Nintendo Labo launched back in April, and we immediately fell in love with its simple but ingenious mix of tools for creation and real fun, buildable gadgets, but the company does not stop with Variety Kit and Robot Kit. The new Nintendo Labo Vehicle Kit starts in September, bringing you to land, air and sea.
Released September 14th to $ 70, the Nintendo Labo Vehicle Kit contains the software and carton pieces you need to control a Toy-Con car, airplane and submarine. In the trailer we see a young player who puts together a steering wheel, a pedal and a carton, which then activates an in-game buggy that can be driven around an open field. By pulling a wire next to the steering wheel, the buggy afterburner is activated and it is pushed over a jump.
With the wagon in midway, the player draws the key and tracks into a grand piano that causes the vehicle to morph into an airplane. After diving into the water, the key is removed from the flyspace and inserted into the control column and the plane morphs into a submarine. By using two wheels on each side of the column, the player can even control the engines and navigate in stone underwater.
The vehicle set seems to be the perfect companion to Mario Kart 8 Deluxe which was recently given support for the motorcycle. Using the boards, players can run around the track, just like platers using traditional controls ̵
Like the range and the robot, the vehicle's software is installed using the Toy-Con Garage utility. The tool allows players to create brand new gadgets using Switch and some cardboard, and some of those we've seen so far have been amazing. They featured a functioning analog alarm clock and a "solar powered" cardboard characteristic that relies on the Joy-Cons camera to determine which notes to play. With even more time to experiment, we are sure that even more amazing things come from Labo.
