Nintendo has announced Nintendo Labo cardboard-building concept VR Kit for Switch, which combines the physical and digital gameplay of Nintendo Labo with necessary virtual reality technology to create a shareable and straightforward virtual reality experience. It looks like they have brought in a rather unusual way in the form of the Nintendo Labo VR Kit.

While rumors of a Nintendo Switch VR accessory have been circulating for over a year, perceived technical limitations of the Switch made it seem more pipe dream than a potential product. But by pairing a seemingly less intensive VR experience with its cardboard DIY accessories, the company may have discovered a way to circumvent the burdensome processing requirements associated with today’s VR-capable machines.

The Nintendo VR headset is easy to use, without any head-strap affixed. This means that users can easily hold it to their eyes for more shorter and casual experiences.

We wanted to design an experience that encourages both virtual and real-world interactions among players. – Doug Bowser, Nintendo of America’s chief

The Nintendo Labo VR Kit is to be priced at $80 for the full set. This includes the software, goggles, and five cardboard designs that are shown on the box. There will also be a cheaper starter kit priced at $40 which includes the software, goggles, and the blaster/rifle design. The additional designs are expected to be made available later on as an expansion.

The Nintendo Labo VR kits are set to arrive on April 12th. Pre-orders are available now.
