Nintendo is making their Switch console even more exciting by introducing the new the Nintendo Labo, a range of cardboard toys that can be used with the Nintendo Switch console.
Nintendo Labo kits provide the tools and technology to make fun D.I.Y. creations, play games with your creations and discover how Nintendo Switch technology shapes ideas into reality.
With each Nintendo Labo kit, inspired minds across all generations can transform modular sheets of cardboard – specially designed to interact with the Nintendo Switch console and Joy-Con controllers – into interactive creations called Toy-Con. From a piano to a motorbike, a robot and more, each Toy-Con comes to life when combined with Nintendo Switch in different ways.
With Nintendo Labo, making and discovering is just as much fun as playing. Every Toy-Con creation presents exciting challenges and varying degrees of complexity, so each one is a unique experience. Making Toy-Con is especially fun with family and friends, as you collaborate and share each other’s Nintendo Labo experiences. Once built, those with a creative touch can customise their Toy-Con creations with their own colouring pens, stickers and paint to give them a personal feel – the only limit is their imagination. A special Customisation Set that includes fun stencils, stickers and coloured tape.
Nintendo Labo launches in South Africa on 27th April with two kits:
- the Variety Kit – you can create many different Toy-Con, including Toy-Con RC Car, Toy-Con Fishing Rod, Toy-Con House, Toy-Con Motorbike and Toy-Con Piano.
- the Robot Kit – Toy-Con Robot: Create a wearable robot suit, and insert the left and right Joy-Con into the designated slots on the backpack and visor to assume control of the robot, which is shown on the TV when the Nintendo Switch console is docked.
Both kits include everything you need to bring your Toy-Con to life, including the building materials and relevant Nintendo Switch software.*
