Nintendo Labo VR Kit: Toy-Con VR Goggles

This year’s onslaught of Nintendo announcements continues with the Nintendo Labo: VR Kit. Here’s a look at the new virtual reality Toy-Con sets in pictures.

Rumours that Nintendo was dabbling with virtual reality have been circulating for sometime, but we didn’t expect that the company’s first foray into VR since the Virtual Boy would be as a new Labo Toy-Con kit.

Yes, it’s basically Google Cardboard, but it’s Google cardboard with a Nintendo spin, and it will hopefully win us over with some engaging software experiences.

We hate to ask, but...

Thumbsticks has a couple of goals. We want to write interesting articles and cover games that most outlets won't, and we want to give opportunities to new writers and new voices. And right now, with the current state of online publishing? It's tough to meet those goals! We hate to ask, but if you want us to continue writing what others won't, or to keep covering weird indie games, or to be able to give opportunities to new writers – and only if you can afford it – then please consider supporting us on Patreon.
