New Nintendo accessories are made of cardboard

DIY experience Nintendo Labo launches on Switch this April

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.

On the heels of the Nintendo Labo unveiling, the DIY cardboard accessories and associated software for the Switch are now available to pre-order on Amazon. With this set, you actually wear a cardboard suit containing Joy-Con controllers in the headset and backpack.

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.

Nintendo has revealed a new interactive experience for the Nintendo Switch, the so-called Nintendo Labo. 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.

Building these devices is supposed to be just as fun as playing the games, enabling kids to interact with Labo a more tactile and "real" way.

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.

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.

Nintendo Labo launches on April 27, 2018 with two kits: the Variety Kit (£60), which'll feature a remote-controlled vehicle, fishing rod, house, motorbike, and piano, and the Robot Kit (£70), which has everything you need to put together a wearable robot suit that uses motion control for you play with in-game. This package will be sold at a price of $79.99 Dollars.

One is the Variety Kit which comes with the piano, fishing rod and a few other creations. Being sold separately is another, larger and wearable piece of kit that allows users to control a robot using intuitive motion input.
