Nintendo Gets Creative With Labo – An Interactive Creation Tool for Nintendo Switch

Nintendo Gets Creative With Labo – An Interactive Creation Tool for Nintendo Switch

Nintendo teased the world early Wednesday morning, stoking the fires of anticipation for the announcement of a new way of interacting with the Nintendo Switch console, “for kids or kids at heart“.

While speculation ran wild throughout the day (as it does with any impending Nintendo announcement) I don’t think anyone was quite prepared for what Nintendo finally did reveal: Labo.

Labo is an interactive creation tool for the Nintendo Switch that let’s you build a variety of objects out of cardboard, and then lets you bring those Labo creations to life, through the power of the Nintendo Switch.

A piece touting the project in the London Guardian that appeared shortly after Nintendo’s reveal video aptly describes Labo as an “interactive cardboard Lego

Each Labo will provide users with a set of perforated cardboard sheets and a cartridge, which provides on-screen instructions for building a variety of things, such as a fishing pole, piano, or a robot suit. Software included on the cart will allow you to power the cardboard devices and interact with them.

Nintendo’s introduction video showed the fishing pole – complete with a fishing line – fully able to reel. Players can pop in a Joycon controller and interact with a fishing game on the Labo cart.

Labo will be sold in two sets: the Variety Set, which features a number of different inventions to construct, and the Robo Kit, which transforms you into a giant mech.

The sets will arrive on April 20th and will retail for $69.99 and $79.99 respectively.

Take a look at Nintendo’s reveal trailer for Labo below:

What are your thoughts on Labo? Is it another stroke of innovative brilliance by Nintendo, or are you put off by spending money on cardboard? Let us know in the comments section below.
