Sam Byford  The Verge

For anyone who can not wait to punch out the perforated designs and turn the hybrid console into a. erm. piano, or something, the first two kits in the range are now available to pre-order at various US retail sites, ahead of their April 2018 release.

Within the Variety kit, going for $70, Nintendo is offering 2 RC cars, a fishing rod, a house, a motorbike, and shown most prominently in its ad for Labo, a 13-key cardboard piano.

And then this is available in the Robot Kit.

For those in North America, you can already preorder either the Variety Kit or Robot Kit to arrive on its April 20 release date. Instructions on how to create the accessories, which Nintendo has named Toy-Cons, appear on the Switch's screen.

With Nintendo Labo, building is just as much fun as playing. Once you feel a vibration from the Joy-Con inserted in the reel, you must tug the Fishing Rod upward and crank the reel quickly to try and complete the catch!

See some of the options below, and definitely have a look at the trailer and official site for a better idea of what to expect from the Nintendo Labo. In this case, Labo combines papercraft and digital mini-games, blurring the lines of analog play and screenplay, making the Switch-a unusual, half-portable, half-home console-even more unique.

Once you've built them, all you have to do is add the Nintendo Switch's various components and you've got yourself a brand-new creation. Leaning your body or turning the handlebars left and right controls the motorbike. These appendages were created to provide interaction between the console and its Joy-Con controllers in a number of ways. The sound knobs are detected and deciphered by stripes that are on the back so that the camera can tell the difference. Called Nintendo Labo, the first wave of the buildable "Toy-Con" range from a small remote control auto to a wearable robot jet-pack.
