Nintendo Labo Are Cardboard Peripherals For Your Switch, And It's So Nintendo

Posted January 19, 2018

The new Nintendo Labo kits will turn your Nintendo Switch video game console into an interactive toy. Once built, the toys act as accessories you can use to enhance your gaming experience. Now, Nintendo is dropping the toy part and selling kids the box - or at least cardboard that can be built into creations such as a 13-key piano, fishing pole, and motorbike. Then, the Switch will walk you through the building process with step-by-step directions that you can easily rewind or fast-forward. The Nintendo Labo Robot Kit ($79.99) includes the software and the ingredients to build a "cool robot suit", which looks more like a bulky backpack and head visor. And at a starting price of $69.99 per kit - more than a new game - the Labo kits could be a real revenue generator for the company once that initial console sale is made. For the kids who are eager to try out Labo, Nintendo will be holding events in NY and San Francisco.

"What is the Nintendo Labo?".

Officially, only two Nintendo Labo Toy-Con kits have been announced.

With the first Nintendo Labo Toy-Con kits being released in April, these other teased peripherals could be released in batches in the months after the initial launch.

Together with the Nintendo Switch system, the Nintendo Labo kits provide the tools and technology to make DIY creations.

Nintendo recently announced Nintendo Labo, a DIY kit that allows you transform the Switch console into cardboard creations.

Brittney Gargol , 18, was found dead near a landfill in March 2015 and an autopsy later revealed that she died of strangulation. Police eventually used the pair's postings on social media to reconstruct the events of Gargol's final night.

This could lead Nintendo to the release the long-awaited robot fighting game brainstormed by Shigeru Miyamoto that was supposed to land on the WiiU. The sets can be crafted and altered to be used in many different ways.

A second kit, called the "Robot Kit," lets you assemble your own cardboard exoskeleton to control a virtual robot.

As the world becomes more and more digital Nintendo is taking a step back with their new line of toys for the Switch, Labo.

Just a few years ago, the viability of Nintendo seemed doubtful.

But the game is just one thing. As they punched out pieces of the kit, Aiden commented that this looked like some puzzle and when they started to assemble it, he said that it was like the Gunpla that adorns my office.

And the Robot Kit is right up my son's alley.
