Talk of Nintendo making a return to virtuality reality has been rumored for months now and last Friday Nintendo made it official by unveiling the Labo VR Kit.

The build-it-yourself VR experience for the Nintendo Switch has been specially designed to work within the Switch’s processing power while also reducing the risk of users getting dizzy or sick while playing. The kit will cost roughly $40 and comes with basic goggles and a gun-like controller. There is also an $80 version that comes with controllers that resemble a camera, an elephant trunk, a bird, and a pedal.
