Nintendo is bringing virtual reality to Switch with its new Labo: VR Kit. The firm has published product pages outlining two new "Simple, Friendly, Fun" cardboard kits that allow children and families to build their own VR gizmos, which will be powered by the Switch console. A cheaper Starter Set, which includes the cardboard necessary for the Goggles and Blaster will be available soon, and there will be two additional expansion packs.

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.

The Toy-Con 04 VR Kit will launch in the United States on 12 April through Nintendo, though there's now no word on when the set will come to other territories.

"With the new Nintendo Labo VR Kit, there's more to Make, Play, and Discover together than ever before", the Nintendo Labo website reads. Don't expect VR mainstays for other systems, like Superhot, either.

Combining the Labo's content creation capabilities in Toy-Con Garage with the possibilities of virtual reality opens up new doors for amateur creators and schools.

"We wanted to design an experience that encourages both virtual and real-world interactions among players through passing around Toy-Con creations", said newly-appointed Nintendo of America president Doug Bowser. The VR Starter Set, meanwhile, includes the Switch software, but only the materials needed to build the VR Goggles and Blaster.

Nintendo gaming fans will have to wait until 12 April for these VR kits to make it to retail (US date and prices provided).

Price-wise The full Labo VR kits will set you back $80 (~RM326). Owners of the latter can pick up the two VR Kit expansions for $20 each.

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 Starter Set is a great entry point into the world of Nintendo Labo VR.
