Nintendo Switch Gets VR Support With New Labo Kit

Nintendo announces Nintendo Labo 'VR Kit'

Purchasers of the starter pack can buy the other kits for $19.99/$24.99 (Elephant+Camera, Wind Pedal+Toy Bird).

For those looking to dive right in, the Nintendo Labo Toy-Con 04: VR Kit includes everything from the Starter Set and both Expansion Sets for $79.99.

Experience a new dimension of Nintendo Labo with the launch of the Nintendo Labo: VR Kit on April 12, which combines the innovative physical and digital gameplay of Nintendo Labo with basic VR technology* to create a simple and shareable virtual reality experience for kids and families. "Nintendo Labo: VR Kit encourages passing around the Toy-Con creations among a group of people so everyone in the room can easily join in on the fun", the company said in its announcement post.

Strictly speaking there is just one dedicated VR kit, the Toy-Con 04 VR Kit, but it will be available in two configurations. Along with containing more cardboard to clutter your house, this new kit confirms the rumors that VR will be coming to the Switch. The new Toy-Con VR Goggles can be combined with the other Toy-Con creations, and used for real-world actions. You can also turn off the VR feature and use the included Screen Holder to experience content in 2D.

Hopefully, Nintendo will reveal more about the mini-games that these cardboard constructions will relate to - the VR experiences on offer. Both the Labo: VR Kit Starter Set + Blaster and the fully equipped Labo: VR Kit will be available online and in stores on April 12. The two expansion sets do not include the VR Goggles or VR Kit software.

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.

Not wishing to make people double dip, owners of the starter kit can pick up two expansion sets for $19.99 each. "VR Kit is a unique first VR experience kids and families can build themselves!"
