Nintendo stealthily announced the new virtual reality set of Nintendo Lab for the Nintendo Switch. Nintendo Labo is expanding with the launch of the Nintendo Labo: VR Kit on April 12 and combines physical and digital gameplay.
Using a simplified version of virtual reality, Labo Toy-Con 04 allows children and their families the Nintendo take on VR. T
Nintendo Labo: VR Kit offers six new Toy-Con creations to build, including the Toy-Con VR Goggles, which combine with the other creations to allow players to interact with the virtual world through imaginative real-world actions. Fend off an alien invasion with the Toy-Con Blaster, visit a colourful in-game ocean and snap photos of the sea life with the Toy-Con Camera and so much more.
At launch, there will be two versions available for purchase. The base starter set + Blaster set you back $49.99 CAD and includes the Nintendo Switch software, the pieces to build the Ton-Con VR Goggles and the Toy-Con Blaster, with the Screen Holder and Safety Cap. If later on, you decide the starter set isn’t enough, the additional pieces are available as expansion packs.
If you want the entire suite which includes – 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. This will set you back around $110 CAD.
it is interesting seeing Nintendo make another attempt with virtual reality. While the last time didn’t end up being too hot, the Virtual Boy was one of those things doomed to fail While don’t go expecting any major titles ready and available in VR, this kit looks like a good starting point for children looking at what VR offers.
