Nintendo is holding a second Nintendo Labo creation contest in North America and Europe, and the grand prize is a really nice-looking Nintendo Labo-themed custom Nintendo Switch console. Both the system, joy-cons, and dock look like they were made from cardboard.
There are two categories to enter in the North American contest and three categories in Europe. For North American contestants, the first category asks creators to make a musical instrument, while the second category asks creators to make a game. The entries must be uploaded as a YouTube video demo and will be judged on quality, creativity, and spirit.
European contestants can enter a "creation" category where they must used the Toy-Con Garage to come with anything they'd like, and a "customization" category which will judge contestants on how they use stickers, pens, and other creative materials to customize Labo kits. The last category is specifically for kids up to the age of 12 who can submit an original Toy-Con invention or customized kit.
The grand prize winner of each category will receive a custom Nintendo Switch inspired by Nintendo Labo, a Nintendo Labo Creators jacket, and a framed award certificate signed by Nintendo Labo developers. Four runner-ups will receive a pair of Labo-inspired Joy-Cons and a Nintendo Labo Creators jacket.
The grand prize Nintendo Labo-inspired Switch is really something else, with little details that really sell the whole cardboard-aesthetic. For more on Nintendo Labo, check out our complete Nintendo Labo guide or head over to the Nintendo Labo website for contest details.
