Nintendo is bringing virtual reality to Switch with its new Labo: VR Kit.

The Nintendo Labo: VR Kit - Starter Set + Blaster and complete Nintendo Labo: VR Kit will be available in stores on April 12. The base kit will cost $79.99, coming with six cardboard kits to build: the VR goggles, a blaster, a camera, a screen holder, a bird, and, best of all, an elephant.

The video below goes into more detail about the Nintendo Labo process. To help encourage this social gameplay, players simply slip the Nintendo Switch console into the Toy-Con VR Goggles and hold it up to their eyes to explore numerous games and experiences - no head strap needed.

Expansion sets will also be available should you want to add to the starter kit at a later date. A cheaper Starter Set, which includes the cardboard necessary for the Goggles and Blaster will be available soon, and there will be two additional expansion packs. The new Toy-Con VR Goggles can be combined with the other Toy-Con creations, and used for real-world actions.

Nintendo revealed its fourth Toy-Con cardboard kit for Nintendo Switch on Wednesday and it's all about virtual reality.

The failure of the Virtual Boy, though, didn't stop rumours circulating that Nintendo's clever convertible Switch console would be receiving a VR add-on.

Instead, the company plans to offer a VR kit as part of its line of Labo cardboard accessories. The five games include "Super Mario Odyssey", "Mario Kart 8 Deluxe", "Super Mario Party", "Mario Tennis Aces", and "New Super Mario Bros".

However, the company has turned to handy and low-end VR products to shore up its Nintendo Labo series, which started in spring past year.
