‘Nintendo Labo Vehicle Kit’ Expands DIY Switch Projects
Take to the road, or to the skies
Nintendo is expanding the possibilities of the company’s popular Labo kits, allowing builders to create kits for cars, planes, submarines, and more. It’s called the “Nintendo Labo: Vehicle Kit,” and it is set to launch on September 14th.
The new Labo kit, like the previous kits that have been released, are designed to work with the Nintendo Switch and contains materials to build a variety of customizable cardboard creations called Toy-Con. These kits can include a Car, a Submarine, a Plane, a Pedal, two Keys and other combinations. By inserting one of the assembled Keys into any of the vehicles, players can enjoy a variety of fun games and activities. Changing between vehicles while adventuring seems pretty easy, you simply pull the Key out of one slot and put it in another, and you can change from a car to submarine faster than James Bond.
“Nintendo Labo is a collaborative and creative experience designed to encourage imagination in people of all ages,” said Doug Bowser, Nintendo of America’s Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing. “We’re excited to offer a variety of fun gameplay experiences with Vehicle Kit, and look forward to seeing the creative Nintendo Labo community continue to grow.”
Nintendo Labo was first introduced back in April, the kits allow builders to create fun DIY creations that work with the Nintendo Switch console. The Nintendo Labo: Vehicle Kit will unlock even more ways for people to make, play and discover together, as they speed through races, battle cars equipped with extendable arms and explore mysterious worlds filled with their imagination. Each vehicle features its own controls and special moves, and with the second Key, players can even invite a co-pilot along on their in-game journey. Nintendo released the following promotion video to introduce the kits, you can watch the video below.
As with every Nintendo Labo kit, Nintendo Labo: Vehicle Kit includes its own unique Nintendo Switch software designed to work with the included Toy-Con projects. You can even expand on the Nintendo Labo: Vehicle Kit with the “Toy-Con Garage”. The interactive programming tool is included with every Nintendo Labo kit and features a simple, visual interface and handy tutorials designed for players of all ages. Toy-Con Garage encourages players to experiment with the Toy-Con creations they’ve built or craft their own original designs using handy household items like paper cups, stickers and ribbon.
The Nintendo Labo: Vehicle Kit will ship for $69.99. You can find the Nintendo Labo kits on sites like Amazon, which are offering the Nintendo Labo: Variety Kit and Nintendo Labo: Robot Kit, which are $69.99 and $79.99, respectively.
