VR comes to Nintendo Switch

VR comes to Nintendo Switch

VR Kit includes six cardboard Toy-Con creations to build including the Toy-Con VR Goggles, the Toy-Con Blaster and the Toy-Con Camera.

Incoming Nintendo of America president Doug Bowser said, "We wanted to design an experience that encourages both virtual and real-world interactions among players through passing around Toy-Con creations".

Nintendo has revealed its latest Labo set, the VR Kit, which turns the Switch into a virtual reality headset.

The Nintendo VR Kit will release in April. The Starter Set is a great entry point into the world of Nintendo Labo VR.

Combining the Labo's content creation capabilities in Toy-Con Garage with the possibilities of virtual reality opens up new doors for amateur creators and schools.

While sticking your head inside a pair of VR goggles isn't exactly a social event, Nintendo suggests a more social gathering might be the optimal way to experience the kit. Each set is priced individually at $19.99. Instead, you'll play smaller VR experiences designed for one of the six Toy-Con projects found with the Labo: VR Kit. The first was the Variety Set that included the Fishing Rod, Piano, Motorbike and RC Car. On the surface, the rumours made sense: The idea of taking a compact tablet-like device and attaching lenses is well-proven in projects from Google's Cardboard to Samsung's Gear VR, and the Switch's controllers include motion tracking capabilities as standard.

As owners of the previous three Labo Toy-Con sets will know, there's also a number of different options to choose from within the new package.

In an update post launch, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe became compatible with the Vehicle Kit allowing for a new way to race. The full kit will include the Toy-Cons mentioned above as well as a Toy-Con Bird, Toy-Con Wind Pedal and Toy-Con Elephant for $79.99.

The Nintendo Labo: VR Kit will launch in two configurations. Let us know in the comments section below.
