For some time, rumors had been swirling about Nintendo making a play in the virtual reality space with the Nintendo Switch. It appears the rumors were true, at least in a limited form. Nintendo has announced its Labo VR Kit is set to release April 12 for Nintendo Switch.
VR Kit is the fourth entry in the Labo line of Switch games that come with cardboard accessories you assemble yourself using interactive instructions that come on the game cart. This particular kit is rolling out with a few different options to choose from, so let’s dive in to find the one that’s right for you.
Nintendo Labo Toy-Con 04: VR Kit
If you want the full Labo VR experience, this is the package to get. It comes with the Switch game and everything you need to assemble all six VR Toy-Con accessories:
- VR Goggles
- Wind Pedal
The mini-games are playable either in VR mode or in a traditional flat 2D mode. Here’s where you can preorder Nintendo Labo Toy-Con 04: VR Kit:
Nintendo Labo VR Kit Starter Set + Blaster
If $80 is more than you want to spend, you can buy the Toy-Con accessories separately. This starter kit comes with the game, along with the VR Goggles and Blaster cardboard accessories.
Nintendo Labo VR Kit Expansion Sets 1 and 2
Once you own the starter kit, you’ll be able to buy the remaining four Toy-Con accessories in groups of two with the expansion sets. Expansion Set 1 comes with the Camera and Elephant accessories, while Set 2 comes with the Bird and Wind Pedal. The software isn’t included, so you’ll need the starter set to use these. Once these expansions become available, Nintendo will sell them exclusively through its website.
