Prepare to make, play and discover in a whole new way when Nintendo Labo: VR Kit for Nintendo Switch launches on 12 April.

Nintendo's last venture into early virtual reality didn't end well: The Virtual Boy was a clunky single-colour device which needed to be used on a table stand - plans to have a strap which turned it into a true headset having been ditched over concerns that users would injure themselves if they were free-roaming. "We wanted to design an experience that encourages both virtual and real-world interactions among players through passing around Toy-Con creations". The VR Kit will retail for $79.99. Anyone who purchases the Starter Kit can buy expansions later to upgrade their VR experience. Each set is priced individually at $19.99.

Nintendo is once again trying its hand at virtual reality, this time with its Switch console and Labo construction platform. "These 'Toy-Con" kits join the three previous releases; the Variety kit, Robot kit, and Vehicle kit. A smaller Labo: VR Starter Set + Blaster will include the VR Goggles and Blaster Toy-Con, and sell for $39.99.
