If you haven’t heard about what Nintendo Labo can do, check out this short video on it first:

Each kit comes with software for the Nintendo Switch along with a variety of cardboard pieces which you fold together to create accessories for your Joy-Cons. Putting the “Toy-Con” accessories together is easy with provided instructions, even a kid could do it.

The Variety Kit gives you the power to create an RC car, a fishing rod, a house, a motorbike and a piano which you can then use in various games with your Nintendo Switch. Likewise, the Robot Kit lets you create a wearable suit and assume control of a robot in a variety of mini-games on the Switch.
