Nintendo Labo introduced for the Switch

Nintendo Labo “build-and-play” kits revealed for Nintendo Switch

That's why these new gaming add-ons are so exciting.

Together with the Nintendo Switch system, the Nintendo Labo kits provide the tools and technology to make DIY creations.

On April 20, Nintendo Switch owners will receive the option to customise their playing experience with a range of build-your-own cardboard devices. Here's everything you need to know about them.

Nintendo Labo is set to released on April 20, 2018. For example, once you craft your 13-key piano - following the step-by-step instructions on the cardboard pieces - you attach your Nintendo Switch console and the right Joy-Con controller and can then play music by pressing the keys.

To see what it looks like, check out the introductory video for Nintendo Labo below.

They wouldn't cease and desist, so now President Trump is targeting libel laws in an effort to silence his critics. Boyle is a long-time Bannon protege who has shaped Breitbart's political coverage.

Assembled from sheets of cardboard, the accessories are created to interact with the Switch and its Joy-Con controllers in a variety of ways.

Some fans are also speculating that the camera peripheral could be used for a Nintendo Switch version of Pokemon Snap. But because this is Nintendo, there is a bit more to the product than there appears to be at first. This allows players to build and customize their own accessories. The main difference here is that kids get to build these extras themselves instead of being handed something pre-made.

This is a huge step for the Nintendo Switch as it was considered a risk when it was launched.

A Google cardboard kit is only assembled once, it doesn't have moving parts, and it still gets worn and tattered pretty fast. Some will be nothing more than additions to your collection of controller accessories you probably already have enough of from the days of the Nintendo Wii, but some could make for some educational opportunities to understand how the mechanics of various contraptions work. This will include 2 RC cars, a fishing rod, a house, a motorbike and a piano.

There's another kit where users can create an interactive robot suit complete with straps for a kid's hands and feet. It will cost $79.99 and also includes a companion Game Card to insert into the Switch. This isn't a creation kit like the other two. By mounting the Joy-Cons into the costume's backpack and docking the Switch, players are able to control the mini-games on the TV. It comes with two tape rolls, two sticker sheets and two stencil sheets. The Variety Kit will carry an MSRP of $99.95 Dollars. Will Labo be the kind of hit that drives Nintendo stock to even greater heights? It's not clear when they will start selling Labo.
