Nintendo brings virtual reality to Switch with the new 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.

Nintendo had previously decided that high-end VR devices would not be popular among families and children. The kits will support the Switch being used for the screens, and the Joy-Con will be used for tracking. The VR Kit will retail for $79.99. "We wanted to design an experience that encourages both virtual and real-world interactions among players through passing around Toy-Con creations".

Six new Toy-Con kits are being introduced: VR Goggles, Blaster, Camera, Elephant, Bird, and Wind Pedal.

To start, Switch owners can get a complete set that includes the relevant Labo Switch software and six Toy-Con projects - the Toy-Con VR Goggles, Toy-Con Blaster, Toy-Con Camera, Toy-Con Bird, Toy-Con Wind Pedal and Toy-Con Elephant.

The Labo range launched in April 2018 through a Variety Kit and Robot Kit, with a Vehicle Kit following in September.

Nintendo has officially unveiled its fourth Labo Toy-Con kit for the Switch console, and in doing so has finally confirmed the long-standing rumour that the console would receive a virtual reality (VR) add-on. This "Starter Set + Blaster" bundle will be priced at $39.99, and it'll include the Screen Holder and Safety Cap, as well as building materials for the Toy-Con VR Goggles and the Toy-Con Blaster.

The VR kit isn't a traditional virtual reality headset, but aesthetically in line with Google Cardboard as the rumors stated. That means it's actually a whopping two cents cheaper to buy them all separately, though the expansion sets will only be available on Nintendo's official online store and you'll probably have to pay for shipping.
