Nintendo Announces Labo: DIY Cardboard Toy Components for the Switch

“Make, play, discover.”

By //Entertainment

Nintendo today announced Nintendo Labo, essentially a kit for users to build their own peripheral accessories for the Switch. The kit allows players to insert the console and its Joy-Cons into designated pieces of cardboard to make robots, fishing rods, and 13-key pianos, to name a few options. “Nintendo Labo combines the magic of Nintendo Switch with the fun of DIY creations,” of which the company then refers to as Toy-Cons.

Once you build these kits, the Switch is used to power it, allowing owners to play games with their creations. Nintendo Labo will debut April 20, with two different sets available at launch. The Variety Kit will sell for $70 USD and the Robot Kit will go for $80 USD. For now, check out the announcement video above and share your thoughts below.
