What’s Different Between the Nintendo Labo Variety Kit and the Nintendo Labo Robot Kit?
If you’re a big Nintendo fan, you’ve probably heard that Nintendo has just revealed Nintendo Labo, a new way for players to interact with their games. The whole thing requires players to build up the bits of cardboard that come in the box to create a number of cool, real-life creations. Once you’ve built them, though, you can bring them to life with your Nintendo Switch. A cardboard fishing rod can be used to reel in fish on the Switch’s screen, or it can give you a peek inside the cardboard house you just made. If you were sold by what you saw in the Nintendo Labo trailer, but aren’t sure whether you should get the Variety Kit or the Robot Kit, let us run you through the differences.
The Variety Kit comes with all of the more minor experiences you saw in the trailer. That means you’ll be able to drive around the RC cars, reel in virtual fish with your cardboard fishing rod, speed around on the motorbike, and play a mini piano. This, of course, comes with the software so you can interact with the different creations that come in the box. The Nintendo Labo Variety Kit will set you back $69.99 if that’s what you’re after.
For those who were completely enamored by the robot suit and game, as you may have guessed, you’ll want to go for the Robot Kit. This will come with all the bits of cardboard you’ll need to piece the suit together, as well as the Robot Kit software so you can get down to smashing stuff up on your Switch. The Nintendo Labo Robot Kit is a little bit pricier, though, coming in at $79.99.
That’s about everything you need to know regarding the differences between the two different Labo Kits available to preorder now.
