One including the Elephant and Camera, and the other including the Wind Pedal and Bird.

A Nintendo Labo: VR Kit contains cardboard pieces and software to build six Toy-Con projects: Toy-Con VR Goggles, a Toy-Con Blaster, Toy-Con Camera, Toy-Con Bird, Toy-Con Wind-Pedal (?) and a Toy-Con Elephant.

The Nintendo Labo VR Kit is releasing on April 12th and it will be available in two different configurations. This is indeed happening in an unexpected way next month with the Nintendo Labo VR Kit. "We wanted to design an experience that encourages both virtual and real-world interactions among players through passing around Toy-Con creations". Unlike other VR devices, it doesn't require a headset.

Nintendo's two Labo VR sets will be available in the United States from April 12, 2019, with releases in the UK and Australia expected to arrive around the same time.

Hours later, Caracas said it had closed much of the Colombian border, citing threats to Venezuela's security. But the United States announced on Friday preparations to bring aid in through another route.

If you're looking to get in on the ground floor of Nintendo's VR action, there's also a $39.99 starter kit that comes with just the goggles and blaster - but, crucially, no elephant. Along with that, users can turn off the VR functionality and use the screen holder and cap in 2D mode. If, once you've spent some time those creations, you decide you want more, Nintendo will offer two expansion sets for $19.99 each.

The Toy-Con Garage feature will be making a return in the VR kit, which could lead to some seriously awesome creations. 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. The Starter Set is a great entry point into the world of Nintendo Labo VR.

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

Those who purchase the Starter Set can expand the experience with two additional options.
