This week Nintendo announced a new product called Labo. Labo is an interactive cardboard kit for the Nintendo Switch. There are two kits that will be coming out on April 20th. Toy-Con 1 retails for $69.99 and Toy-Con 2 retails for $79.99. Kit 1 comes with a house, 2 RC cars, a fishing rod, a motorbike and a piano. Everything is controlled with the two Joy-Cons. Kit 2 comes with a robot suit. Each kit comes with software as well.
I think this is a very unique idea, and it will be great for younger kids. I like how interactive it is. I think that the piano, the RC cars, and the robot suit look the most interesting. What do you think about Labo?
Nintendo had a surprise direct for us today. They revealed several games release dates and they also announced several new titles in the works. Mario Tennis Ace was announced in todays direct.

Nintendo really out did themselves with this mini direct. They also revealed DLC for several games. This includes Super Mario Odyssey, Mario+Rabbids Kingdom Battle and Pokken Tournament DX. In Super Mario Odyssey they have a new mode that allows players to hide balloons for other players to find. Nintendo Revealed two new Pokemon for Pokken Tournament; the two new Pokemon are Blastoise and Aegislash. The DLC for Mario + Rabbids is a new story mode that includes Donkey Kong.
I am really looking forward to Mario Tennis Ace and Kirby Star Allies. It will be great to take these full fledged console games on the go! It is interesting to see the story mode return to Mario Tennis. What games are you looking forward to playing on the Nintendo Switch?
