Nintendo Labo Toy-Con 04: VR Kit is a unique first VR experience kids and families can build themselves!

Nintendo is adding new virtual reality kits to its lineup of cardboard Labo accessories for the Switch, doubling down on the surprising initiative first announced a year ago.

The goggles don't include a strap, and there's also a screen holder included in the kit, allowing players to go through the different games with the VR turned off.

The Nintendo Labo VR Kit launches on April 12th. Pricing is tipped at $39.99 for the Starter Kit + Blaster and $19.99 each for the expansion packs.

The cardboard accessories can be added on to the incredibly popular Nintendo Switch, turning it into a makeshift virtual reality experience.
