Doug Bowser, Nintendo of America’s Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing, said the company was excited to offer fun gameplay experiences with the latest kit and was looking forward to seeing the Nintendo Labo community continue to grow.
Are you excited more Nintendo Labo kits are on the way? Will you be picking this one up on release? Tell us below.

I'm calling it now: These will ALL be compatible with MK8D.
Also, Rocket League: Golf Edition.
Here's the big September game folks. Right alongside that online service they want us to buy apparently.
I still haven't built my house or piano yet so there's no way I'm buying.... Wait. A submarine? I am so totally buying this.
These things are all cool in theory but the kids build them and play with them one day maybe 2 then they sit. This does look cool though.
Nintendo, leave my wallet alone!
I guess this is what Kimishima meant about more unannounced Switch software this year.
Sigh... as expected.
@Spoony_Tech Hmm.. If that's the case then it sounds like the interactive aspect is not developed enough so that the kids will want to continue to use them. Is the software not all that engaging?
The actual software in the game looks more interesting than the software in the previous 2 Labo kits.
Aside from the obvious car/plane/submarine transformation gimmick, it seems like you can do stuff like slice down trees, toss bombs, shoot targets, hunt for sunken treasure, race with others, box against others, golf (Rocket League-style), fly through objectives, etc.
as i said in the switch thread, this looks far better than the other two.
i'll pick it up, not at day 1 though. that's dragon quest month!
I am literally giddy, I’m so excited. Too bad I’m broke, I’d preorder it now!
I'll stick with Dragon Quest and Xnoblade 2 DLC in September
@Knuckles-Fajita omg just stop with the online service bashing, it's so old. What other gaming console provides free online service?
How does Nintendo keep convincing me to buy stuff I don’t want? Labo. Minecraft Story Mode. 2DS. WHY DO I KEEP BUYING THIS CRAP???!!!
I have to admit this looks pretty cool for Labo, but I'm still not gonna buy it. Still way too overpriced IMO.
@Not_Soos eh, there's prolly more on the way
looks pretty sweet!
It’s genius. The people in the ad are the people they want as primary customers. Parents with kid(s). Guilt wridden by the screen time thing, this feels ok. They’re making something !
@Grant007 I didnt bash the online service. I simply stated the obvious.
This is the game releasing in September alongside the other notable release: the online service that they as a business would obviously expect us to buy.
Now if I said the online service was bad or overpriced then sure id be bashing it. But ive kept and will keep my opinion of that seperate
@MushHill_Act1-1 Like a Wii U port or something. Hope I'm wrong.
Still waiting for Deemo to add Labo piano support before I run out and buy a kit. I think Labo is really neat but I'm definitely not the target demographic.
@roboshort I do think the software need to be better. Even in this video above while it looks cool what are you really doing? It does look more involved then the previous 2 kits though.
and when does Diddy Kong Racing come with this?!
@Spoony_Tech Is this an assumption or an observation?
@Likethepear "On that day, mankind received a grim reminder... we lived in fear of Reggie and were disgraced to live in these cages we called a budget."
It does look kinda more neater than the other 2 games. Mind you, this series need to be less tech demo-y and more a full on experience that'll last more than an afternoon or 2.
Looks like the right step forward for LABO though expensive. It should have MK8 compatibility since day one. Let’s check those reviews!!!
@Minch We have both available kits. My kids played the robot one no more then 2 days and now it sits in a corner. To me the software just doesn't give enough incentive to keep coming back. It's not like a controller you just pick up and start playing either. It take energy to put this robot suit on lol. I do like the custumization of the on screen robot though. You can tweek color and sounds of it.
The other kit has a bit more going for it and does get used by my 5 year old a bit more. He likes the fishing game but there's not a whole lot to it. My daughter played with the piano for a bit as well. These games need to be deeper to hold interest. They're novelty at best.
Can't lie that trailer makes this look so dope lol.
Next up LABO: American edition. It's just a 9mm handgun in a LABO box. lol
There is heaps of quality time to be had building this stuff with your kids, regardless of its shelf life. My kids love Labo, and use it whenever they have mates over, they can create music and simple games, and are learning some basic coding with the garage function...the only problem with this new release is finding places to store all the cardboard....apparently we need a hobby room now!
If Nintendo announce a new Star Fox, Labo better be an OPTIONAL control scheme. They have Arwing, Blue Marine and Landmaster controls in one pack.
Not day one but I will buy. I can’t fit that in with Dragon Quest, Spiderman, Tomb Raider. Not enough time for all this fun.
@Trikeboy if Mario Kart 8 has it optional. i can't see why Nintendo would make a Star Fox game used Labo only. i do agree with you though!
You know this makes me think, does this confirm that Nintendo has a Diddy Kong Racing sequel in the works that will be compatible with Nintendo Labo?
@patbacknitro18 No, though more MK8D has been confirmed. Extra cups, battle arenas? We'll just have to wait and see.
@Nico07 I mean Mario Kart was promised to have more updates, no specifically just Labo updates (As the BOTW gear just got added to the game) But with the mechanics of Driving, Flying, and Sailing, I can only hope that its gonna lead to another Diddy Kong game. After all, Nintendo has yet to make a racing game for the Switch (With MK8 being a Deluxe port rather than a brand new game)
Looks like wonderful fun to have with my youngest family members.
I'm so glad Nintendo is making games for young kids. This is a great product!
This looks awesome.
OK this actually looks fun
For the first time I feel in danger of buying myself a Labo kit.
Looks good. Hope it sells well because it seems to deserve it!
@Not_Soos Keep in mind, when Kimishima talked about more software this year, he didn't gaurentee it'd be games for core gamers. When Nintendo makes hints and teases like that, especially post E3, it almost always refers to games that they feel will maximize hardware sales, not just stuff for Nintendo fans.
A lot of this would work well with a new Pilotwings.
In fact you don’t even need Labo for a new Pilotwings.
We just need a new Pilotwings.
This looks better than the first wave of Labo bit also makes me sad that Nintendo won't just make games like this or Pilotwings or Wave Race anymore without the need for gimmicky controls
Also, the game looks like it "might" be open world, though I'm not sure that will matter that much.
The Crew: Nintendo edition
Not for me but looks great for its target audience. Would have loved to have this kind of stuff as a kid. Really hope the software has long term use this time though.
Bring on the Labo toilet roll holder & Nintendo branded TP, also includes toilet training game card
September is Spider-Man month thanks. Not that I would have bought it anyway
hey kid, you wanna play fortnite with all your buddies or meddle around with some cardboard for 3 hours with your step dad Todd?
@SonOfVon thank god you can do both of those on Switch.
My big September game is Valkyria Chronicles 4.
Awesome, exactly what Labo needed to sell better!
This looks a lot more cohesive than the other variety kit.
Give it too me!
Though I hope I can swap out that gross looking Roblox style guy for my Mii or something. Poor Miis, they were so much fun and they've been left behind with Switch.
@Grant007 3DS, Wii U, PC?
@RickD my son got the Robot Kit for his birthday, I REALLY wanted him to get the Variety Kit as I figured he'd get more out of it in the long run but... he had to get the Robot. We had an absolute blast making it, it was a joy, I loved seeing him get so excited as we made progress and it was fantastic when it was completed and he put it on and it worked! The novelty wore off eventually but while it lasted it was pretty magic!
Ahh jeez, this looks kind of awesome. If the games turn out to be good, I just might have to buy it. Then wait like... 5 years until my son is old enough to play with it with me and put it together. By then they'll probably already have released Labo: Toy-Con 53: Direct Brain Implant Game Controller.
Surprised by this. Assumed Labo would be quietly shelved after the performance of the first two, but I guess maybe this was already in the pipeline.
D’oh! I wish I’d waited for this kit instead...
Also the Paladins ad with Alex is creepy... peeking out from behind every article.
I will get it, I will play the **** out of it, then I will convert it for Assetto Corsa and bump into every player with a 600$ Fanatec rig.
wow...i really like it
I ask for some more racing sims and Nintendo gives me a vehicle Labo kit...
Gotta say, Nintendo is really on point with their advertisements these days. Always quite simple and entertaining.
Still not going to buy LABO though
This looks very peripheral-like and less toy-like. By which I mean a steering wheel, pedal, and flight-stick are just games peripherals that have existed for decades.
But the exciting thing is that they still haven't done a kit with some of the toy-cons from the original reveal. I want a camera and a flappy bird
@Grant007 Steam is free. It also provides probably the best service out of every gaming network.
@nessisonett Steam is a online consul provider like I compared?
@Haywired Labo did well for Nintendo, at least the Variety Kit did. Keep in mind, Nintendo wasn't expecting a huge launch, so meeting their expectations with modest sales is considered a success.
I’m definitely interested, but will wait for some reveiws.
Diddy kong are you seeing this 0_0
@TheMisterManGuy Yeah, I don't think he ever even mentioned the Switch or software, specifically. At the time I thought he very well could have been referring to another Classic Edition system or anything. I still wanted to believe there were more exciting Switch games this year from Nintendo, though, but it's doubtful.
@Not_Soos No, he was indeed talking about the Switch, saying that the full Fall lineup hasn't been revealed yet. But that doesn't necessarily mean it's going to be AAA software aimed at core gamers. It's simply going to be games that either round out the rest of the year, or are meant to maximize Switch hardware adoption. Labo Vehicle Kit is an example of this. It's not something aimed at us, but it's something that can potentially give the Switch a nice hardware boost come holiday.
@SonOfVon PCMR on a Nintendo site, nice
I know new stuff is coming eventually, but it's looking doubtful we'll get any new first-party Switch announcements for this year. Obviously Nintendo doesn't owe me anything, but we ARE consumers, after all. I see you like Zelda based on your profile icon, so let me give you an analogy:
Let's say Link stops by Lon Lon Ranch on a monthly basis to buy milk produced by the local cows. Lon Lon Milk is his personal favorite, and he's willing to spend as many Rupees on it as necessary rather than get it from some other, worse, farm. However, Link finds out one day the cows have stopped making milk, and he isn't sure if he will be able to get any from Lon Lon Ranch for another few months. He isn't mad at Talon for not having milk--he knows Talon doesn't "owe [him] anything," but he's still upset at the circumstances because the boy likes his milk!
His only options are to either be thirsty until Lon Lon Ranch gets more milk, or do business elsewhere, as he (the consumer) has rights just as much as Talon (the producer). It's not Talon's fault his cows have gone dry, but as he is dependent on Rupees from Link and other Hylian customers, he shouldn't be surprised if his profits start to decline. No one is being "whiny" here, it's just a simple case of customer needs and wants not being fully met. That doesn't mean I'll ever stop being a dedicated Nintendo fan, but you and I have plenty a right to be upset about things. I'm not particularly upset about the paid online service, but lots of people are; does that make them "whiny" as well because "Nintendo doesn't owe them anything?"
I hope my Zelda analogy illustrates to you that we're all just Nintendo fans at the end of the day, and there's no need for snarky comments toward each other. Not that yours was horrible, but it didn't exactly lift me up this morning.
yes! count me in big N <3
@TheMisterManGuy Ah, okay, thank you.
@HobbitGamer Just realized your Mii is a watering can. Hee-hee.
@MasterJay finally somebody notices lol
This looks like so much fun. I just worry that my hands get really sweaty...
I still think it's strange why this was not shown on E3, it would have reached a lot of people.
Well I will be getting Valkiriya Chronicles 4 in September if I have finished my RPG backlog by then.
Although I am considering Labo as a fun Christmas distraction to build on the day
While I like the look of these and enjoyed building the the first Labo set, my main issue is storing all the cardboard peripherals (Paticularly the bigger ones like the bike and the new ones look all on the bigger side) when they are not in use.
@Spoony_Tech In fairness I think we all new this was going to be a limited gimmick type thing. As parents we buy our kids lots of toys they want, but only a few get played with regularly. Heck I have half a dozen video games I haven't even started yet. Some I know I never will, impulse purchases.
With Labo it was always about some fun creativity. My biggest problem with this new set is how freaking huge that car steering system and sub steering system appear to be. I really don't need those 2 huge things in my house anywhere. The plane stick is fine. We already have the motorcycle for driving, well once they build it. And the graphics remind me of BK: Nuts and Nolts, the sequel nobody wanted. Open world is fine, but empty world is not. And tank controls on the sub, while they make sense from Labo build perspective, are horrible to use.
Maybe we'll pick this up for $30 someplace BF, build it and burn it, maybe while we're watching a couple of Beavis and Butthead episodes. Nintendo should get those 2 as sponsors, I hear a reboot is in the works. 😉
@Savino My kids were excited to build the fishing pole and make their own fish designs. Then after finishing building it the game told them they needed to build the piano first to make their own fish. How the #$/$# does that make any sense at all?!?! The kids build stuff and then they still can't play with it. That was about a month ago, after building the RC car, haven't touched it since. Though in fairness we've been busy and they didn't really want it all that much, just bought it for them to do.
@Knuckles-Fajita yes lets all ignore Torna the Golden Country.
@Spoony_Tech isn't that the case with every toy? Kids has short attention spans but Labo is worth it if you consider this's a toy parents can also use.
@JJ286 I cknsoder DLC to not be a major release no matter how expansive. Its simply more of 2017's games.
@Grant007 Yes, Steam can run on average PCs or on a dedicated gaming machine like the Steam Machines. They run SteamOS and play only games, pretty much the definition of a gaming 'consul' like you said. It's also one of the largest gaming networks in the world and is completely free.
@nessisonett My point is that both Xbox and PS charge for network services. Want to play for free, buy a PC (it even rhymes)!
@patbacknitro18 That would be great as Nintendo has rights to the characters though it was a Rare produced game. I would say it's just as or maybe more likely that Star Fox Zero could return on Switch with new Labo controls. Or it could be a stand alone like the Robot Labo, but simply offer tie ins to MK8D. I'm with you though in wanting to see DKR return at some point sooner than later. Other possibilities could be F-Zero and Pilotwings.
@Grant007 I just don't see why you suddenly have to pay for Switch online when 3DS and Wii U were free. The free retro games each month are worth about 2 pence and there's not even a Virtual Console so we're stuck with Nintendo's choices on that front. Knowing them, we'll get Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde or some other god-forsaken relic that shouldn't have made it out the 80s.
@N00BiSH If it is, this might be the reason for me to finally double dip and get MK8 on Switch, cause I'm definitely getting this new Labo kit.
@SonOfVon It takes one to know one 😉
This looks like the best one IMO; but I'm still doubtful we'll buy this.
I hope the software is more interesting this time...
Haven't even finished building the assorted kit with my stepdaughter, but we have a lot a fun assembling the kit... the problem is, once finished, the software is kind of boring
I have both previous sets. I haven't even opened the robot kit yet, and only built the piano, rc car, and handlebars.
However, I love the idea and concept of Labo and will preorde this new kit for sure. I think it is great for kids and those who love creativity. Yes, it is expensive, but it is a want and not a need. Buy it if you can/want to and don't buy it if you can't/don't want to.
Who needs analog triggers when you have a full on cardboard car.
Now all we need is analogue triggers to make the driving experience on switch complete.
Nintendo making gamers cry again. Good work.
it's Nintendo. don't expect anything for gamers. they just don't care anymore. PC is really where it's at imo. the console twins are fine and Sony has some good exclusives but far and away PC gaming is pretty much tops.... well except for the graphics card situation... barf on that.
@Not_Soos there are more announcements than just one.
@sword_9mm (cough)bs(cough) there plenty of games for switch for the remainder of the year so dont start pulling non bs out of thin air dood.
yep. enough for me. but don't expect indies and N to fill the whole slate.
the switch is what it is. an N console that does N things and a few others. still need to have another console/pc.
I just want the cart sold cheap without the cardboard for the editing program. :/
@sword_9mm "it's Nintendo. don't expect anything for gamers. they just don't care anymore."
This is blatantly false.
prove me wrong.
@sword_9mm Metroid Prime 4. Smash Bros. Ultimate. Fire Emblem: Three Houses, among others. Just because they're making games for casuals, doesn't mean that fans aren't getting games either.
I really like the idea of labo and my youngest keeps asking for it, but at the moment the software element seems underwhelming. Added to the fact that I live in central London and space is always at a premium so what do I do with all the big cardboard creations. With Japaneses homes tiny even by London standards I can't see this being a hit in the home market. If the software ever looks to reach even AA standard I would bite at least once.
Sonic racers Wii u meets Excitebots?
