ALL HAIL THE VIRTUAL *checks* CARDBIRD.
Nintendo is taking another swing at Labo, and returning to VR at the same time.
The fourth Labo kit will be a kit themed around virtual reality, and launch on April 12. The kits will support the Switch being used for the screens, and the Joy-Con will be used for tracking. Six kits will be available: VR Goggles, Blaster, Camera, Bird, Elephant, and Wind Pedal.
There will be two sets sold in stores on April 12: the VR Kit, which includes all six kits for US$79.99/C$99.99, and the Starter Kit which includes the software, VR Goggles, and Blaster for $39.99/$49.99. Purchasers of the starter pack can buy the other kits for $19.99/$24.99 (Elephant+Camera, Wind Pedal+Toy Bird) exclusively from the Nintendo online store.
Nintendo World Report indicated on February 15 that a VR experiment was in the works at Nintendo, with many similarities to the Labo kit. Some of the kits were also spotted in the initial reveal trailer for Labo from January 2018, including the bird and camera.
This story has been updated to clarify how the expansion sets will be sold.
