Twitter Has a Field Day with Nintendo's Latest 'Console'

DIY experience Nintendo Labo launches on Switch this April

DIY experience Nintendo Labo launches on Switch this April

By mounting the Joy-Cons into the costume's backpack and docking the Switch, players are able to control the mini-games on the TV. If you were sold by what you saw in the Nintendo Labo trailer, but aren't sure whether you should get the Variety Kit or the Robot Kit, let us run you through the differences. The kits are made up of modular cardboard components that can be built into various real-world items "specially created to interact with the Nintendo Switch" and allow gamers to "relive their childhood". For the kids who are eager to try out Labo, Nintendo will be holding events in NY and San Francisco.

But despite the similarities, Nintendo of America President Reggie Fils-Aime says that this is definitely not Nintendo's answer to VR.

There will be two different Nintendo Labo kits available at launch in April.

If you're over in the United States, only the Variety Kit ($69.99) and Robot Kit ($79.99) are available at present.

The Nintendo Labo essentially transforms your Nintendo Switch and Joy Con controllers in fishing rods, pianos, motorbikes and even a robot suit. There'll also be a $10 Customization Kit available that includes stencils, stickers, and colored tape.

Carillion: What is the government doing to help SMEs?
Jeremy Corbyn yesterday vowed to end public sector outsourcing in the wake of the collapse of support services giant Carillion . The FSB had raised concerns with Carillion previous year about its policy of extending payment terms to 120 days, he said.

For example, you can plug the console's controllers into the auto, and it will move around thanks to the controllers' vibrations, responding to users' input from the Switch's touchscreen.

Want to be one of the first to try out Nintendo Labo? Building toys as a kid is as old as Lincoln Logs, and Nintendo should be commended for meshing new and old in a meaningful way.

Nintendo is known for their offbeat approach to game consoles.

Cardboard creations are already popular, but it's the way the Nintendo Switch and its controllers make these accessories interactive that is exciting.

As for the motorbike, the Joy-Cons can be placed into a cardboard set of handlebars to drive the bike on-screen. "Simply hit the ignition button, turn the right handle to engage the accelerator and watch your adventure unfold on the Nintendo Switch screen, as you race to new destinations". You can even insert different assembled knobs to create new sound effects and tones! The first one is the Variety Kit, which includes several games and Toy-Con projects, according to Polygon.
