If you’re a gaming enthusiast, you probably would have already heard of Nintendo’s announcement earlier this year. For those who haven’t, here’s what the Nintendo Labo is in a nutshell: Cardboard cutout kits which users will fold and turn into various shapes to complement the Nintendo Switch console. Of course, each Nintendo Labo kit will include the digital game to pair with your DIY peripherals. Sounds too makeshift for your liking? Here’s what we know about the Labo so far:
1. Variety kit
The main attraction of the Nintendo Labo so far is the Variety Kit which comes with five different cardboard sets to make five different “Toy-Cons”. There’s a remote-controlled car that players can steer like a normal remote-controlled vehicle, a fishing rod which extends out with string and even vibrate when you catch a fish. Fancy building your own (functional) piano from cardboard? The Toy-Con Piano included in the Variety Kit has a full octave of keys as well as knobs to tweak the output or even create new noises.
