Nintendo Announces New Line of Accessories for Switch

19 January 2018

Last night, the company announced Nintendo Labo, a new range of cardboard-based "build and play" experiences created to inspire creativity. That's why these new gaming add-ons are so exciting.

Nintendo UK has revealed the pricing of the recently unveiled Nintendo Labo products and they certainly aren't cheap.

Nintendo Labo kits launch onto market April 20, available as either the Variety Kit or Robot Kit.

I should mention that we have not played with or tested Nintendo Labo in any way, so my reservations are my own and purely based on my own past as a junior builder. Replacement kits and templates will be available, because despite the initial sturdiness of the Toy-Cons, you might find that cardboard tends to get weak with extensive wear-and-tear.

President Trump's Medical Exam Fuels Flurry of 'Girther' Conspiracy Theories
Jackson said the president sleeps only four to five hours a night but rarely sees the president overly stressed. He added that he did not intend to carry out a cognitive test but did so at the President's insistence.

The fishing rod toy, for example, features a rotating reel that is attached by string to a cradle holding the Nintendo Switch console.

Nintendo hates you. It's something you're going to have to get used to. The same goes for the piano, house and robot kits. It something we haven't really seen augmented reality do yet, and it only makes sense coming from our toy-making, ahead-of-the-game friends at Nintendo. This allows players to build and customize their own accessories. Building on the 129-year history of Nintendo, which is rooted in innovative entertainment and game-play experiences, Nintendo Labo continues the company's mission of putting smiles on people's faces.

The do-it-yourself cardboard kits are poised to be an additional revenue source for the Japanese firm. Pretty sure he won't sleep until he has a Switch and Robot Kit. The engineering breakdown that Labo has shows how the kits work, allowing the mechanics to work with other personal projects.

All the things kids can make with the Labo Toy-Con Variety Pack. It contains the fishing rod, a house, the motorbike, the piano, and two RC cars. It will cost $69.99. From the aesthetic to the somewhat easy-to-grasp controls, it all feels ripe for virtual reality. That one will cost $79.99.

Dow Jones Spikes 1.3% on Strong Earnings
Viacom fell 7.0 percent after sources told Reuters CBS Corp and the company were not in active merger discussions. The Japanese yen was flat at 110.54 per dollar, the first retreat in more than a week.

Finally, there's the Nintendo Labo Customization Set for $9.99. If the Labo kits sell out quickly, expect NTDOY stock to get a boost. This, of course, comes with the software so you can interact with the different creations that come in the box. The Variety Kit includes the fishing rod, motorbike, piano, an RC auto and a house. The company isn't offering any pre-order discounts or savings yet.

And the Robot Kit is right up my son's alley.

NINTENDO has long promised new "experiences" and it has delivered on that since day one. As they punched out pieces of the kit, Aiden commented that this looked like some puzzle and when they started to assemble it, he said that it was like the Gunpla that adorns my office. The event will happen on February 2-3, 2018 in New York City and March 2-4, 2018 in San Francisco. Now, kids can add a DIY element to their video game world. Lost Sphear is the spiritual successor to another game that RPG factory made, I Am Setsuna.
