All starting at only $69.99. There's also a house that you can play with by sliding in different blocks, and a motorbike controller that lets you play a racing game by holding the cardboard handles. While Playstation and Xbox are competing to be the best PC-style console, Nintendo subverted that trend by creating the Switch, a gaming device you can play either at home or while you're on-the-go.
Nintendo Labo's Variety Kit and Robot Kit will release on April 20, 2018 in the U.S., and April 27, 2018 in Europe for the Switch.
There's another kit where users can create an interactive robot suit complete with straps for a kid's hands and feet. Containing stencils, stickers, and decorative tape, the Customisation Set has an MSRP of $14.95 AUD. A very cool product that tapped into the mind-90s fascination with virtual reality, but became the company's biggest flop, selling just 770,000 units.
Labo is a surprising new project that Nintendo unveiled on Wednesday afternoon, and it's coming out really soon (in April!). Because each accessory is cardboard and comes with easy to follow instructions, kids can make them with or without adult supervision.
The announcement video actually has to be seen to be believed. Or how fragile the individual keys on the piano look?
Ex-MotorStorm and DriveClub devs have founded Wushu Studios
Notable games from Evolution Studios are Motorstorm and Driveclub , but Wushu Studios says it won't be making racing games. It takes time to make games, so it's not likely we'll know exactly what Wushu has up their sleeves for some time to come.
If you've ever anxious that video game consoles don't inspire creativity in your child the same way model kits and Lego creations do, Nintendo Labo is for your family.
Craziest of all, no doubt, is the robot construction kit. That's a recipe for broken strings, ripped cardboard, tears, and shouts of "Why did we pay 80 bucks for THIS?"
"What is the Nintendo Labo?".
A trailer was shown they introduced the unusual yet inviting cardboard counterparts called Toy Cons that will be coming along with the game itself. And the good thing about cardboard peripherals is that they're recyclable and won't end up rotting in a landfill like plastic gadgets do. Not the most clarifying statement, but it is commendable to see the company position the imaginative add-on to the wildly successful Nintendo Switch as a family-oriented, collective experience.
