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

DIY experience Nintendo Labo launches on Switch this April

Nintendo Labo is a line of constructable cardboard sets designed for the Switch, and it just might be Nintendo's next big hit.

"For example, you can make a functioning 13-key piano that brings your musical arrangements to life once the Nintendo Switch console and Right Joy-Con controller are inserted", Nintendo explains in the announcement.

According to a Financial Times report, the value of Nintendo in the financial market increased 2.4% after the presentation of Labo, which translates into a significant amount of $1.4 billion.

"Few companies today can elicit the same amount of childlike wonder as Nintendo", wrote Engadget senior editor Devindra Hardawar, who added that he felt the same way when the Nintendo Switch was initially revealed.

The kits are made up of modular cardboard components that can be built into various real-world items "specially created to interact with the Nintendo Switch" and allow gamers to "relive their childhood".

The new devices are set to be released on April 20, with a starter set called a Variety Kit, which will be sold for $69.99.

Though Nintendo Labo doesn't release until April 20, if you're a parent with kids between the ages of six and 12 and live near either San Francisco or New York City, you can enter for a chance to attend a special hands-on event. Along with strings going to your hands and your feet, the kit turns you into a walking death machine, and the included game lets you run around a city and destroy enormous buildings before turning into a fast-moving vehicle - Nintendo hasn't toyed with virtual reality since the days of the Virtual Boy, but this might be the next best thing. The cardboard accessory kits for the Nintendo Switch are insanely creative and a must have for Switch owners.

There are several factors that may cause Nintendo Labo to fail. Here's all you need to know about the cardboard "Toy-Cons".

Forbes' Dave Thier then reminds us all that the Nintendo Switch may have easily failed as well, as Nintendo continues to push for uniqueness to differentiate itself from Sony and Microsoft.

Nintendo unveiled the line with a slick video, featuring ways the accessories can be customised with stickers and paint. The result is nearly $1.4 billion in value added to the market capitalization of Nintendo stocks and a new seven-week high.
