Nintendo's Giving Away a Switch That Looks Like Cardboard

Nintendo Switch

The Toy-Con Motorbike comes in the Labo Variety Pack, along with the fishing rod and piano, and uses the Switch's Joy-Con controllers to turn cardboard handlebars into motion controllers.

But that's not the only exciting news for Nintendo Labo owners this week!

Nintendo is capitalizing on the vast success of its Switch console by using it to promote the kid-friendly Nintendo Labo platform. Drifting, braking, and throwing items are all handled by pressing their corresponding Joy-Con buttons.

For North American contestants, the Nintendo Labo Creators Contest will begin accepting entries on July 19 and end August 20. Victor gets a custom faux-cardboard Switch.

The FDA took pains to specify that clearing Epidiolex for use is not an approval of marijuana or any of its components. Federal agencies have 90 days to determine the scheduling of Epidiolex.

Now, Nintendo is temping gamers with a special cardboard Switch only available through a Nintendo Labo contest. Those with the best creations will earn a number of prizes, potentially including a cardboard-themed Nintendo Switch. Eight runners-up will get the limited edition Joy-Con, Nintendo Labo Creators Jacket and an award certificate.

Oh, and if you don't have the proper Nintendo Labo accessory to take advantage of the new control method, not to worry. It wasn't made to appeal to them. Or, more accurately, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe is getting Labo support.

Mario Kart 8 Deluxe is the first game outside of Nintendo Labo software to receive Toy-Con support, and more titles will be compatible with Nintendo Labo in the future. Nintendo notes that after downloading the patch (which should prompt when you try to start it up), "Simply select the Nintendo Labo icon on the game's title screen to access a menu where you can select Toy-Con as the control type".
