Last night, Nintendo showed one of the most innovative, fun, creative, and cost-effective toys ever made for video games. The Nintendo Labo is a series of Do-It-Yourself cardboard creations that can be used with the Nintendo Switch for a whole new experience, and is set to release April 20, 2018. Some of these cool, interactive “Toy-Cons” include a 13 key piano
A fishing rod
And whatever this thing is
The starting Variety Kit includes “two Toy-Con RC cars, a Toy-Con fishing rod, a Toy-Con house, a Toy-Con motorbike, and a Toy-Con piano.” And will be priced at about $70.
The Robot Kit is an entirely different beast. It includes parts that you can use to “build an interactive robot suit with a visor, backpack, and straps for your hands and feet,which you can then wear to assume control of a giant in-game robot.”
The Robot Kit is set to be a little more expensive than the Variety Kit, at $80.
Each Kit comes with game cartridges for the Nintendo Switch.
Is this the future of Nintendo? Is this the future of gaming? Inexpensive-to-manufacture add-ons. Will you buy these Toy-Con Kits when they come out? Let us know your thoughts and opinions in the comments below and on all of our social media.
