The Nintendo Labo Toy-Con 04: VR Kit will arrive on April 12, 2019. A smaller Labo: VR Starter Set + Blaster will include the VR Goggles and Blaster Toy-Con, and sell for $39.99.

The complete Nintendo Labo: VR Kit, priced at $79.99 (roughly £60 / AU$113), comes bundled with VR goggles and software, along with five cardboard sets, including Wind Pedal, Camera, Elephant, Bird and Blaster.

The video below goes into more detail about the Nintendo Labo process.

The main component of the new Labo kit is a pair of VR Goggles which work in conjunction with other creations to create a virtual reality experience.

Nintendo Labo kits consist of pre-made cardboard cutouts that gamers must assemble in order to experience the product's software. Anyone who purchases the Starter Kit can buy expansions later to upgrade their VR experience.

You might be asking "What IS Nintendo Labo?". You don't have to use the Switch in VR mode to play with the Labo VR projects though, Nintendo says you can also play without mounting your Switch to your face.

The fourth Labo kit will be a kit themed around virtual reality, and launch on April 12.

Nintendo was keen to emphasise the social nature of the gameplay that the Nintendo Labo: VR Kit will bring: "Nintendo Labo: VR Kit encourages passing around Toy-Con creations among a group of people so everyone in the room can easily join in on the fun". Let us know in the comments.
