Nintendo Labo was announced earlier as a “New Way to Play” on the Nintendo Switch. The makeshift cardboard kit allows kids to be creative and use Switch to play. There are two kits available at different prices and while the concept is very interesting and unique, the internet is using this opportunity to share its excitement by posting creative, and hilarious posts.

Nintendo Labo has two kits – the variety Kit and The Robot Kit. The first comes with two Toy-Con RC Cars, a Toy-Con Fishing Rod, a Toy-Con House, a Toy-Con Motorbike and a Toy-Con Piano. You can pick up the verity kit for $69.99. Meanwhile, the Robot Kit is going to cost players $79.99.
The Robot Kit comes with “an interactive robot suit with a visor, backpack, and straps for your hands and feet”. You can also grab a “Customization Set” for an extra $10.
Labo is pretty unique but part of the community was hoping for VR support. But since Nintendo made it clear that the announcement will be for kids and those who are kids at hearts, our VR dreams were crushed.
In fact, a little while back Nintendo has the following to say about VR support.
If you look at VR headsets, I doubt they can appeal to the mainstream. Consumers are not patient with entertainment if you’re not able to deliver an all-inclusive package.
As far as 4K is concerned, is it useful to invest in a technology that has not been adopted by the majority? Where are 4K TVs now? Is it a good idea to invest in a technology before consumers do? We can’t invest in everything. And what novelty would we bring compared to our competitors?
If we do the exact same thing that everyone else, we’re bound to die because we are smaller than them. With the Switch, we offer different uses, adapted to players’ pace of life. Its advantage is being able to fit into your daily life.
