Nintendo finally brings VR to the Switch

The new Nintendo Labo VR kits will be available in North America starting 12 April.

For $80, you'll get the Nintendo Labo VR Kit with the goggles, five cardboard designs (including a standard VR headset look, blaster, camera, elephant, bird and wind pedal) and software. Two additional expansion packs (Camera + Elephant, or Bird + Wind Pedal) will be available to purchase at a later date for $19.99 (around £15 / AU$28).

The Toy-Con 04 VR Kit will launch in the USA on 12 April through Nintendo, though there's now no word on when the set will come to other territories. To help encourage this social gameplay, players simply slip the Nintendo Switch console into the Toy-Con VR Goggles and hold it up to their eyes to explore numerous games and experiences - no head-strap needed.

Maduro, meanwhile, pressed his supporters to hold "anti-imperialist" marches Saturday to counter fresh protests planned by Guaido. The move brings to more than 250 the number of Venezuelans targeted by U.S. visa bans, a State Department official told AFP.

On that note, you can slowly add the rest of the Toy-Cons to your arsenal, thanks to Nintendo also releasing two expansion kits. The new Toy-Con VR Goggles can be combined with the other Toy-Con creations, and used for real-world actions. Both kits will include Labo software and games, an installation guide, and a garage mode for building your very own Labo. The mistake was the result of an editor (hi) misreading the press release (sorry Ali!) and we sure do regret the error. It's a good option for kids and families who want to dive in to the full experience. Instead, you'll play smaller VR experiences designed for one of the six Toy-Con projects found with the Labo: VR Kit. 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. The VR Kit will retail for $79.99.

Prepare to make, play and discover in a whole new way when Nintendo Labo: VR Kit for Nintendo Switch launches on 12 April.
