It seems like you can\u2019t go anywhere in the gaming community without hearing something about VR. It has taken over this industry, and for good reason. The immersive environments it lets users explore are downright breathtaking. Some VR headsets truly make you feel like you\u2019re actually in the game.\r\n\r\nSince VR has become a massive hit, many wondered if Nintendo would ever venture into the market. According to recent reports, it appears they have plans to. Now, they\u2019re not unveiling a traditional VR headset like PlayStation and Google have done. Instead, they're planning to sell a kit that families can put together on their own.\r\n\r\nThese kits will be from the Labo line, which can turn the ever-popular Nintendo Switch into a VR console. In theory, this seems like a brilliant idea. We have yet to see this take on virtual reality. The customization possibilities are enticing to think about, as not every gamer wants the same thing. Nintendo knows this. They\u2019re actively trying to do something that no VR headset manufacturer has done before.\r\n\r\nThese VR cardboard kits will include several different components, including a camera, blaster, safety cap, screen holder, and VR goggles. Everything needed to transform the Nintendo Switch's portable screen into a virtual reality headset is included. The starting price of the kit will be $79. That\u2019s not bad considering most VR headsets today range into the hundreds.\r\n\r\nNintendo is also offering a basic starter kit, which is much more affordable and comes with only the blaster and the VR goggles. Putting these cardboard pieces together shouldn\u2019t prove difficult, either. That\u2019s because each kit comes with a set of directions, which are concise and easy to follow.\r\n\r\nThis is a home run for Nintendo. They\u2019ve always been a gaming company highlighting the importance of family-fun experiences. This VR venture seems to be family-friendly as well. Families who don\u2019t want to spend hundreds and hundreds of dollars on VR equipment can purchase these cardboard kits stress-free.\r\n\r\nThe only pause for concern is the durability of these cardboard kits. Hopefully, they\u2019re structured to where they can take some wear and tear. Still, Nintendo\u2019s entry into the VR sector is showing a lot of promise. There are many gamers who forgo these gaming experiences because there is such a price barrier to entry associated with modern VR headsets.\r\n\r\nThat doesn\u2019t seem to be the case with Nintendo. The kits are expected to hit the market on April 12<sup>th<\/sup>.
