The company continues to think of ways to differentiate themselves from the rest of the competition; they recently announced Nintendo Labo, a line of accessories for the Switch that are made of cardboard. The console's JoyCon controllers would then fit inside these accessories Nintendo surprised gamers and investors alike by unveiling new cardboard accessories which interact with games for its Switch console. Catch one of many exotic fish shown swimming on the Nintendo Switch screen by casting your Fishing Rod and unwinding the reel to lower the hook. The Japanese gaming giant deems those creations "Toy-Cons".

Nintendo is hoping its newest gadget will appeal to kids and their vivid imaginations, allowing them to bring their favorite games into the physical world.

There will be two Nintendo Labo kits.

When Labo launches on April 20, it'll cost buyers a minimum of $69.99 for the cheapest kit. Shares of Nintendo rose as much as 3.3 percent in Tokyo after the unveiling. If you have a Nintendo Switch you soon will be able to. There'll also be a $10 Customization Kit available that includes stencils, stickers, and colored tape.

After the Wii and the Switch, it's fair to say that Nintendo is no stranger to quirky innovation.

For example, you can plug the console's controllers into the vehicle, and it will move around thanks to the controllers' vibrations, responding to users' input from the Switch's touchscreen. This will include 2 RC cars, a fishing rod, a house, a motorbike and a piano.

When the keys are played, musical notes are heard from the console. In the case of the motorcycle Labo, each of the Switch's "Joy-Con" gamepads are inserted into the handlebars, and the Switch itself (the screen) is placed in the center. Users place the Switch's Joy-Con controllers and the tablet itself into the creations to play the games.

Instead, this feels like an exercise in ultimate planned obsolescence - Nintendo expects you to sink $70 or $80 (depending on the version you go for) into a game that can only be played a few times before it bends, breaks, and falls apart. It reminds me a lot of those viral videos where people make hands out of cardboard and bands, but these actually assist you in playing games.
