We’ve gone Labo crazy here at Twinfinite!! We absolutely Labo it, and cannot wait to create our own little Laboratory. Why, if we were a television character, we would most definitely be Sheriff Labo (alright, so that one was a reach). Clearly, Nintendo’s newest little venture has piqued our interest, and we cannot wait to throw all sense of dignity out the window as we don our fantastic cardboard robot armor. Some of the concepts shown in the original trailer were fairly straightforward, like the motorbike handles, whereas others – and yes, the epic flying birdie is included among them – have us rather spellbound.
The sheer scope of the project is huge, and we look forward to seeing what surprises Nintendo have in store. In the meantime, we’ve banged our heads together and come up with a few of our own ideas that could be an excellent fit for the crafty range of accessories. One of them involved a way to lessen the impact of banging heads together because, golly, that hurt!
From the moment the piano appeared onscreen, it was bound to open up people’s minds to all kinds of different instruments. The front-runner is no doubt the guitar, with titles like Guitar Hero and GuitarFreaks having created a huge market for it. The logistics may be a little more tricky than the piano if you want to make it a comfortable size, but let us reiterate: giant robot backpack. Anything is possible.
Beyond that, however, it probably wouldn’t be too difficult to implement the necessary mechanics, particularly since we already have a blueprint for how a gaming guitar can work: a few buttons at the top for the chords, and some sort of apparatus down lower for each individual strum. The versatility of the Joy-Cons could allow for further innovation, including differing notes depending on how you learned with the guitar. Remember tilting the control stick to alter Mikau’s jams, and how deeply satisfied he looked during the process? That could be you!
