Nintendo Labo Rocks with Rides: The Toy-Con Vehicle Kit is Coming...

Written by

The Nintendo Labo continues to be one of 2018's biggest surprises, and today comes news that there's yet another kit on the way. Starting September 14, kids can buckle up for a new adventure while sitting in the driver’s seat of a car, a submarine and a plane with the Nintendo Labo: Vehicle Kit. It's officially bringing Rides into the Labo experience, designed to work with the Nintendo Switch system (sold separately). The Toy-Con 03 kit contains materials to build a variety of customizable cardboard creations called Toy-Con, including a Car, a Submarine, a Plane, a Pedal, two Keys and more. By inserting one of the assembled Keys into any of the vehicles, players can enjoy a variety of fun games and activities. Changing between vehicles while adventuring is a cinch – simply pull the Key out of one and slot it into another to transform from an airplane pilot to a submarine captain! Check out the trailer below...

“Nintendo Labo is a collaborative and creative experience designed to encourage imagination in people of all ages,” said Doug Bowser, Nintendo of America’s Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing. “We’re excited to offer a variety of fun gameplay experiences with Vehicle Kit, and look forward to seeing the creative Nintendo Labo community continue to grow.”

I'm already calling Nintendo Labo an early pick for Holiday Wish Guide 2018. It's more than a game, but a true DIY maker experience that gives families new ways to create, customize and play.

Pre-order the Nintendo Labo: Vehicle Kit from select retailers for a suggested retail price of $69.99. Stay tuned to the Nintendo Labo website for more information about Nintendo Labo: Vehicle Kit.
