Nintendo Reveals Labo Build-It-Yourself Kit Experiences For The Nintendo Switch

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.

The new Nintendo Labo kits for the Nintendo Switch have made a huge splash this week, sending the Nintendo stock to its highest level since 2008.

Nintendo is calling these things "toy-cons" and seems to be looking to encourage creativity, education and play specifically in its younger audience.

Nintendo is calling cardboard devices Toy-Con, which is a play on the Nintendo Switch's controllers, which are called Joy-Con.

Yesterday Nintendo surprised everyone with the presentation of Labo, a new way of playing that involves a set of crafts, whose main material is cardboard, and Switch, its hybrid console. They'll release on April 20, and there are two bundles to consider, as well as some decorations to personalize your cardboard peripherals.

Shipping on 27 April in the United Kingdom, 20 April in the USA, there are three packs available to transform your Nintendo Switch into something quite different.

Labo will engage will take kids away from "virtual reality" and into, well, reality.When is Nintendo Switch Labo released in the UK? The cardboard accessory kits for the Nintendo Switch are insanely creative and a must have for Switch owners.

Will Nintendo Labo Succeed Or Fail? For example, the instructions to put together the cardboard accessories may be too hard to follow, the Toy-Cons feel flimsy or get damaged easily, or the price point may prove to be too high for Nintendo Switch owners.

Nintendo unveiled the line with a slick video, featuring ways the accessories can be customised with stickers and paint.

"This isn't something I'm personally interested [in] but I just love how Nintendo continues to be unique and innovative", tweeted Matt Martin. The result is nearly $1.4 billion in value added to the market capitalization of Nintendo stocks and a new seven-week high.
