Nintendo Labo’s VR Kit will have more than 60 games

Nintendo Labo’s new VR kit looks even better in action

Aside from the joy of building each of the Labo VR kits, and understanding exactly how they all work, it doesn't yet feel like there's anything distinctly Nintendo about this new virtual reality experience that could really distinguish it from the competition yet. The Nintendo Labo VR Kit is set for a release on April 12th, 2019.

So for the big Toy-Con Blaster, there's a videogame called Blaster where you have to battle an alien invasion with giant bosses to contend with. Instead of a bulky bit of bespoke plastic, Nintendo Labo: VR Kit takes the Nintendo Switch and yet again twists its capabilities in new and interesting ways. Many of these experiences can be enjoyed using only the Toy-Con VR Goggles and Nintendo Switch system. To start of positive, Nintendo showed off an underwater setting, and since there is no light and camera tracking, you can move anywhere you want and still not lose effectiveness or quality- that's pretty neat.

Today, Nintendo of America uploaded a trailer for the Nintendo Labo VR Kit that, technically, would have helped promote it when they originally posted that one picture explaining it all.

There's also a physics-based Marble Run game, where you set up puzzles and pass the headset to a friend for them to solve. With the regular Nintendo Labo games already widely criticised for being short with a tiny scope, we can only imagine that these minigames are superbly condensed, maybe even to the point of what you'd see in a Mario Party or WarioWare game. When using the Toy-Con Bird, players can flap its wings. Or Kablasta, where players can challenge a friend to competitive hippo feeding by flinging different types of fruit. Then there are timed races to compete as well, requiring you to soar through checkpoints. The next feature shown off was the wind pedal - You control a frog and when you step down on the wind pedal, he will jump.

Amazon to launch mobile video ads, threatening Google and Facebook
Brands will spend almost $16 billion on mobile video advertising this year, up 22.6 per cent from 2018, according to EMarketer . Bloomberg is reporting that the company is beta testing putting ads on its mobile apps.

On top of all of this, there's also a VR Plaza that includes 64 mini-games. It's a good option for kids and families who want to dive in to the full experience. You can even import the VR Plaza games into the Garage to edit them yourself. And for the budding videogame developers out there, Toy-Con Garage VR is a new tool that allows players to create their own VR content.

This might just be from my boring adult perspective, but I can see most of the minigames in all four of the Labo kits losing their fun after a few plays. You're looking at $119.95 for the entire VR kit, $59.95 for the goggles/blaster and $29.95 for each expansion.

Nintendo Labo: VR Kit: The complete Nintendo Labo: VR Kit includes the Nintendo Switch software and materials to build all six Toy-Con projects - the Toy-Con VR Goggles, Toy-Con Blaster, Toy-Con Camera, Toy-Con Bird, Toy-Con Wind Pedal and Toy-Con Elephant - as well as a Screen Holder and Safety Cap.

Nintendo Labo: VR Kit - Expansion Set 1***:Expansion Set 1 includes the components needed to build the Toy-Con Elephant and Toy-Con Camera.
