  • Nintendo Announces Labo VR Kit: Releasing April 12 - News

A brand-new Nintendo Labo kit has been announced by Nintendo, bringing VR experiences to the Nintendo Switch; say "hello" to Nintendo Labo Toy-Con 04: VR Kit! The base kit will cost $79.99, coming with six cardboard kits to build: the VR goggles, a blaster, a camera, a screen holder, a bird, and, best of all, an elephant.

There's also a $40 starter set that only includes the VR Goggles and Blaster (plus screen holder/cap/software), with the other pieces sold separately in two $20 expansion kits.

Gamers will have a few options to purchase the Labo VR kit. Prior to its reveal, people were speculating about whether Nintendo would create a VR headset, but it never happened. Whether this is the only move on its return to the platform is naturally unknown, but whether we get a fuller Nintendo VR experience in the future could depend on the adoption of this Labo kit.

The sets are slated for release on April 12 as either a starter and two expansion packs or in a complete set. VR Kit will make its debut on April 12, 2019. Each set is priced individually at $19.99.

US To Terminate GSP Trade Preference for India
The criteria include providing intellectual property protection, and giving the U.S. reasonable and fair market access. The decision to end the GSP may not entirely be influenced by high tariffs imposed by India on United States imports.

But by pairing a seemingly less intensive VR experience with its cardboard DIY accessories, the company may have discovered a way to circumvent the hefty processing requirements associated with today's VR-capable machines. In addition, numerous projects are knock-offs or copies of projects already in official Nintendo Kits, such as the fishing pole from the Variety Kit or the cars from the Vehicle Kit.

Switch owners can turn their console into a VR system using a cardboard kit. The five games include "Super Mario Odyssey", "Mario Kart 8 Deluxe", "Super Mario Party", "Mario Tennis Aces", and "New Super Mario Bros". Nintendo accommodates this by having Switch controllers placed within reach inside each variation on Labo's goggle setup.

The Labo VR Kit isn't yet available for pre-order, but check back at the Nintendo Online Store for updates. Let us know in the comments.
