Nintendo Labo VR Kit Announced; Launches Next Month

Nintendo Announces Labo VR Kit: Releasing April 12 - News

Taking to Twitter, the Nintendo of America account revealed the new Nintendo Labo VR kit for the Nintendo Switch.

The Nintendo Labo VR kits are set to arrive on April 12th. The firm has published product pages outlining two new "Simple, Friendly, Fun" cardboard kits that allow children and families to build their own VR gizmos, which will be powered by the Switch console.

The complete Nintendo Labo: VR Kit, priced at $79.99 (roughly £60 / AU$113), comes bundled with VR goggles and software, along with five cardboard sets, including Wind Pedal, Camera, Elephant, Bird and Blaster.

Nintendo Labo: VR Kit - Expansion Set 2**: Available at a suggested retail price of $19.99, Expansion Set 2 includes the Toy-Con Wind Pedal and Toy-Con Bird.

"With the new Nintendo Labo VR Kit, there's more to Make, Play, and Discover together than ever before", the official website reads.

Using it to turn the Switch into a handheld VR headset is such an obvious idea it kind of makes me want to kick myself for not considering it before this. "We wanted to design an experience that encourages both virtual and real-world interactions among players through passing around Toy-Con creations".

USA trade deficit hits ten-year high
The deficit jumped almost 19% in December, pushing the trade imbalance for all of 2018 to widen to a decade-long high of $621bn. This comes despite President Trump's "America First" policies aimed at shrinking the trade gap and increasing American exports.

She is the sole owner of the brand Kylie Cosmetics. "What's been harder & more painful is being hurt by someone so close to me". Jenner was 10 years old when her family's massively successful reality show, " Keeping Up With the Kardashians ", premiered.

Slated for release April 12, Nintendo will offer two packages and two expansion packs for its Labo: VR kits.

The Toy-Con Garage feature will be making a return in the VR kit, which could lead to some seriously awesome creations. The VR Starter Set, meanwhile, includes the Switch software, but only the materials needed to build the VR Goggles and Blaster. "VR Kit is a unique first VR experience kids and families can build themselves!"

Anyone who only buys the smaller set will be able to buy the additional designs as expansions later on.

Don't, however, plan to start playing Nintendo's existing blockbusters like Super Mario Odyssey or The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild in VR now.

Here's something perhaps a lot of the people reading this weren't expecting - the next Nintendo Labo kit is a VR headset.
