Nintendo Labo Toy-Con 04 VR Kit For Switch Will Arrive On April 12

I bet you didn’t see this coming. We are talking about Virtual Reality (VR) for Nintendo Switch. It is happening, though, and it is part of Nintendo’s Labo DIY cardboard-building gaming peripherals that debuted in January 2018, under a series known Toy-Con (which is NOT a toy convention, btw). The aim of Nintendo Labo is make Switch funner, like it not already is. I have to admit. It is kind of fun to see boxy cardboard robotic suit, fishing pole, steering wheel et cetera. Anywho, Nintendo Labo Toy-Con 04: VR Kit, as it is called, is the latest to join the Toy-Con family. Continue reading Nintendo Labo Toy-Con 04 VR Kit For Switch Will Arrive On April 12

Then we came across this: the Nintendo Flex Concept by industrial designer YJ Yoon. Continue reading If Nintendo Ever Want To Reboot The GameBoy, The Flex Should Be It

Nintendo Announced Special Edition Pokémon: Let’s Go Switch Console

Thanks to Pokémon Go, gamers realized that Pokémon is a game best played everywhere. However, that does not stop Nintendo from riding on the still-hot Pokémon hype and go back to its RPG root with Pokémon: Let’s Go, Pikachu! and Let’s Go, Eevee!. Similarly, that did stop it from doling out a Nintendo Switch Pikachu & Eevee Edition with Pokémon: Let’s Go, Pikachu! (or Pokémon: Let’s Go, Eevee!) + Poké Ball Plus. So, if you haven’t got yourself a Nintendo Switch and you happen to be a huge fan of Pokémon, this may be a good time to dive into the world of Nintendo Switch.

This Poké Ball Won’t Hold Monsters, But It Sure Will Contain Your Lunch

The Pokémon fad may seems to be faded, but it really has not. I still see many people, young and old, filling out the parks every now and then to catch digital creatures lurking in the wild. Well, for these people, they are probably the ones feverish enough to want this: Poké Ball Lunch Case, AKA Poké Ball Lunchbox. Obviously, this 6 1/2 inches wide by 5 inches tall contraption is not for catching Pokémon, but it will, however, provide a safe place for your lunch.

Nintendo Labo Adds Vehicle Kit, Lets You Drive, Fly And Command A Sub

I am sure you remember Nintendo’s cardboard-based gaming peripherals under its Labo series. The new Toy Cons is a Vehicle Kit that will let you drive, fly and even command a submarine like how they should be controlled. The Nintendo Switch Labo Vehicle Kit includes Car, Pedal, Plane, Key, and Submarine. The Car is presented as a steering wheel with various controls. The Pedal is what it says it is. The Plane is an aircraft control stick and the Submarine is a contraption that I don’t really understand. It is a box with dual steering wheel of sort, one on each side of the box. And then there is the key, which is a ‘magical’ accessory enabled by a Joy-Con controller. Continue reading Nintendo Labo Adds Vehicle Kit, Lets You Drive, Fly And Command A Sub

Anker Has The First Nintendo Switch-certified Portable Charger

We don’t need to tell you obvious caveat of portable gadgets. If you need a gentle reminder, then the caveat would be those gadgets will run out of juice. The groundbreaking console/handheld gaming device hybrid, Nintendo Switch, is no exception. Thankfully, solution exists to keep it juice on the go, but there aren’t one that’s “officially” recognized by the console maker – that’s until now. Meet the Anker PowerCore Nintendo Switch Portable Charger (basically, power bank, or portable battery) – the first Nintendo-certified portable Switch charger.

Nintendo Poké Ball Plus Lets You Catch Pokémon Like It Was Meant To Be

Nintendo has announced a new Nintendo Switch accessory that will boost the realism of Pokémon experience. Meet the Poké Ball Plus, an actual Poké Ball that lets you catch Pokémon like it was meant to be, i.e. throwing it at the Pokémon and not swiping your finger on a touch display. But that is as far as realism goes. The truth is, you are not going to hurl this precious little ball and expecting it not to break. It will. That’s why, like any motion controller, it comes with a hand strap, so won’t actually crack your very expensive flat TV when you use it on the new Nintendo Switch Pokémon games (such as Let’s Go Pikachu! and Let’s Go Eevee!) which it also works with.
