Nintendo Jumps on Virtual Reality with a New Labo Kit

Written by Luke Heyen on March 6th, 2019.

Last month, rumors of a virtual reality headset for the Nintendo Switch had appeared seemingly out of nowhere. Today, Nintendo dropped the news on their website that they will be entering VR space this April with their Labo product line. It will offer six new creations to build, including the new VR goggles. It seems there will be four bundles available to purchase on April 12th:

  • A full set which will include software, VR goggles, and five cardboard designs ($80 USD)
  • A smaller starter kit which will include software, VR goggles, and a blaster/rifle cardboard design ($40 USD)
  • Two expansion packs which will include either a Toy-Con elephant and camera or wind pedal and bird ($20 USD each)

If you’re hoping to play games like Mario Odyssey in virtual reality, you will be unfortunately disappointed. With Nintendo now moving into the consumer VR market and PlayStation already there, will Xbox make a move?
