Nintendo Switch was arguably the hottest release of 2017, with gamers new and old flocking to the beloved manufacturer’s latest console. Fast forward to today, and Nintendo is tapping into a whole new way of enjoying its handheld system.
Today’s fresh approach is called Nintendo Labo, and it features a DIY system of cardboard accessories that can transform Switch into a wide range of neat projects. That includes everything from a robot suit, to piano, fishing rod and more. Combining Switch’s Joy-Con controllers with these cardboard builds opens up a whole new range of mini-games. Nintendo is hoping to tap into the ever-expanding ‘maker’ culture while also bringing a tactile, real-life experience to kids.
