  • Nintendo's Labo VR kits turn the Switch into a Google Cardboard with extras

The Toy-Con 04 VR Kit will launch in the United States on 12 April through Nintendo, though there's now no word on when the set will come to other territories. The base kit will cost $79.99, coming with six cardboard kits to build: the VR goggles, a blaster, a camera, a screen holder, a bird, and, best of all, an elephant.

In a surprise to practically everyone, Nintendo announced a virtual reality Labo kit for the Switch - and it's out April 12. Priced at $80, Nintendo's VR kit includes an alien shooting title and an ocean swimming simulation.

Strictly speaking there is just one dedicated VR kit, the Toy-Con 04 VR Kit, but it will be available in two configurations. Rather, the latest addition to its line of Labo cardboard accessories will be a VR kit that you can use to morph your Switch and Joy-Con controllers into a makeshift headset.

The VR Kit is created to be passed around and shared among a group of people, Nintendo said.

Nintendo's VR headset doesn't require a strap-on to stay affixed.

Imelda Staunton , Juno Temple and Lesley Manville are back to cause more bumbling mayhem as the well-meaning but hopeless pixies. Other new additions include Chiwetel Ejiofor , Ed Skrein and Robert Lindsay .

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. Along with that, users can turn off the VR functionality and use the screen holder and cap in 2D mode.

Nintendo claims that by eliminating the head strap of most VR wearables and opting for devices that players hold up to their faces, it will make for a more social experience.

Don't, however, plan to start playing Nintendo's existing blockbusters like Super Mario Odyssey or The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild in VR now. "VR Kit is a unique first VR experience kids and families can build themselves!"

Not wishing to make people double dip, owners of the starter kit can pick up two expansion sets for $19.99 each. Those looking to get their feet wet can begin with the Starter Set, which includes the VR Goggles as well as a Blaster, for $39.99.
