Nintendo to launch DIY cardboard toys for the Switch

DIY experience Nintendo Labo launches on Switch this April

That's why these new gaming add-ons are so exciting. The kits are scheduled to launch in Australia and New Zealand on April 20th. Additionally, how everything works in relation to the Joy-Cons will be shown on screen to curious kids and adults alike, who might wonder how something like a cardboard piano could work.

Nintendo LABO are accessory kits that encourage kids to create on their own.

These designs are being made available through kits which are selling for up to $80 (£57), alongside the software needed to play specially designed games with them.

While the consensus is that Nintendo Labo is an innovative take on video games, the price tag is a bit too high. It will even be possible, according to Nintendo, to invent new ways in which to play with the Toy-Cons you build. The Variety Kit will retail for $69.99.

One has a pair of Toy-Con RC Car builds, which you can slide the Joy-Con controllers into - and then it drives, thanks to the HD Rumble vibrations in each controller.

That being said, once you see how much each Nintendo Labo kit costs, you may think twice about ever throwing a creation away. Ltd.'s latest innovation, dubbed Nintendo Labo. Specifically, it will be your imagination, as the world of papercraft becomes an actual tangible accessory, with Nintendo developing a concept that will have you build the peripherals for the Nintendo Switch.

In the variety pack you will get a selection of different Toy-Con, which are: a bug-like remote control "car", a motorcycle, a doll's house, a fishing rod and a piano.

So yeah, it's cardboard combined with the Nintendo Switch to make something fun for kids, big and small. This kit is nearly like buying a complete virtual reality game. It will cost $79.99.

Besides the fact that I adore that Nintendo is calling these "Toy-Cons", the part that makes me the most excited is that the customisation set gives us officially Nintendo-branded masking tape. This isn't a creation kit like the other two. This is the mindset that led to the creation of Nintendo Labo, which may be weird but totally within Nintendo's character as a video game company.
