With that success, Nintendo is going full-Nintendo and introducing something completely out of left field - Nintendo Labo. Essentially, the Labo is a number of different paper craft kits you can purchase and then fold to create all manner of wondrous cardboard toys, like pianos or fishing rods or cars!

Of the piano, a Nintendo statement said: "As you play, the IR Motion Camera in the Right Joy-Con detects which keys are pressed and plays each note through the console's built-in speakers".

At launch, we'll be getting a Toy-Con Variety Kit and Toy-Con Robot Kit. The Toy-Cons also interact with the Switch's screen, letting you see the virtual resident in the house Toy-Con or allowing you control the RC cars with the touch screen.

The sets encourage customization with markers, stickers, and more.

Both packages will be available on April 20, with the variety pack available for $69.99 and the robot pack retailing for $79.99. This could possibly point to content in future kits.

Nintendo's reputation for being unpredictable has been taken to new heights with a new system of DIY carboard peripherals called Nintendo Labo.

Since Nintendo put out the Switch on sale last March, the platform only has Hulu as the sole streaming service for US owners.

However, Nintendo have expectations of the Switch doing even better.

"Something" related to Nintendo is inbound in some days that will make the internet explode again, according to an Ubisoft employee.

This is a great idea, and such a novel thing to do with a games console.

Nintendo is preparing to make a reveal at 10pm tonight for a "new interactive experience" on the Switch.

"With Nintendo Labo, building is just as much fun as playing". Do you live in the NYC of San Francisco areas? While the new console looked a little quirky, and went in a completely different direction to the 4K-obsessed PS4 Pro and Xbox One X, the Switch delivered on big exclusives, made portable.
