Nintendo Labo Explained: 9 Things You Need To Know

On Wednesday Nintendo revealed their new initiative called Nintendo Labo, which revolves around cardboard DIY accessories that can be used to interact with the Switch console tablet, and it's two JoyCons. Yep, we've definitely done those in VR before. "It is an exciting evolution of the Nintendo Switch platform - one created to inspire curiosity, creativity and imagination in people of all ages". Not a surprise, after Fils-Aime's fairly bleak and negative outlook on VR gaming only a few months ago.

The basic Nintendo Labo kit costs £59.99, and includes the cardboard Toy-Con designs for the piano, bug, bike handlebars, doll's house and fishing rod, as well as the Switch game card with associated mini-games.

Another kit builds an interactive robot suit with a visor, backpack and straps for the user's hands and feet.

That means a paper R/C vehicle that you can drive. Materials to construct two RC Cars are included. Once you feel a vibration from the Joy-Con inserted in the reel, you must tug the Fishing Rod upward and crank the reel quickly to try and complete the catch! Pressing the ignition button starts the engine, while twisting the right handle activates the throttle.

They range in difficulty from a simply robot that moves around the room to a fully-wearable robot suit.
