What's in the box?
We were lucky enough to go hands-on with Labo ahead of its official announcement some time ago and after that initial swell of hype has faded, we've almost put it to the back of our minds. However, Nintendo doesn't want you to forget about this cardboard marvel and has released a
Well, that's Christmas sorted
Nintendo Labo is only two+ months out, so the Big N is slowly beginning to open up pre-orders across the world and unveil official new items to support all that cardboard folding and creative programming. And that includes unveiling a new line of masking tapes complete with Nintendo-themed patterns. They're currently...
Nintendo Labo might be just the start
We hope you like peripherals, because it seems like Nintendo has plenty more up its considerable sleeve. Check out this interesting line from Takashi Mochizuki's Wall Street Journal report on Nintendo's latest good fortunes: People familiar with the development plans said new peripheral hardware devices...
Big thanks to Amazon!
Update: For whatever reason the BIGTHANKS code is unfortunately no longer working alongside a purchase of Nintendo Labo. However there are lots of fun things you could buy for your Nintendo Switch such as this lovely 200GB Micro SD card. A bargain at only £59.99 we are sure you will agree! <products id="5947"...
With standard cardboard and varied results!
One of the criticisms we've seen time and time again surrounding the Nintendo Labo construction toys is that you could easily just recreate it yourself for mere pennies and a spare half an hour. Well, we thought it would be interesting to see if we really could do as so many claim they can, so we set...
An elusive but profitable market could be won over, says Yuri Litvinenko
For any company whose products happen to be popular among children, the education market has always been one of the most lucrative to target – but it's one which poses a stern challenge, too. A manufacturer has to offer something that appeals to kids and teachers alike, being...
"C'mon why isn't Smash on the switch"
Nintendo Labo is a bit special, as you'll know if you read our hands-on piece from last week. With humble cardboard Nintendo could potentially create a whole new "DIY gaming" gaming sub-genre, and we personally can't wait to get our hands on these lovely kits (again) to create more Toy-Con goodness.
“A box... that says Nintendo on it, they probably would"
Love him, or hate him, Wedbush Securities research analyst Michael Pachter sometimes makes some quite interesting predictions when it comes to Nintendo, and this blast from the past really makes us chuckle. Back in 2012 on a episode of Bonus Round, everyone's...
Ahead of the game, sort of
Nintendo Labo may have taken the gaming world by complete surprise, but one Japanese player was exploring the joys of cardboard construction as early as October last year. Twitter user masaki_samurai posted the following video of his child playing with a specially-constructed gun in Splatoon 2. OK, so it's not...
"No one would have believed us before the announcement"
Nintendo Labo is certainly a left-field product; gaming hardware is normally associated with plastic but Nintendo's new initiative is all about cardboard. This development so confused the cleaning staff at the German Entertainment Software Self-Regulation Body (or USK as it is often...
Welcome to the world of Toy-Con
Hot on the heels of Switch, Nintendo has just announced its latest innovation: Nintendo Labo. To cut a long story short, it's a set of cardboard kits that turn your Switch into, well, anything. In the first pack alone, you can create a set of motorcycle handles, a fishing rod, and even a piano out of car
Now we just need some sticky back plastic
A year ago, the reveal of Nintendo Switch helped swell Nintendo's market value by a staggering $1 billion, and now, mere months before the release of Nintendo Labo, the Japanese firm's worth has shot up by another 2.4%. That might not sound like a big percentage, until you realise that translates into a...
A keen eye reveals all
Although by no means hidden, there are a number of Nintendo Labo constructables that Nintendo revealed in the video that first looks at the product, but hasn't properly acknowledged since, certainly not in a commercial manner. These include a camera, a pump-action gun of some kind, and a bird just to name a few. You...
Paper for cardboard
Nintendo UK has confirmed the pricing or Labo in the United Kingdom. A landing page for both the Variety Pack and Robot Pack have gone live on Nintendo UK's Online Store, with the former costing £59.99 and the latter £69.99. The customisation kit is £8.99. We already know that in North America, th
Go hands on
Nintendo UK has released information relating to a series of Labo workshops it will be holding next month. From February 14th to 17th, the company will be holding events where you can go hands-on with the new product in South Kensington, London. The deadline for registering your interest is February 1st. If you’re a parent/guardian...
"How did Arbys predict it though?"
It's fair to say that many of us were taken by surprise when Nintendo Labo was revealed to an unsuspecting world last night. We were lucky enough to get some hands-on time with Nintendo Labo earlier this week, and it is fantastic fun and brimming with potential. However, it will take a bit of time to win everyone...
Get 'em while they're hot
Although we’ve still got a few months to go until Nintendo Labo is on store shelves, fans are already clamoring to have the toy in their hands. There will be two kits initially available for Labo, one for Project Giant Robot and one with a variety of minigames and Labo constructs. If you head on over to Amazon, both of...
This is only the beginning
Nintendo Labo is an unprecedented idea for the company, yet one that makes perfect sense given how Nintendo has always been one to march to the beat of its own drum. Though two kits were revealed in the initial announcement for Labo, it seems that this is a long term initiative that the company will continue revisiting in...
Update: Better look after your original ones
Update: Following on from post earlier in the day, Nintendo has since clarified its stance on additional cardboard design patterns. IGN France, which originally reported the support for such a long-term feature, reports that Nintendo won't be proving additional cardboard patterns for those that wreck the...
It's all just a little bit of history repeating
No doubt the recent reveal of Nintendo Labo came as a massive surprise to many who were expecting the Japanese veteran to reveal something like Virtual Boy 2 or finally have the ill-fated Vitality Sensor brought back to life for Switch, but when you put down that pitchfork and really stop to think...
First impressions of Nintendo's latest left-field revolution
Whenever an invite is extended to check something new and interesting at Nintendo's offices immediately after a Nintendo Direct broadcast, it's easy to fall into the trap of making rash assumptions. Given that it has just been confirmed that Dark Souls is Switch-bound, we took it almost as...
"Our goal is to put smiles on the faces of everyone Nintendo touches"
Nintendo has lifted the lid on its "new way to play" by announcing Labo, a range of interactive toys which you create yourself. Launching on 27th April, the Labo range currently comprises of two packs, each filled with cardboard panels out of which you can pop-out shapes and...
"For kids and those who are kids at heart"
An interesting tweet has just gone live on Nintendo's Japanese Twitter account which teases a "new way to play". The announcement is coming at 7AM tomorrow morning in Japan, which is 10PM in the UK and 4PM CST. Nintendo UK has also issued a Facebook post, stating that this is for "kids and those who are...
