Announced way out of left field back in January, Nintendo Labo is perhaps one of the strangest and most ambitious projects that Nintendo has released to date. You get a bunch of cardboard sets that work with your Nintendo Switch in fun and unique kind of ways.

And now the Nintendo Labo has hit retail. Nintendo describes it as an "interactive build-and-play experience." You start out with the kits to get a hang for how all this cardboard goodness plays with your Joy-cons and Switch console, but you can start to break out more creativity with DIY after that.

The Variety Kit includes five projects: two Toy-Con RC cars, a Toy-Con fishing rod, a Toy-Con house, a Toy-Con motorbike, and a Toy-Con Piano. The Robot Kit outfits you with a backpack and some other gear so you can play out your gundam style fantasies in real life. With cardboard.

The Nintendo Labo Variety Kit retails for $69.99 and the Robot Kit is $79.99 in the US. Pricing in Canada for the Variety and Robot Kits is set at $89.99 and at $99.99, respectively. From what I can tell, they're well stocked and ready to ship right now.


Here are a couple of useful videos worth checking out with the Verge taking a DIY approach to music and Kotaku building the Labo House from the Variety Kit. Are you going to get the Nintendo Labo for the Switch?
