Nintendo's Latest Video Game Accessory Is A $70 Piece Of Cardboard

January 19, 2018
The "Switch" is as popular as ever, but you know Nintendo is a company that will not rest on its laurels.  The video game giant has just unveiled its latest gaming accessory, a project they are calling "Nintendo Labo." Essentially, the Labo is a series of sets of cardboard cutouts marketed as "a new line of interactive build-and-play experiences designed to inspire kids and those who are kids-at-heart." Kids can fold and manipulate these cardboard cutouts and fold them into various toys and objects, like a 13-key piano or a fishing rod. You pair with the Labo with a Switch console, opening it to a seemingly endless possibility of combinations of interactive fun. Of course, this kind of innovation like cardboard will not be inexpensive.  The Switch console alone will run you about $300, and upon its relase, the Labo will retail for $69.99 for the Variety Kit, and $79.99 for the Robot Kit. The product was designed to encourage the imaginations of kids, which is who it's intended for. The Nintendo Labo will be available in stores April 20! Via Guide Live
