Nintendo Labo: It's a Thing™. We never know what to expect from Nintendo on the best of days, but its upcoming set of constructible cardboard accessories for the Nintendo Switch is truly worthy of a double-take. Maybe a triple-take.
The Labo sure looks fun, and I admit it's nice to see game system accessories that will safely biodegrade after a few years. I have enough plastic trash on my conscience, thank you. The Guardian's already gone hands-on with the Labo, and it came away very impressed.
Playing is believing, of course, and if you live in New York City or San Francisco, you can try out Labo for yourself. The cost of entry is at least one child between the ages of 6 and 12. Don't worry; you'll get them back when you're done the session, which should be about three hours.
If you want to sign up for a Labo preview, visit Nintendo's official site for the product and choose your location. The New York City session takes place from February 2 through 3, and San Francisco's session takes place from March 2 through 4.
Space is very limited, so if you're interested, hurry, hurry, hurry. Enrollment will stop on January 21 at 11:59 p.m. PT, or until all the spots are filled.
