Nintendo Does VR Now, Again


Nintendo has revealed its latest Labo set, the VR Kit, which turns the Switch into a virtual reality headset.

The VR Kits for Nintendo Switch will be available on 12 April and cost $79.99 and $39.99 respectively (we're still waiting for United Kingdom prices).

The complete Nintendo Labo: VR Kit, priced at $79.99 (roughly £60 / AU$113), comes bundled with VR goggles and software, along with five cardboard sets, including Wind Pedal, Camera, Elephant, Bird and Blaster.

Nintendo Labo: VR Kit will release at retail April 12 with two primary configurations. "Or, if you want an even broader experience right away, you can purchase the full Nintendo Labo VR Kit, which features six VR Toy-Con projects in one package".

Nintendo has announced that it is getting into the VR gaming business - in a way.

The Warriors Will Reportedly Bring Andrew Bogut Back From Australia
He has career averages of 9.7 points on.535 shooting, 8.7 boards and 1.6 blocks over 28.4 minutes a night. Bogut signed a two-year deal with the Sydney Kings on April 2018.

Now, of course, since this is a Labo-based set, it does just mean that Nintendo is developing software specifically around the cardboard kit; you're not suddenly going to playing Mario Kart 8 or The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild if you pick up the cardboard kit. Anyone who purchases the Starter Kit can buy expansions later to upgrade their VR experience. The mistake was the result of an editor (hi) misreading the press release (sorry Ali!) and we sure do regret the error.

The VR Kit is created to be passed around and shared among a group of people, Nintendo said. The new Toy-Con VR Goggles can be combined with the other Toy-Con creations, and used for real-world actions.

Both Labo VR kits will launch on April 12, and will let players transform their Switch into a VR headset by slipping it into a pair of cardboard Toy-Con goggles and holding it up to their eyes - no head strap required. "VR Kit is a unique first VR experience kids and families can build themselves!"

Our embedded product diagrams help make sense of the above VR kit options. There's also a $40 version that only includes the goggles, blaster design and the software.
