CAPE TOWN – Nintendo has announced that it will be expanding its Labo offering which is the cardboard DIY kits that Nintendo offers for its Switch console by adding a build your own virtual reality (VR) kit.

Nintendo said in a statement: "With the new Nintendo Labo VR Kit, there’s more to Make, Play, and Discover together than ever before. Nintendo Labo Toy-Con 04: VR Kit is a unique first VR experience kids and families can build themselves!"

The Starter Set + Blaster kit provides an action-packed introduction to the experience. You can then add to the fun with the expansion Sets.

The VR-based kits will all go on sale on 12 April in South Africa but unfortunately, no local pricing has been confirmed as yet.
