Nintendo has released a Nintendo Labo Christmas game in Japan, just in time for the holidays, beefing up the already robust selection of entertainment available to use with your strange cardboard creations.

If you've been living under a rock, Nintendo Labo is a piece of software that has some very unique games. What's special about these games is the fact that they make use of real-world cardboard constructions that make use of the Nintendo Switch game console and its controllers, giving players the capability to create interesting new controllers without having to spend hundreds of dollars.


Now, a brand-new experience for Christmas has been released for free to all current owners of the game.

What's in the Free Nintendo Labo Christmas Game?

Japanese Nintendo reports that a brand-new minigame has arrived for Nintendo Labo, just in time for Christmas.

Unsurprisingly, this particular game is titled Christmas. This new minigame makes use of the Labo VR kit, so you're probably going to want to have that ready to go if you haven't gotten it already.


The gameplay is rather simple overall — you are controlling Santa and you want to get him to enter a nearby chimney. Players can move with the analog stick, jump with the A button, and execute a roll with the B button.

A total of 14 mini-games have been released in Japan so far, but not all of them have made it to the West. We don't yet know if or when this new minigame will be making its way to the U.S. and European eShops — hopefully, it won't be too long of a wait for the company's Western fans to have fun stuffing Santa down a chimney!
