Nintendo Switch games: NEW Pokemon game to be released THIS YEAR?

Nintendo teased us all about an upcoming interactive experience announced today: the Nintendo Labo.

While the Labo kits are definitely geared towards younger players, it's no stretch to imagine older Switch owners donning the cardboard Toy-Cons once the kids are in bed. One being the Labo Variety Kit, which contains the majority of the cardboard kits (a house, RC vehicle, fishing rod, motorbike, and piano). Each creation is then fully compatible with the Switch and Joy-Con pads in different ways, and plays into Ninty's philosophy of "putting smiles on people's face" by inspiring 'creative minds and playful hearts alike'.

At a glance, Nintendo Labo is a pair of Switch games, each with its own DIY cardboard construction kit - separated into a $70 "variety kit" and an $80 "Robot Kit". Insert the Left and Right Joy-Con into the designated slots on the backpack and visor to assume control of the robot, which appears on the TV when the Nintendo Switch console is docked.

Why Bitcoin, Ethereum, Ripple Are Plunging Today
After banning cryptocurrency exchanges in 2017, China is cracking down on other venues for trading of digital currencies. Neighboring cryptocurrencies were also down today as pouring negative news about the market erupts.

The Nintendo Labo has a released date of April 2018, with the first kits priced at around $69.99. The Labo kits include all the cardboard pieces you need to build the projects they contain, as well as the Switch software necessary to run the interactive digital elements. These Nintendo Labo accessories are made out of cardboard and can be used to create various other working objects with the Nintendo Switch.

The company will also be selling a Customization Set for $10, which would include stickers, stencils, and colored tape to fix the cardboard you might break. Instead, Nintendo rolled out a product that's ridiculously, delightfully analog-and kind of genius, if you look at it from a kid's perspective. There is also a robot kit ($79.99) that looks it offers a low-budget version of virtual reality gaming. As you build, you will have fun discovering how the technology works, and might even invent new ways to play with each Toy-Con.

Nintendo Labo was revealed in the trailer you see posted below.
