Nintendo has revealed a new Labo feature called Toy-Con Garage mode that’s included with the software in each Labo kit for the Nintendo Switch system. This will allow users to free-code software to make Joy-Con controllers vibrate or make sounds during movement, among other inputs and output options.

By tapping on a sewer icon inside the Labo software, you can reach the special code area, where it presents a simple cause and effect interface that can be navigated with the touchscreen.

Check out the footage above and share your thoughts below. In related news, a Donkey Kong drum peripheral may be coming to the Nintendo Switch.
