Earlier this morning Nintendo unveiled something quite different, aimed at kids or those still young at heart. Nintendo Labo, which merges hobby kits, the Nintendo Switch and innovative software designed to spark and fuel creativity. It's a great concept, where creating and decorating a cardboard piano can turn into the real thing via the Switch console and a JoyCon.

Check it out. Because once you see the more intricate creations made up of cardboard, string, and pulley system, you'll realise that it could be something quite special.

From constructing a house for an Animal Crossing-like experience to a fishing rod and even a robot suit, Nintendo Labo reaffirms that when it comes to Nintendo, always expect the unexpected.

Nintendo Labo launches in Australia and New Zealand on April 20 with two kits; the Variety Kit and the Robot Kit. A little pricey sure - the Variety Kit will launch with a suggested retail price of AU $99.95 and the Robot Kit AU $119.95 - but remember that both kits include the necessary Switch software. Which as per our understanding includes instructional videos plus interactive software and games.

Variety Kit

Toy-Con RC Car: Insert the Left and Right Joy-Con into your newly built RC Car and control its movement using touch screen controls on the Nintendo Switch. The HD rumble feature in the Joy-Con controllers will cause vibrations that move the car in the direction you choose. Materials to construct two RC Cars are included.

Toy-Con Fishing Rod: Construct the Fishing Rod with an active, rotating reel that is attached by string to a cradle holding the Nintendo Switch console. Catch one of many exotic fish shown swimming on the Nintendo Switch screen by casting your Fishing Rod and unwinding the reel to lower the hook. Once you feel a vibration from the Joy-Con inserted in the reel, you must crank the reel quickly and tug the Fishing Rod upwards to try and complete the catch.

Toy-Con House: By inserting various assembled blocks into openings in the sides and bottom of the House, you can interact, feed and play games with a cute creature on the front-facing Nintendo Switch screen. Each differently shaped block is detected by the IR Motion Camera on the Right Joy-Con inserted on top of the House.

Toy-Con Motorbike: Insert each Joy-Con into an assembled set of handlebars to drive a motorbike on the Nintendo Switch screen. Pressing the ignition button starts the engine, twisting the right handle activates the throttle, and leaning your body or turning the handlebars left and right controls the motorbike.

Toy-Con Piano: After assembling a beautifully crafted 13-key piano and inserting the Nintendo Switch console and Joy-Con, you can create your own music by pressing different keys. You can even insert different assembled knobs to create new sound effects and tones.

Robot Kit

Toy-Con Robot: Create a wearable robot suit, and insert the Left and Right Joy-Con into the designated slots on the backpack and visor to assume control of the robot, which is shown on the TV when the Nintendo Switch console is docked. Enjoy a variety of fun game-play experiences, including Robot mode, where you can destroy in-game buildings and UFOs.

A customisation kit full of stickers and tape and other goodies will also be available at launch. For more info on Nintendo Labo, head to the official site.
