Get ready to Make, Play and Discover with Nintendo Labo! Nintendo Labo is a new line of interactive build-and-play experiences that combine DIY creations with the magic of Nintendo Switch. Available on April 20, 2018.
Urm...okay It's for kids I guess but they are kind of cheap looking. I can't really imagine them working as well as they do in the video...it's like when you saw Mouse Trap being played out as a kid on TV, then when you actually did you failed spectacularly I would have just made a partnership with LEGO to be honest, imagine little Lego Mario or Zelda toys....hell imagine LEGO Pokemon.
It's $80 for a piece of cardboard. lol
$69.99 for one $79.99 for the other If I had kids I would rather buy them Mario Kart, Super Mario Odyssey or Arms
It comes with software too. I can see this doing well with the casuals.
Flop and not revolutionary. The Dreamcast had a bevy of accessories and more sturdy. Nintendo you are ovrrrated and not innovative.
Several years ago there was a product on the market where you could build a robot and use a soda can and that was kind of gimmicky but it was cool when my kids built them. This is using cardboard but I like to believe it wont take long for there to be 3rd party patterns and creations that go beyond what nintendo has laid out. Kids have pretty good imagination and even i remember building things with erector sets and capsella kits. This looks cool and make me think back to that simpler times as a kid. today's kids are all about technology so why not bridge technology (switch) with creativity and construction (cardboard).
No, it definitely comes with the software.
You've Done you're research I see, so $80 just for the cardboard ?
NOP, they said that you could print your own, so they are selling you "games" (Experimental software)
Heh! that partnership with LEGO sounds like it would actually had been a good idea. Now go play with your cardboard Stimpy !!!
Least with the Lego partnership they could have lead up to a LEGO Nintendo game and then used all the Amiibos to their full advantage with the game. Seems like they go together hand in hand.
With Amiibo already as “expensive” as it is (at least based on you N4G people), you gonna want Nintendo to partner up with Lego and potentially increase the price even much higher? Amiibo is already good enough as it is.
Remarkably creative and i applaud Nintendo attempting something new but this is cardboard we are talking about, i mean how durable will it be and how well will it work? This is very casual, if u want a racing experience with a peripheral i wouldn't expect a cardboard wheel to be the best. Also, the tailor-made games don't look very good. It's a cute idea but many of the makeshift peripherals have been done better in the past. Rockband, proper racing wheels, motion based gaming with VR. This sort of goes into Wii territory imo.
This has all the ingredients of Nintendo's take on Google Cardboard and charging more than they ought to.
So a rock band set for a six year old ?
^ Remember Wii Music?
I was expecting a massive World of Nintendo game that brought toys to life. With all the Amiibo's. This cardboard cutout stuff is meant to be expensive and I can't see each device lasting long enough with them being thrown about.
it is the worst thing that i think Nintendo has come up with since, it's the worst. here is my thoughts on trying to sell cardboard. https://www.youtube.com/wat...
Before I had Kids, I wouldn't have seen the value either. Now, I appreciate what Nintendo is doing.
Lol at the Mouse Trap analogy. Even so, I do actually give them credit for trying with this, even though I feel they got the idea from Tearaway. At least cardboard is more environmentally friendly than plastic (Amiibo)
Speaking as a partial nintendo fan I see this as a massive misstep. Hopefully this and the shovelware it was designed for doesn't distract them from making actual games.
Soon millions of Amazon cardboard boxes will be listed on ebay with "compatible with Nintendo Switch" in the title. I have 2 large Amazon boxes and 3 small ones. Will sell them as a bundle for £30 (cheaper than Nintendo).
Kind of neat.
I agree it is cool but I see this selling as well as Sonys wonder book esp if the price for the bits are £40 or more. Good to see Nintendo doing something different though.
$80 neat? LOL
Look at what you get to do with it.
Not a thing I'm interested in, I actually cringed a little when I found out this was the rumored big deal about changing the way people play games. But eh, maybe younger fans will be into it.
That is who it is aimed at.
Let me help your fanboy eyes out... imagine if this was Microsoft.
Um ok? available on 4/20, that'll give you some creative ideas
That was my first reaction as well XD
As in, you must be high to spend $150 in cardboard boxes
Couldn't think of a better time to announce this either... Switch emulator??? Nintendo's like Lol try and emulate THIS!!!!
Well, Nintendo can emulate my money, because they're not getting a cent of it in reality.
It should have been released on the 1st of April as it's a f**king joke.
It’s also aimed at 4-8 year olds mind you. This is a toy. Not aimed for you. Look like a fantastic father and son activity if you ask me
I can the potential in having add ons to the Switch but this for me personally is very "meh". Maybe they could have a VR cardboard for the Switch? And what was up with the robot cardboard? Does it actually move....??
Yes it moves
Saw the whole video...how? What is this sorcery that Nintendo has unleashed upon the world!? Okay...at 1:37...they actually have a VR type makeshift cardboard...Lmao... The stick guy falling flat has me sold. Viva La Labo and Viva La Nintendo!
the cardboard moves because the joycons are vibrating, similar to this one: https://www.youtube.com/wat... I guess you can control the direction by adjusting the rumble on either side. Looks fun if you ask me.
Not sure what to do with this information.
Laugh at it? That's what I did.
It’s aimed at kids? Do you laugh at LEGO that costs 200$? Or warhammer that costs 100$ for the smallest amount of plastic
It’s going to outsell psvr easily.
Nintendo Labo will be VR for Nintendo's Fan? Wow
It an AR Toy add on that teaches kids coding and engineering. It has nothing to do with VR.
I mean, you're not wrong. It took PSVR a year to hit 1 million and this will likely have no problem hitting 1 million within the year. Nintendo party games typically sell well. Even Kinect blows PSVR sales out of the water. It doesn't really men much though, as it's obviously much harder to sell a $300 product than it is to sell something that's $150 (or $70 in Labo's case).
Not for me
Results will vary.
The Robot part looked neat. I guess this is Nintendo's version of a Project dreams like game?
Project Giant Robot lives on!O_O
this is dumb
Why is it dumb? Just because you don't like it dose not mean other people won't plus it's for kids and it's designed for kids to do something different with a came console. It's not for you but to say it's dumb is just stupid
For kids eh? I just showed it to my 7 year old son. Know what he said? That looks stupid.
I think its pretty cool I can see adults LABOing I'd try it. :)
@WickedLester - sadly the kids of today look at having to use their hands and imagination as a chore instead of a challenge.
Wickedlester that's just one child and not everyone is the same. For example my best mates little ones who are 5 and 6 said it looked cool but they love to make things. It is each to there own but the comment above I commented on was not valid. I dont like Minecraft or cod but millions do its about choice and some kids will love it others won't.
@wickedlester that must mean every kid thinks so!!! Just because your kid thought so. Maybe it’s the negative attitude you take that’s shifts your son.
BUT who was stupid enough to watch the video??? YOU
Yeah, engaging young kids to be creative and build stuff with their own hands...so stupid. /s
I'd say it's a dumb kiddie thing and won't sell, but then I think Pokemon are a f**king dumb kiddie thing and somehow they sell... so what do I know.
Things can be for kids and not dumb. And Pokémon is a game very well designed. It’s at least better then the yearly releases most kids play
This isn’t for me at all BUT, I can guarantee you that shortly after this is released, you’re gonna see some crazy cool shit coming from Japan with this thing. Watch.
Yeah im with you on that
I know they specifically said this was for kids, but some of these look pretty neat and I might have to get them and try it out.
That's what I love about Nintendo. That they take risks and try new things. In my view they are good at thinking outside the box and adding new wrinkles to their products. I hope it is successful for them.
Haha, thinking outside the box. Naysayers don't have to be impressed by cardboard, the technology behind making this work is impressive.
