Nintendo Labo Toys Wed Like to Build

first_img ‘Super Smash Bros. Ultimate’ Was Final Mission From Late Nintendo President‘Ring Fit Adventure’ Is a Nintendo Switch Exercise RPG With Labo, Nintendo made us all jealous of today’s kids. The Nintendo Switch was already nifty enough with its ability to swap between console and handheld play. But the recently revealed Labo line of accessories and games allows the tablet and detachable controllers to become a whole range of smart cardboard toys and robots. In case you missed it, here’s what all the nerdy DIY maker STEM children will be getting their hands on this 4/20 starting at $69.The initial Labo sets include “Toy-Con” pianos, RC cars, fishing rods, houses, motorcycle handles, and an entire mech suit cobbled together from failed Wii U demo “Project Giant Robot.” But beyond these confirmed kits the trailer shows off potential Labo birds, driving pedals, arcade joysticks, and little men who collapse when they vibrate too hard. Very relatable.Since it’s literally cardboard, Nintendo could let kids make whatever they want with Labo. And the toys seem so appealing that we suspect Labo will be a big hit that continues past these first two sets. That sparked our own crazy imaginations as to what other Labo toys may be on the horizon. So these are our humble suggestions for Nintendo Labo toys we personally would like to build.A Creepy Puppet and/or Real BoySome kids play with toys with their friends. Others use toys to make up for their lack of friends. A creepy Nintendo Labo puppet could fill both needs. Put the Switch screen in its chest like a Teletubby. Maybe it uses the IR camera to scan a rough approximation of your emotions and react accordingly. And if you wish hard enough, that cardboard smart dummy might just become a real boy.WarioWare GamesThe WarioWare series is a brilliant deconstruction of minigame collections and game design itself. It’s long past time for Nintendo to bring it back and Labo might just be the perfect avenue. The overarching WarioWare plot has that greedy greasy jerk demanding players make their own games for Wario to profit off of. But with Labo, Wario can now force you to build entire new physical video game accessories and systems, all in fifteen seconds of course.Steel Battalion MechThe Steel Battalion series is infamous for its absurd control schemes. The first two games forced players to control mechs using gargantuan controllers with no less than 40 buttons and sticks. There was a windshield wiper button! Steel Battalion on Kinect went in the opposite direction and ditched the controller for a full-body motion control giant robot experience. Nintendo Labo could bridge the two, allowing you to build your own dumb complicated mech you then get to become.A Weapon to Surpass Metal GearThere are a lot of iconic elements in the Metal Gear Solid series. Solid Snake. The twist in part two. The delivery of the phrase “Metal Gear?!?” But when thinking of this classic stealth series, who doesn’t remember hiding inside a plain old cardboard box to evade foes? Metal Gear was combining cardboard and gaming long before Labo, but Labo might be the cardboard video game to finally surpass Metal Gear.Fallout TechThe post-apocalyptic world of Bethesda’s Fallout series is littered with bootleg scrap technology plucked out of the future of the 1950s. And sometimes that tech falls into the real-world like the collector’s edition wrist-mounted Pip-Boy. Paying in bottle caps and playing with cardboard are already a perfect match. Plus, Bethesda is already all in on Switch with Skyrim, Doom, and Wolfenstein ports. Complete the set with Fallout Labo.Failed Nintendo AccessoriesJust as the Nintendo Switch draws inspiration from past Nintendo systems, Nintendo Labo draws inspiration from past Nintendo accessories. Why make specific plastic guns and steering wheels and tennis rackets for Switch, like the Wii, when they could just be cardboard? In that spirit, we’d like to see past failed weird Nintendo accessories get a cardboard resurrection with Labo. Cardboard Power Glove, cardboard Virtual Boy, cardboard R.O.B., cardboard Wii U.Bitcoin MinerBitcoin! Everyone is getting in on this hot new cryptocurrency trend before it ruins all of our marriages and global economies. And it’s already affecting video games. PC enthusiasts are finding it tough to buy high-end graphics cards because Bitcoin miners keep scooping them up. So Nintendo Labo should just lean into this. Let kids build their own cardboard Bitcoin mining machine and take home (a portion of) the profits. Nothing sketchy about that.Buy it now!Super Mario OdysseyThe Legend of Zelda: Breath of the WildNintendo SwitchProtect Your Nintendo Switch With These Awesome CasesLet us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey.
