The New 'Nintendo Labo' Will Allow Gamers To Custom Build Accessories

  • The New 'Nintendo Labo' Will Allow Gamers To Custom Build Accessories

Toy-Con House: By inserting various assembled blocks into openings in the sides and bottom of the House, you can interact with, play games with and feed a cute creature on the front-facing Nintendo Switch screen. Some will be nothing more than additions to your collection of controller accessories you probably already have enough of from the days of the Nintendo Wii, but some could make for some educational opportunities to understand how the mechanics of various contraptions work. I asked him to come over and watch the commercial with me, to see if I was missing something.

Nintendo Labo will be available across Europe from 27 April, with prices starting from $70 (£50). He immediately asked if the new product was cardboard circuit boards.

A Google cardboard kit is only assembled once, it doesn't have moving parts, and it still gets worn and tattered pretty fast. The idea is you build them up and then slot your switch and Joy-Cons into them, thereby making an impressively functional toy out of something that's very economical.

He was floored. Aiden sat in total silence for the remainder of the announcement trailer.


It looks like a lot of thought has gone into the designs, and I'm curious about how well Labo will sell. His response was simple, but said quite a bit, "Wooooooooow!" With a small child at home, I've been extra vigilant about keeping track of them, because no one wants to spend $60 on a tiny piece of plastic that can easily vanish. In another instance, the player docks their Switch faces the TV screen and uses the Robot Kit to punch enemies or constructions. He ran out of the room, yelling down the hall, "Mom!" It also has knobs for tweaking the output and creating new noises, and you'll dock the Switch right into the little paper piano. "It's so cool, and dad says we can get it!"

Man, '80s kids are going to be so jealous. Each building kit comes with a cartridge with building instructions and the games.

Nintendo is hoping its newest gadget will appeal to kids and their vivid imaginations, allowing them to bring their favorite games into the physical world. This isn't a creation kit like the other two. They are priced starting at $10 more than Nintendo's AAA game titles like Super Mario Odyssey.
