For those interested in buying the Nintendo Labo Toy-Con 04: VR Kit, it will be available on April 12 for the Nintendo Switch. The basic starter kit includes the VR goggles and blaster sets. The full kit will include the Toy-Cons mentioned above as well as a Toy-Con Bird, Toy-Con Wind Pedal and Toy-Con Elephant for $79.99. Nintendo of America president Doug Bowser said this is meant to encourage interactions among players, virtual or not. Although this isn't VR, it's similar in a sense because you'll be controlling the in-game robot using your movements, more akin to how the Nintendo Wii works. Including a pair of VR goggles, a blaster, camera, bird, wind pedal, and an elephant.
Switch owners can turn their console into a VR system using a cardboard kit.
