Nintendo to release Labo Toy-Con 04 VR Kit

It was rumoured for some time, now it seems that VR fans are finally getting what they want as Nintendo Labo Toy-Con 04: VR Kit releases this April.

Check below for the PR details...

"Nintendo Labo: VR Kit offers six new Toy-Con creations to build, including the Toy-Con VR Goggles, which combine with the other creations to allow players to interact with the virtual world through imaginative real-world actions. Fend off an alien invasion with the Toy-Con Blaster, visit a colorful in-game ocean and snap photos of the sea life with the Toy-Con Camera and so much more.

Nintendo Labo: VR Kit encourages passing around the Toy-Con creations among a group of people so everyone in the room can easily join in on the fun. To help encourage this social gameplay, players simply slip the Nintendo Switch console into the Toy-Con VR Goggles and hold it up to their eyes to explore numerous games and experiences – no head strap needed.

Nintendo Labo: VR Kit: Available at a suggested retail price of £79.99, the complete Nintendo Labo: VR Kit 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.

Nintendo Labo: VR Kit – Starter Set + Blaster: Available at a suggested retail price of only £39.99, the Starter Set 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 – Expansion Set 1: Available at a suggested retail price of £19.99, Expansion Set 1 includes the Toy-Con Elephant and Toy-Con Camera.

Nintendo Labo: VR Kit – Expansion Set 2: Available at a suggested retail price of £19.99, Expansion Set 2 includes the Toy-Con Wind Pedal and Toy-Con Bird."

While I realise that I'm not the target audience for this, I can't help but be more than a little bemused by it all as it looks like a little bit of a fad to me personally.

The only positive thing for me, would be if Nintendo decided to release a Virtual Boy type stand to use with the goggles so that we could at least get some Virtual Boy games on the Switch.

What do you make of all this though? Is this something that kids are more likely to be into? Or does it have more potential applications in the future beyond mere whimsical value?
