VR goggles and blaster. It's a good option for kids and families who want to dive in to the full experience.

The VR kit will be available in North America on April 12.

Note that this is just a virtual reality set for the Labo, this won't suddenly let you play Breath of the Wild in VR.
