Nintendo Labo: VR Kit a shared experience kids and families can build

Nintendo is entering the virtual reality world with their upcoming Nintendo Labo: VR Kit (available April 12), which combines physical and digital gameplay with basic VR technology that works with the Nintendo Switch system. Now families can create shareable experiences together – including everything from an alien invasion to in-game ocean photography and much more.


Nintendo Labo: VR Kit encourages passing around the different Toy-Con creations among a group of people to create a shared virtual experience. Players can simply slip the Nintendo Switch system into the Toy-Con VR Goggles and hold it up to their eyes to explore numerous games and experiences.

The Nintendo Labo: VR Kit will be available in two configurations with optional expansion packs available for purchase.

  • Nintendo Labo: VR Kit – Starter Set + Blaster (SRP $39.99): Includes the Nintendo Switch software, plus all the components to build the Toy-Con VR Goggles and Toy-Con Blaster, as well as the Screen Holder and Safety Cap. The Starter Set is a great entry point into the world of Nintendo Labo VR.
  • Nintendo Labo: VR Kit (SRP $79.99): Includes the Nintendo Switch software and materials to build all six Toy-Con projects – the Toy-Con VR Goggles, Toy-Con Blaster, Toy-Con Camera, Toy-Con Bird, Toy-Con Wind Pedal and Toy-Con Elephant – as well as a Screen Holder and Safety Cap. It’s a good option for kids and families who want to dive in to the full experience.

Players that own the Starter Set can purchase the following optional expansion sets to expand their experience:

  • Nintendo Labo: VR Kit – Expansion Set 1**(SRP $19.99): Includes the Toy-Con Elephant and Toy-Con Camera. *Users can easily turn off the VR feature and use the included Screen Holder instead of the VR Goggles to enjoy any of the included games and experiences in 2D.
  • Nintendo Labo: VR Kit – Expansion Set 2**(SRP $19.99): Includes the Toy-Con Wind Pedal and Toy-Con Bird. **The two expansion sets do not include the Toy-Con VR Goggles or Nintendo Labo: VR Kit software

The inventive Toy-Con Garage mode – included as part of all Nintendo Labo software – returns with Nintendo Labo: VR Kit, offering basic programming tools for players to experiment with. More information about the experiences offered by Nintendo Labo: VR Kit will be revealed in the future.

The Nintendo Labo: VR Kit – Starter Set + Blaster and complete Nintendo Labo: VR Kit will be in stores on April 12. The two expansion sets will be available exclusively online at www.store.nintendo.com
