Nintendo Labo VR Kit Arrives April 12, 2019

Nintendo Announces Labo VR Kit: Releasing April 12 - News Nintendo Introduces New Labo Kit That Brings Virtual Reality to Switch

It costs $40 and includes the Nintendo Labo software, the Toy-Con VR Goggles, the aforementioned blaster, the screen holder, and the safety cap.

Nintendo's two Labo VR sets will be available in the U.S. from April 12, 2019, with releases in the United Kingdom and Australia expected to arrive around the same time.

The VR kit will be available in North America on April 12.

Nintendo is also offering a Starter Kit, priced at $39.99 (about £30 / AU$57) that includes just the googles and Blaster design.

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

Nintendo's latest Labo kit fuses DIY cardboard construction projects with virtual reality, promising a simple and shareable VR experience for kids and families.

Nintendo claims that by eliminating the head strap of most VR wearables and opting for devices that players hold up to their faces, it will make for a more social experience. The kits will support the Switch being used for the screens, and the Joy-Con will be used for tracking.

Nintendo said it will offer more information about other VR experiences in the future.

The second kit is a starter set, stripped down to include the Goggles and Blaster.

Here's something perhaps a lot of the people reading this weren't expecting - the next Nintendo Labo kit is a VR headset. Nintendo Labo: VR Kit will launch with two primary configurations - the Nintendo Labo: VR Kit and the Nintendo Labo: VR Kit - Starter Set + Blaster - while owners of the Starter Set looking to expand their Labo VR experience can purchase two optional expansion sets.

The Toy-Con Garage feature will be making a return in the VR kit, which could lead to some seriously awesome creations.
