Nintendo Announces Nintendo Labo, DIY Kits For Switch

The firm has announced Nintendo Labo which "combines the magic of the Nintendo Switch with fun DIY creations". Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime said, "Labo is unlike anything we've done before". "It is an exciting evolution of the Nintendo Switch platform - one created to inspire curiosity, creativity and imagination in people of all ages". The Nintendo Labo Variety Kit and Nintendo Labo Robot Kit are now set to launch on April 20, 2018. Both kits include everything you need to assemble your Toy-Con creations, including the building materials and relevant Nintendo Switch software.

Nintendo intends to release the Labo in two boxed sets. Al three kits will be available alongside Labo on launch day.

Nintendo Labo is one of the first projects on the Nintendo Switch that utilizes the right Joy-Con's infrared motion sensor outside of a few of the minigames in the launch game 1-2-Switch. Each object is formed from folding up the included cardboard sheets and putting the different parts together then sitting the Switch in these creations to bring them to life.

This was a time before I was aware of what consoles were and this morning Nintendo hit me right in the nostalgia gut. The piano actually detects the keys moving using the infrared sensor on the right Joy-Con, while the RC vehicle moves by channelling the sensitive HD Rumble of the Joy-Con through the cardboard.

The Motorbike kit, for example, will turn into handlebars, powered by the accelerometers in the Joy-Cons, for a new racing game.

If you own a Switch, you can get the Labo on 4/20 for $69.99.

In Nintendo's promotional trailer, Toy-Cons that have been customized with paint and tap eare also shown off. The second is the Robot Kit, a wearable suit of cardboard created to look like a robot. A customization kit that includes two stencil sheets, two rolls of tape and two sticker sheets will also be available for purchase along with Toy-Con replacement kits.
