Nintendo LABO Cardboard Creations Unveiled, Launches April 20th

As you can imagine video game Twitter reacted to Nintendo's latest experiment. You guessed it - Super Mario Bros.

To give parents a complete idea of what Nintendo Labo offers, Nintendo is holding two Labo Studio events. Now, kids can add a DIY element to their video game world.

Labo will engage will take kids away from "virtual reality" and into, well, reality.When is Nintendo Switch Labo released in the UK? The IR Motion Camera in the right Joy-Con "detects which keys are pressed and translates them into unique notes that are heard through the console", says Nintendo in a press release. Some of the objects you can craft are 13-key piano, fishing pole, or a motorbike and then use your Nintendo Switch console to power them up.

If Darkest Dungeon and Xenoblade Chronicles DLC aren't really your thing, there are plenty more games to check out today and into next week.

If you still finding this hard to believe peep the video below it will totally blow your mind.

Nintendo Labo will launch on April 20 with the Variety and Robot kits being the first available. This will include 2 RC cars, a fishing rod, a house, a motorbike and a piano.

As games console manufacturers go, Nintendo has always been sort of like a mad uncle. "Catch one of much exotic fish shown swimming on the Nintendo Switch screen by casting your Fishing Rod and unwinding the reel to lower the hook".

The Robot Kit, with its strings that attach to your hands and feet, looks particularly delicate.

The Nintendo Labo is described as modular sheets of cardboard which are created to be able to interact with the Nintendo Switch console and Joy-Con controllers. Each of those interacts with the console in some way, whether you slide the Switch screen in, pop in the Joy-Con controllers, or wear the pieces to turn yourself into a full-sized controller.

The Variety Kit will contain the cartridge and cardboard parts and accessories and will feature 5 different games.

You know, I'm starting to think this Switch doo-hickey might be catching on.

You can get your hands on it from 27 April this year in the United Kingdom (one week after the US).

Nintendo has "kids and those who are kids at heart" hyped up with the announcement of a new "interactive experience" on Wednesday, January 17, and what the company planned isn't what we expected.
