Nintendo Announces New Switch Accessory Nintendo Labo

The Nintendo Labo Variety Kit for Nintendo Switch includes a cardboard punchout model of a working

If you've been online at any point for the past day or so then there's no doubt you've come across something highlighting Nintendo's newest endeavor: Nintendo Labo.

Created to be used with the Nintendo Switch console and its accompanying Joy-Con controllers, the kit comprises modular sheets of cardboard that can be transformed into interactive creations. Nintendo Labo features cardboard sheets that users can pop out and fold into everything from motorbike handles to fishing rods and a miniature piano. The Robot Kit takes the form of a backpack, visor, and foot inserts.

Nintendo Labo is slated to become available on April 27, with more kits expected to debut in the months that follow if everything proves successful. The US price is set at $69.99 for the variety pack and $79.99 for the robot pack. These games will allow players to use tools that they built, giving them a sense of ownership over the games they play. So, for example, once the motorbike is built there will be a racing game to enjoy using it, the piano can actually be played.

Quirky low-key toys made out of hardboard and elastic bands have given Nintendo a boost worth more than $1bn. Here's all you need to know about the cardboard "Toy-Cons".

One has to wonder when Nintendo came up with the idea for "Labo". The Nintendo Labo kits can be quite intricate with multiple components and moving parts. But the combination thereof is something else entirely: It's Nintendo Labo, the latest creation from the Japanese gaming powerhouse.

The Nintendo Labo may turn out to be more profitable as far as percentages are concerned than the amiibo product line.

Nintendo is calling these things "toy-cons" and seems to be looking to encourage creativity, education and play specifically in its younger audience.

When assembling the cardboard toys, instructions videos will be found on the Nintendo Switch.

Nothing makes you appreciate a mobile video game console like a role-playing game that you can get lost in. Well, it's essentially just a kit filled with cardboard pieces.
