With Nintendo Labo releasing in North America today, Nintendo has detailed the prices for the replacement parts. Nintendo Labo is a cardboard-based interactive gaming craft set in which you use pre-provided templates to build gaming peripherals.
Through a combination of Nintendo Switch’s IR technology, and reflector strips on the cardboard, users can build peripheral devices to control a host of mini-games with. There’s a giant robot, RC car, fishing rod, garage, motorbike handles, piano and more. And of course, with it being made of cardboard pieces and all, there’s a high possibility that you may break or damage the kit in some way. Luckily, it seems that it is possible to order individual pieces of a kit rather than having to purchase the whole thing again. The full details are as follows:
