Nintendo has announced its new Labo VR Kit. Officially marking the game company’s entrance into the realm of virtual reality.
Similar to previous Labo sets, the VR kit will launch in different bundles. The main VR kit comprises six different cardboard kits. Including a pair of VR goggles, a blaster, camera, bird, wind pedal, and an elephant. If the majority of these kits will seem a little too heavy on your wallet initially, there’s also a starter kit that only comes bundled with the VR goggles and blaster.
On that note, you can slowly add the rest of the Toy-Cons to your arsenal, thanks to Nintendo also releasing two expansion kits. The first kit will have the Toy-Con elephant and Camera, while the second kit will come with the Toy-Con wind pedal and Bird. Both kits will include Labo software and games, an installation guide, and a garage mode for building your very own Labo.
Price-wise The full Labo VR kits will set you back $80 (~RM326). The smaller starter kit will cost $40 (~RM163) and the expansion kits will each cost $20 (~RM81). The new Nintendo Labo VR kits will be available in North America starting 12 April.

One thing you’ll notice is that these Toy-Cons don’t seem to have a head strap attached to them. Nintendo claims that the elimination of the head straps was intentional, making the new VR Kit “a more social experience”.
