Guess MatPat was right. Nintendo is heading into the VR world with their own VR headset made from cardboard, specifically Nintendo Labo cardboard.

The headset is will kit will come in either Labo VR Kit or the Starter Set + Blaster. These cost $79.99 and $39.99. If you purchase the cheaper starter kit, you can buy the other VR Toy-Con via expansions. Expansion Set 1 includes the elephant mask and camera, while Expansion Set 2 includes the bird mask and the wind pedal. Each expansion costs $19.99 and will only be sold on Nintendo’s online store.

With the new Nintendo Labo VR Kit, there’s more to Make, Play, and Discover together than ever before. Nintendo Labo Toy-Con 04: VR Kit is a unique first VR experience kids and families can build themselves!

The Starter Set + Blaster kit provides an action-packed introduction to the experience. You can then add to the fun with the Expansion Sets. Or, if you want an even broader experience right away, you can purchase the full Nintendo Labo VR Kit, which features six VR Toy-Con projects in one package.

Gameplay has not been shown as of yet but this cardboard and cheaper model is a step above any other option, including Sony’s PSVR. Which is currently the most affordable premium VR headset available.
