The next Labo kit is a VR headset launching in April

So far the Labo toys have been a rewarding - if time consuming - investment, and it will be interesting to see if the trend continues next month.

A brand-new Nintendo Labo kit has been announced by Nintendo, bringing VR experiences to the Nintendo Switch; say "hello" to Nintendo Labo Toy-Con 04: VR Kit! Rather, the latest addition to its line of Labo cardboard accessories will be a VR kit that you can use to morph your Switch and Joy-Con controllers into a makeshift headset.

Not wishing to make people double dip, owners of the starter kit can pick up two expansion sets for $19.99 each.

The new Toy-Con is available in two configurations: the complete VR Kit set includes the Switch software and materials to build all six Labo VR projects-VR Goggles, Blaster, Camera, Bird, Wind Pedal, and Elephant. The first includes a Toy-Con Elephant and Toy-Con Camera, while the second has a Toy-Con Wind Pedal and Toy-Con Bird.

Nintendo claims that by eliminating the head strap of most VR wearables and opting for devices that players hold up to their faces, it will make for a more social experience.

Slated for release April 12, Nintendo will offer two packages and two expansion packs for its Labo: VR kits. "We wanted to design an experience that encourages both virtual and real-world interactions among players through passing around Toy-Con creations". It offers basic programming tools for you to play around with when making creations. If the majority of these kits will seem a little too heavy on your wallet initially, there's also a starter kit that only comes bundled with the VR goggles and blaster. One includes all Toy-Con creations and the other is a smaller, introductory kit.

The VR kit will be available in North America on April 12. If you want either of the expansion sets, you'll be able to find them exclusively on Nintendo's online store. The Starter Set is a great entry point into the world of Nintendo Labo VR.
