Nintendo Labo

Nintendo revealed what’s next for Nintendo Labo a couple of days ago. On September 14, Switch owners can get their hands on the new Vehicle Kit.

We have several images showing off the Vehicle Kit below. Hit up the gallery for a few screenshots and a variety of promotional images.

Amazon has opened up pre-orders for the new Nintendo Labo: Vehicle Kit. You can reserve it here.

We should also mention that Best Buy has corrected its listing from last night. The Vehicle Kit can be pre-ordered at the retailer here for $69.99, rather than the incorrect $79.99 price point from yesterday.

Announced earlier tonight, the next Nintendo Labo product is the Vehicle Kit. Best Buy taking pre-orders here.

While you can pre-order, keep in mind that Best Buy is listing the package for $79.99. We heard from Nintendo that it will actually be $69.99. If you lock that pre-order in, you may need to ask Best Buy to reduce the price, or wait until it’s done automatically.

Thanks to polan18 for the tip.

Pricing for the Nintendo Labo: Vehicle Kit is set at $69.99. We have more information with the full announcement and a trailer below.

Nintendo shared a video a few days ago in which Shigeru Miyamoto and Shinya Takahashi faced off in a Nintendo Labo game. A second clip has come in with the two once again. We have the latest video below.

Mario Kart 8 Deluxe was updated tonight to support Nintendo Labo. That won’t be the only game to be given such treatment.

In an announcement covering today’s patch and new contest, Nintendo states: “Mario Kart 8 Deluxe is the first game outside of Nintendo Labo software to receive Toy-Con support, and more titles will be compatible with Nintendo Labo in the future.” The company did not elaborate beyond this.

Nintendo has announced the categories for the second Nintendo Labo Creators Contest. These are “Best Gaming Experience using Toy-Con Garage” and “Best Toy-Con Musical Instrument.”

Different prizes are up for grabs, including a specially designed, collectible cardboard-inspired Switch system. Fans in the U.S. or Canada (excluding Quebec) who are 13 years old or older can enter here.

Labo hasn’t been lighting up the sales charts like some of Nintendo’s other Switch releases. Having said that, the company believes it still has potential.

Speaking with The Verge, Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime said that Labo is the type of game “that’s going to sell for a very long time at a very steady pace.” It will also continue to receive support going forward.

Last month, Ariana Grande stopped by The Tonight Show and performed a song with Jimmy Fallon using Nintendo Labo. A new video posted today, shown below, takes fans behind the scenes of how it all came together.
