It looks like Switch owners will get their first taste of virtual reality later this Spring when Nintendo launches the Nintendo Labo: VR Kit. All three of these kits contain the Nintendo Labo Toy-Con Garage software, which is necessary for all Labo play on the Switch, plus the cardboard projects themselves. One comes with a Camera and an Elephant, while the other includes a Bird and a Wind Pedal.
Incoming Nintendo of America president Doug Bowser said, "We wanted to design an experience that encourages both virtual and real-world interactions among players through passing around Toy-Con creations".
The new Toy-Con is available in two configurations: the complete VR Kit set includes the Switch software and materials to build all six Labo VR projects-VR Goggles, Blaster, Camera, Bird, Wind Pedal, and Elephant. With the VR kit costing $80 - Sony's PlayStation VR headset has a heftier $300 price tag - the device aligns with Google Cardboard's aim of making the technology more accessible. This is not something to compare with the standard VR Headset and Kits which are available for PC systems and other gaming consoles.
Toycon #4 VR Kit is releasing on April 12 and features a set of held goggles where you need to put your Nintendo Switch console. GH, for example, is known for Nintendo accessories and can make a solid third-party product. Those who want to test the Labo VR kit without spending that much money also have the option to purchase a basic starter kit at $39.99.

KitGuru Says: The Switch is fairly limited in handheld mode, so I doubt we'll see Nintendo do anything else with VR beyond Labo mini games.
When you can actually find them, third-party Nintendo Labo Kits may be extremely tempting due to how cheap they are. Nintendo promotes this kit as offering "the full experience".
