To help encourage this social gameplay, players simply slip the Nintendo Switch console into the Toy-Con VR Goggles and hold it up to their eyes to explore numerous games and experiences - no head-strap needed.

What do you make of the Switch's first foray into the world of VR?

A brand-new Nintendo Labo kit has been announced by Nintendo, bringing VR experiences to the Nintendo Switch; say "hello" to Nintendo Labo Toy-Con 04: VR Kit!

Expansion Set 1 supplies the pre-cut material required for a camera and an elephant design, while Expansion Set 2 allows for a bird and what Nintendo is calling a wind pedal. You don't have to use the Switch in VR mode to play with the Labo VR projects though, Nintendo says you can also play without mounting your Switch to your face. There are a pair of expansion sets priced at $20 each for those who want to upgrade from the starter pack.

Upon completing the virtual reality set, users can insert their Nintendo Switch and become immersed in the game's world. So far the Labo toys have been a rewarding - if time consuming - investment, and it will be interesting to see if the trend continues next month.

Not wishing to make people double dip, owners of the starter kit can pick up two expansion sets for $19.99 each.

Let me pre-burst any bubbles and clarify that these kits are not meant to convert Switch into a fully featured VR system.

The main Labo VR Kit includes six different VR Toy-Con projects to build, including the Toy-Con VR Goggles, which are required to use all the other creations. After buying that starter set, gamers can add a couple of expansion sets. Read on for more details. The first includes a toy-con elephant and a camera, and the second includes a toy-con bird and wind petal.

The main VR kit is priced at Dollars 79.99 and contains all six of the projects, including the elephant, VR goggles, a blaster, camera, bird and a wind pedal.
