Nintendo shows off more Labo

How Nintendo Labo is using the Switch's IR Camera and HD Rumble features

Nintendo has lifted the lid on a bunch of new videos detailing its upcoming cardboard Nintendo Labo accessories, offering the first in-depth glance at how the various Toy-Cons will function. They're a little more in depth than I'd have imagined - particularly the piano and motorbike bits of the Variety kit. The interactive instructions on your Switch system take you through the assembly process step-by-step.

One new feature that is part of the software included with each Nintendo Labo kit is Toy-Con Garage. Each one features the Toy-Con Garage, which offers users a chance to soak up some fundamental principles of technology in a 'fun and accessible way'. This is what's going to elevate Labo from a novelty to a legitimate building toy.

The invent and customize sections show how people are able to come up with their own creations.

Both the Nintendo Labo kits launch April 20, exclusively for the Nintendo Switch. The Variety Kit will be available at a suggested retail price of $69.99, and the Robot Kit will be available at a suggested retail price of $79.99. You can either smash through a city, or challenge another Robot-Kit wearing friends to a two-player local battle.

Nintendo Labo encourages you to use your imagination and creativity to customize your cardboard Toy-Con creations in a variety of ways.

The other big bit of information was on how the Labo robot Kit will work. The Piano will not only allow for different effects, but will even let you cut out waveforms from cardboard to create your own sounds.

Toy-Con Motorbike: Grab ahold of your newly constructed handlebars and race through different tracks, challenging CPU opponents or collecting targets across mountainous terrain. Creative types can even create their own custom tracks!

Toy-Con Fishing Rod: There are many exotic fish to discover, and some of the deep-ocean fish are particularly tricky to catch. The Robot Kit video shows an Arcade Mode and a player playing as the robot that destroys buildings and UFOs. Some of these ways to interact include: mine cart races, bowling and jump rope as well as generally befriending the houses inhabitant.

Toy-Con RC Car: The RC Car is full of unique and surprising features. The cars can also be programmed via the IR sensor in the right Joy-Con to drive along a specific route.
