Out of nowhere, Nintendo just announced a VR (yes virtual reality) package for their Nintendo Switch! However it’s a new dimension for Nintendo Lab. It will be released on April 12th and comes in 2 versions.
The Nintendo Lab: VR package is the fourth package in the Nintendo Lab series. With Nintendo Lab, players can make cardboard creations called Toy-Con, play various games and discover how the technology of the Nintendo Switch brings it all to life.
It contains six new Toy-Con creations to make, including the Toy-Con-VR glasses. These VR glasses are used in combination with the other creations, encouraging players to make natural movements and gestures to communicate with the gaming world and thereby enhance the gaming experience. Stop an alien invasion with the Toy-Con stunner, dive into a colorful ocean and take pictures of marine life with the Toy-Con camera and so much more.
The Nintendo Lab: VR package is easy to use by multiple players, so everyone can join in the room. Players only need to place the Nintendo Switch system in the Toy-Con-VR glasses and keep these VR glasses in front of their eyes to play all kinds of games. You do not need a headband.
It will be available in two versions: one with all Toy-Con creations and one with less Toy-Con projects:
