Nintendo, the creators of Wii and the GameCube, announced that they will launch on April 20th, the “Labo,” a new accessory for the Nintendo Switch, according to theverge.com

This product is made of mostly cardboard and can be shaped into multiple objects such as a fishing rod and a motorcycle which then can be controlled by the Switch device, reported nme.com

“Cardboard that’s precut for you to pop out and construct remarkably elaborate contraptions with moving parts and buttons, like a fishing rod with an actual reel, or a motorcycle handlebar with a working throttle and handbrake. Then you put your creations—called Toy-Con—together with a Nintendo Switch, and things get wild, in ways that you can probably imagine (combining the fishing rod with the Switch screen for a fishing mini-game…” stated gq.com.

Once Labo is assembled and connected to the Nintendo Switch, it allows players to play various mini games. For example, for a car to be able to move, the controllers of the Nintendo Switch must be plugged into the car; the car will then move because the controllers respond to the users’ movement on the Nintendo Switch screen, according to nme.com.

Once launched, the Nintendo Labo Kits will sell for $69.99 for the Variety Kit and the Robot Kit will sell for $79.99, reported to polygon.com.

Fusajiro Yamauchi founded Nintendo in Kyoto, Japan on September 23,1889.   Nintendo originally started out as a small company which sold Japanese trading cards.

    That was an awesome article. I’m so excited for Labo I’m going to preorder it. It looks like Nintendo can beat Sony and Samsung with their Virtual Reality with just cardboard. Go Nintendo!🎮👾

    It is really cool that they invented this. A lot of games are just not interactive, unlike this game which makes it so much more fun.

    Add Nintendo Labo to the Smash Bros. roster!!!!! New Smash Bros with Inklings in Nintendo Switch. Dream come true!

    I think it would be cool for the Labo to be the gag character too. (If you don’t know there’s a gag character in every smash game. The first games was Jigglypuff. Melee’s was Mr. Game & Watch. Brawl’s was R.O.B. Wii U/3DS’s was Duck Hunt not Wii Fit Trainer.
