Nintendo Labo on the Switch is Nintendo at its most bizarrely magical

Imagine being able to turn a simple piece of cardboard into almost anything: a motorbike, a fishing rod, a piano or whatever you can imagine!

By assembling sheets of cardboard into a variety of shapes called Toy-Con, and combining them with Nintendo Switch, you can bring them to life!

This is some bizarro Nintendo shit. It’s beautiful and magic and I love it! Despite the hot takes spreading like wild fire across the internet by “hardcore” gamers and Nintendo fans alike I have little doubt in my mind that these kits are going to sell like hot cakes and kids are going to eat them up.

Available April 20th Labo will be available in two versions. The first is called “The Variety Kit” will retail for A$99.95 and includes cardboard templates for a myriad of creations including a RC car, fishing rod, house, motorbike and piano.

The second version is slightly more expensive at A$119.95 and is a single constructible called the “Toy Con Robot”. The robot is in fact a backpack and goggles that the player wears whilst playing titles that appear to emulate being a giant robot.

Nintendo are also selling a Nintendo Labo sticker pack for A$14.95 however, as you can see in the trailer, it’s encouraged to colour and decorate your Labo creations as you please and by no means are reliant on the sticker pack.
