The new Nintendo Labo VR Kit comes in two distinct versions. The Starter Set + Blaster “provides an action-packed introduction to the experience.” It comes with toy-con VR goggles and a toy-con blaster to be used with a blaster style game. It will retail for $39.99.
There are two optional expansion packs to compliment the Starter Set + Blaster. Expansion Set 1 comes with a toy-con camera and a toy-con elephant. Expansion Set 2 comes with a toy-con bird and a toy-con wind pedal. Both expansions will be priced at $19.99 Consumers can also purchase the full VR Kit which includes the starter kit and both expansion sets.
This will be the fourth Nintendo Labo Kit that Nintendo has released. Nintendo originally released the Variety Kit and the Robot Kit in April 2018. They then released the Vehicle Kit which was compatible with Mario Kart 8 Deluxe.
The newly announced Nintendo Labo VR Kit will be available on April 12, 2019. If you’re wanting to experience VR with your Nintendo Switch, you won’t have to wait long!
