Nintendo Brings Homemade VR to Switch in New Labo Kit

Fourth kit provides shareable and simple VR experiences

Virtual Boy is back! Okay, while that's not technically true, Nintendo is finally introducing virtual reality to Switch, only it's happening in the most Nintendo way possible. VR is on the way in the form of the fourth Nintendo Labo kit, which aims to provide shareable and simple VR gaming experiences in a variety of ways. 


The kit offers the tools necessary to build Toy-Con VR Goggles, which players can combine with other cardboard creations for immersive activities. The full Labo VR Kit will be priced at $79.99 and will come with all the software along with materials for the VR Goggles, Toy-Con Blaster, Toy-Con Camera, Toy-Con Bird, Toy-Con Wind Pedal, Toy-Con Elephant, Screen Holder, and Safety Cap.


Those who don't want all the extras can opt for the Starter Set, which includes the VR Goggles, Toy-Con Blaster, Screen Holder, and Safety Cap for $39.99. There are also separate expansion sets that include two additional pieces each, priced at $19.99. Those expansions will be exclusives. 



Nintendo Labo: VR Kit is due out on April 12.
