Nintendo Has Announced the Nintendo Labo VR Kit! The Kit will come in starter, and full set configurations and feature a total of six new Toy-Con projects. The sets release on April 12th.


Nintendo quietly announced today that a new Nintendo Labo Kit, Kit 04: VR Kit, will release on April 12th, 2019. This kit will introduce six new Toy-Con projects and will allow the user to create VR experiences using the Nintendo Switch.

The Starter Set + Blaster will contain two Toy-Con projects, and retail for 39.99, and the full set will contain all six projects and retail for 79.99. There will also be expansion kits containing the four Toy-Con sets missing from the VR Kit + Blaster set.
Nintendo Labo: VR Kit will launch in retail stores with two primary configurations, one that includes all Toy-Con creations and one that includes a smaller selection of projects to get started:

 Nintendo Labo: VR Kit: Available at a suggested retail price of $79.99, 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. It’s a good option for kids and families who want to dive in to the full experience.

 Nintendo Labo: VR Kit – Starter Set + Blaster: Available at a suggested retail price of only $39.99, the Starter Set includes the Nintendo Switch software, plus all the components to build the Toy-Con VR Goggles and Toy-Con Blaster, as well as the Screen Holder and Safety Cap. The Starter Set is a great entry point into the world of Nintendo Labo VR.
 Players that own the Starter Set can purchase the following optional expansion sets to expand their experience:
 
 Nintendo Labo: VR Kit – Expansion Set 1**: Available at a suggested retail price of $19.99, Expansion Set 1 includes the Toy-Con Elephant and Toy-Con Camera.
 Nintendo Labo: VR Kit – Expansion Set 2**: Available at a suggested retail price of $19.99, Expansion Set 2 includes the Toy-Con Wind Pedal and Toy-Con Bird.
 The inventive Toy-Con Garage mode – included as part of all Nintendo Labo software – returns with Nintendo Labo: VR Kit, offering basic programming tools for players to experiment with. More information about the experiences offered by Nintendo Labo: VR Kit will be revealed in the future.
 
 The Nintendo Labo: VR Kit – Starter Set + Blaster and complete Nintendo Labo: VR Kit will be available in stores on April 12. The two expansion sets will be available exclusively online at https://store.nintendo.com/.

The Labo VR set had been expected to be coming since mid-February when roumors from insider sources claimed that VR was coming to Nintendo Switch in 2019 or 2020. Initial rumors suggested a VR headset similar to the Vive or Playstation VR, it was later reported that the VR would be a new Labo Kit. At this time it is unknown if this will be Nintendo's only VR offering for the Switch, or if something else more in line with a full headset could be in the works for the future.
