Has your child ever wanted to step inside their favorite video game? Well, now they can thanks to Nintendo Labo! This interactive series of DIY kits allows young gameplayers and innovators to actually build their own robots, vehicles and accessories out of cardboard, which hook up to the Nintendo Switch. These real-world creations are then brought to life inside the game!
The newest addition to the lineup is the Nintendo Labo: Vehicle Kit. This kit provides the opportunity to build a car, submarine, plane, pedal, keys, and a spray can. While the templates and materials are all provided for each of these projects, it’s just a jumping off point for what you can do with the kit. Everything in the Nintendo Labo: Vehicle Kit is customizable, and once a player has gotten comfortable creating their cardboard projects, they can start experimenting with using household objects such as notebooks or sponges to create their own controllers. And the customization spills over from the real world into the gameplay: The spray can project interacts with in-game vehicles to create custom paint jobs.
Fans of all ages have embraced the originality and creativity of Nintendo Labo,” says Doug Bowser, Nintendo of America’s Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing. “Nintendo Labo: Vehicle Kit expands the possibilities of what Nintendo Labo can do, with a variety of fun gameplay modes and deeper programming elements to explore.”
The Nintendo Labo: Vehicle Kit comes with games such as Adventure and Rally that provide immersive worlds to explore by land, sea and air using your shiny new vehicles. Each vehicle handles differently, with its own controls and special moves. Do a barrel roll and shoot missiles in the plane, pop a wheelie and deploy weapons in the car, and launch a grappling hook from your submarine while you cruise through the colorful land of Adventure. This large world is filled with snowy mountains, archaeological ruins and a futuristic city, with various activities awaiting you in each location. Or take part in automotive battles in Rally and try your hand at a game of off-road racing that packs a literal punch! In addition, the Nintendo Labo: Vehicle Kit is also compatible with Mario Kart 8 Deluxe for Nintendo Switch.
Retailing for $69.99, the Nintendo Labo: Vehicle Kit is the perfect holiday gift for gamers of all ages. Get yours today on Amazon! And if you don’t have a Nintendo Switch yet, be sure to read our post on why you should get one!
