"Stop an alien invasion, paint like an elephant, create your own VR games, and more!"

We've already told you that Nintendo has presented Virtual Reality glasses in the Nintendo Labo kit that can be used with the Switch console.

The product will be available as a bundle titled Nintendo Labo Toy-Con 04: VR Kit, or with a starter set with Toy-Con VR Googles and a Toy Con Blaster, which can be expanded with two expansions.

Use the Toy-Con Bird and Toy-Con Wind Pedal to compete in timed challenges all across the sky as you boost your way through the clouds.

All the games and experiences in Nintendo Labo: VR Kit are created to be shareable, fun and social. An additional multiplayer game lets you take turns drawing and guessing each other's drawings.

Nintendo Labo: VR Kit: Available at a suggested retail price of $79.99, the complete Nintendo Labo: VR Kit includes the Nintendo Switch software and materials to build all 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 - as well as a Screen Holder and Safety Cap. There is even a "Toy-Con Garage VR" that will let you create your own small VR games.

The second Toy-Con the video previews is the Wind Pedal, which doesn't actually attach to the headset at all. Get a sneak peek at what's included by checking out the new Nintendo Labo: VR Kit - Launch trailer on the official Nintendo YouTube channel. Definitely one of the more unique Toy-Cons we've seen, the Bird comes with cardboard wings that players can flap to explore an in-game world, and it can also be used in tandem with the Wind Pedal for an extra burst of speed.

The Toy-Con Elephant, on the other hand, uses the elephant's trunk to move a 3D brush, ideal for stimulating players' creativity.

That's not all Nintendo has in store, there's also the VR Plaza filled with 64 bite-sized videogames and experiences, a lot of which only use the VR Goggles part of the system. Each of those games was made in Toy-Con Garage, and you can open them up yourself to see how they work.

Instead of simply making the touch screen and Joy-Cons fly up and vibrate, you can now place objects in 3D space inside the software, and program how they behave. He said that the new VR kit goes a step further to make the Toy-Con creations real and encourage family-friendly, pass-and-play gaming experiences.

Nintendo Labo: VR Kit - Expansion Set 1***:Expansion Set 1 includes the components needed to build the Toy-Con Elephant and Toy-Con Camera. Each accessory is different with where the Joy-Cons go and how they work, so you'll want to make sure to take a look at the manual and instructions of your kit to ensure that everything's ready-to-go once they're put together.
