WE LOVE LABO VR!

Hey green gang! Toxic writer Sam here 🙋‍♂️

Look and load with the buildable Blaster!

It’s been a busy week here at Toxic HQ – and on Tuesday 9th April, I hopped over to London’s colossal carnival of cool kids, KidZania, to check out Nintendo’s BRAND NEW Labo Toy-Con 04 VR Kit!

In case you haven’t heard about it – it’s Virtual Reality, but made for YOU.

See-through sorcery that puts YOU in a 3D world. Yep. It’s awesome. Check out this eye-popping official video:

This Virtual Reality cuts out all of the wires and fiddly bits!

it’s not too pixelly (super clear!) – and the only problem I spotted is that some of these Toy-Con gadgets can only be made for right-handed play. I’m a LEFTY legend, but I still had loads of fun… and we think you will you!

Here’s another picture of me looking silly!

Team Toxic gets a birds-eye view!

There are so many games to try out! If you know your Nintendo, you’ll spot all sorts of super secrets. There’s HUGE chunks of WarioWare-style wacky challenges and Rhythm Heaven-looking cartoony chaos.

And what’s this…? If you’re lucky enough to have a copy of Super Mario Odyssey or #bestgameever Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, you can dive into those classics in 3D – for free! NICE.

Nintendo’s been playing around with some really interesting, experimental ideas – and now they want you to get crafty and creative too!

…And even if you’re not a pirate or a cyclops (…or, like Thor in Avengers: Infinity War, with an evil Asgardian sister attacking your eyeballs!) you can play it all on a TV too… no special specs required.

‘V.R.’ VERY excited to get back to our goggles!

Nintendo Labo: VR Kit – Starter Set comes bundled with the Blaster (that one’s £34.99) and the total Toy-Con treasure trove is £69.99. You can pick up all the Labo packs and loads of your other fave games right HERE.

Happy gaming, green gang!
