Pre-order the Nintendo Labo Vehicle Kit

A few months ago, I wrote about the then-upcoming release of the “Variety” and “Robot” Nintendo Labo kits, which let Nintendo Switch owners build their own “Toy-Con” cardboard peripherals. Those kits have since gone on to receive glowing reviews, mainly for being such an inventive and unconventional approach to gaming.

Now, Nintendo are set to release a third entry in the Labo lineup: the Vehicle Kit. This time around, you’ll be able to create one of three steering rigs: one for a car, one for a plane, and one for a submarine. Each one can be used with an acceleration pedal, and you can switch between the different rigs on the fly by moving a Toy-Con “key” between them. A second “key” allows a friend to join you for co-op play.

Watch the first-look video:

Man, that looks fun. The kit will come with everything you see here:


  • 25 cardboard sheets (plus an extra sheet for customization)
  • Reflective sticker sheet
  • Sponge sticker sheet
  • String
  • 2 gray grommet sets
  • 2 red grommet sets
  • 3 large rubber bands + spares
  • 12 small rubber bands + spares

The Vehicle Kit releases September 14th, 2018 and can be pre-ordered for $70.
