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.
