Nintendo's New Switch Games Are DIY Cardboard Toys

From robots to fishing rods to remote control cars there are plenty of hybrid type toys that integrate Nintendo's most powerful console and basic cardboard. After putting it together, users can press the cardboard keys, and musical notes come out of the console.

Another one of these kits includes an interactive robot suit equipped with a visor, backpack and straps for both the player's hands and feet.

These cardboard products called Toy-cons will be available in April.

Nintendo Labo is a series of DIY accessories for the Nintendo Switch which are made from cardboard.

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.

Nintendo lowkey hates its customers - especially its most loyal fanbase. Called Nintendo Labo, the first wave of the buildable "Toy-Con" range from a small remote control auto to a wearable robot jet-pack.

If you thought Minecraft was the best thing for kids on the Switch, get ready for Nintendo to (once again) blow your mind. That's the easy sell, and by all available accounts, $69.99 is a fair price for Labo's Variety Kit. Toy-Cons vary widely. There's a type of small RC auto, a piano, a house, a fishing rod, a robot suit, and more. It contains the fishing rod, a house, the motorbike, the piano, and two RC cars.

According to Eurogamer, Nintendo is requiring that any adult attending the event bring a child between the ages of seven and 15 in order to gain admittance.

Nintendo Labo also seems to draw from Warner Bros.

Nintendo Labo is looking to be like an interesting and innovative new take on augmented reality: one where you're given a tangible, physical object whose functionality is enhanced by what's on the screen.

In theory, this doesn't sound like too awful an idea - it's a craft game, where you build DIY toys in order to create peripherals for a series of minigames. Nintendo will also be selling customization sets, including tape, stickers, and stencils, for $9.99 a set.

Nintendo Labo is one of their most unique ideas yet.What is Nintendo Switch Labo? Each differently shaped block is detected by the IR Motion Camera on the Right Joy-Con inserted on top of the House. While the Switch's hybrid design is the innovation that has got tongues wagging, internally you get the impression the company is more excited about the Joy-Cons that sit astride the console's 6.2 inch LCD screen. Leaning your body or turning the handlebars left and right controls the motorbike.
