So from completely out of left field, Nintendo unveils this: Cardboard toys mainly targeted towards kids. What you do is build these cardboard sets like a piano or fishing rod and then place your Nintendo Switch console into it and then it acts just like what the cardboard represents. Check out the reveal video above to see what im talking about.
They will be released in April and come in two sets. A variety pack priced at (in the us) $69.99 and a robot set priced at $79.99.
Soooo will you get it? either for you or perhaps as a gift? :P
Will you buy Nintendo Labo?

Lmfao i don’t think so. I would play with it if one of my mates bought it, but i personally wouldn’t go to the shop and buy one for myself2
Interesting idea but I don't know who the fuck wants an $70 cardboard 10 key piano?2
I doubt it. I may get a Switch, though. I hear the Zelda game on it is fantastic. Otherwise, I’ll stick to my NES and N64 for my Nintendo fix. I’m more of a PlayStation girl anyway.2
Maybe after I buy a switch :P1
I have the Switch already and umm Labo seems fun but I don't know yet...4
For a child, yes, I think it would be a really interesting gift.1
Lol no. 70 € for cardboards? You gotta be kidding me.2
What on earth is that.1
Nah, doesn't look like it's really aimed at me, nor is it my thing in general :P0
Hell yes I loved Nintendo1
I don't think I ever will.0

It looks neat, but is clearly just a gimmick with no real substance behind it. The fact they are using cardboard pretty much proves that they don't expect this stuff to see much use, which is why they don't need a higher quality product.1
It's an awesome concept. As things stand I don't possess a Switch, nor do I have the money to make that purchase with or without LABO so It's very doubtful that I'd be getting it. Then again... the robot set looks absolutely sick xD1
I think it'll be like playing wii tennis. Fun the first few times but nothing you would spend a lot of time on. I also don't get how it works. I'm just thinking about how insane the delay must be when using something like the piano. Think about playing a game where you have to hit notes on time and it isn't responsive and has a slight delay.
Would like to try it though. Maybe spend $10 on it just to try it.
I'm wondering what the most fun game will be on it. It's all just minigames though so.1
No, but I read an article by some geek at WIRED gushing about the whole thing. I guess if you are a bored silicon valley tech bro with money to burn and the cultural sofistication of a 12-year-old, it holds great appeal. Maybe that was unfair to 12-year-olds?1
Nope, I want to lounge while playing games, not this crap excercise in disguise.
But I'm gonna get some Switch + BOtW action when I have money to buy one.1
I have Playstation1
Probably not.. Although my cat would love all that cardboard.1
Can't say that I will.1
No, that looks like an immense waste of money.1
It's a fancy cardboard box.
So yes, for some reason.1
Seems cool but for £60 for 10 minigames and origami? I'd rather many other games for that price other than this. Looks like a great idea tho ideal for younger people1
Made of cardboard and costs 70 quid? Someone's taking the piss...1
No thank you. Peace.1
If only I had the room to store it in my house :/1
I got no use for nintendo or any of their products. Yes I am a gamer.1
