The New 'Nintendo Labo' Will Allow Gamers To Custom Build Accessories

The Nintendo 3DS just had its best month in years

Nintendo announced their Nintendo Labo line of cardboard building kits created to work with the Switch. For example, once you craft your 13-key piano - following the step-by-step instructions on the cardboard pieces - you attach your Nintendo Switch console and the right Joy-Con controller and can then play music by pressing the keys.

You were mistaken: the Nintendo Switch isn't a games console. Nintendo says it will let users "build an interactive robot suit with a visor, backpack and straps for your hands and feet, which you can then wear to assume control of a giant in-game robot".

Once connected to the Joy-Con controller, the Labo project becomes a digitally augmented toy.

Nintendo recently announced Nintendo Labo, a DIY kit that allows you transform the Switch console into cardboard creations. The slightly more expensive kit comes with the massive robot suit seen in the video (top). Ltd.'s latest innovation, dubbed Nintendo Labo. After a vague announcement, Nintendo has announced the Nintendo Labo, a typically Nintendo-innovative and weird way to play with your Nintendo Switch.

Wall 'Must' Be Part of Any DACA Deal
"The parents that we presume they brought them here that we're not talking about now, they don't wanna deport them either". How can the GOP give Trump a win on the wall without alienating Democrats from a bipartisan solution on DACA?

Nintendo Labo will be available across Europe from 27 April, with prices starting from $70 (£50).

To play, choose the Toy-Con you want to build - they range in difficulty, and can take anywhere from 15 minutes to over an hour to create. These are put together to make a fishing rod, or a house, or a motorbike, or a piano- Hell, there's a lot that the Labo can turn into! Both kits will be available April 20th, so mom, dad get everything in order cause we are sure this the Labo will be flying off shelves. There will also be accessory kits offered to allow each toy to be customized using stickers and stencils, and of course coloring them in is encouraged.

The designs are absolutely novel and unique, and who knows if Nintendo plans on unveiling more sets apart from the two initially introduced?

Looks like Nintendo may have found their way get Switches into classrooms as well with the Labo. The Toy-Con Motorbike features an ignition button to start the engine and a throttle can be activated by twisting the right handle. Oh, yeah, that's how Nintendo calls the cardboard peripherals: Toy-Cons. "I personally hope to see many people enjoy making kits with their family members, with big smiles on their faces".
