VR support is now available on Nintendo Switch and this is something accessible to everyone. However, users will have to do some of the work on their own, since they will have to assemble most of the device on their own. However, this isn’t a difficult task and it should feel more like making a puzzle.
“Introducing the most immersive, robust Nintendo Labo kit to date—this one combines DIY fun, pass-and-play multiplayer, and family-friendly play with simple, shareable VR gaming. It even includes a programming tool you can use to create your very own VR games and experiences! Feel your creations come to life as you and your family blast through an alien invasion, create 3D works of art, dive into an oceanic photo safari, soar atop a bird, and go wherever else your imagination takes you,” reads the official description.
The new VR kit is available in multiple versions. For instance, you can choose to get the basic starter pack version which costs £34.99. This option will offer you the headset and a blaster. You can also choose the fully-fledged version that costs £59.99 and comes with a camera, the headset, the blaster, a bird, an elephant and a foot pedal. As random as that list might sound, each piece has a specific purpose.
This new kit has 64 games associated with it, and you can choose to play them without VR as well. More than that, users will also have a chance to shape their own interactive experiences.
According to those who managed to test the games in the VR Plaza, it appears that there isn’t too much violence in them, which makes them suitable for the entire family. For instance, one game makes you attach the headset to the Labo camera so you an take pictures of the aquatic life.
