Something for the ‘kids and kids at heart’

Nintendo revealed Nintendo Labo, a “new interactive experience” for Switch today. Labo, cardboard sets that interact with the Nintendo Switch console, let players build accessories for their console that are interactive.

During the two-and-a-half-minute reveal above, Nintendo showed a playable cardboard piano cradling a Switch. There was also an R/C car powered by Joy-Cons, and an entire cardboard backpack that seems to connect to punching robot game.

Watch the full reveal above. Nintendo originally teased the experience as something designed for all of those “kids and those who are kids at heart.”

The Switch has been wildly successful for Nintendo after just 10 months on the market. The console will celebrate its first anniversary in March, and Nintendo is already amping up to make the Switch’s second year even bigger than its first. One major tease: President Tatsumi Kimishima said that the company is looking to broaden the Switch’s mainstream appeal in 2018 in an interview with Mainichi, a major Japanese newspaper.
