Nintendo gaming fans will have to wait until 12 April for these VR kits to make it to retail (US date and prices provided).

Described as a "unique first VR experience", the Nintendo Labo: VR Kit is the fourth set in the company's Labo lineup of educational constructional toys that are compatible with the Switch. There will also be a $39.99 Starter Set pack that includes only the Toy-Con VR Googles and Toy-Con Blaster. While we're waiting to find out exactly how quickly our arms get exhausted, another fascinating question will be how engrossing an experience be with the Toy-Con VR goggles pressed up against the Switch's 720p, 60 fps display.

Nintendo Labo: VR Kit offers six new Toy-Con creations to build, including the Toy-Con VR Goggles, which combine with the other creations to allow players to interact with the virtual world through imaginative real-world actions.

Shortly after introducing Labo to the world in April a year ago, Nintendo started introducing Labo to schools in an attempt to reach more people. This is indeed happening in an unexpected way next month with the Nintendo Labo VR Kit. Expansion Set 1 includes the elephant mask and camera, while Expansion Set 2 includes the bird mask and the wind pedal.

The Labo Kit comprises of a number of toy-con projects including one that turns the headset into an elephant mask.

The line of cardboard DIY kits Nintendo offers for its Switch console keep expanding, and the latest one is Labo VR.
