Nintendo Adds Labo Support to Mario Kart 8


Recently, Nintendo made a surprising announcement that the Motorcycle Toy-Con was now compatible with Mario Kart 8 Deluxe on the Switch. As someone who has enjoyed building Labo Toy-Cons but has been underwhelmed with its accompanying software, this is a brilliant bridge between the two concepts. It may be asking a lot to buy a whole Variety Kit just for a motorcycle peripheral for Mario Kart 8, but this is a great way to add value to those who already own it. That said, you can buy the cardboard for just the Motorbike for a few bucks online from Nintendo.

Going forward, I’m excited to see what other games and cardboard mash-ups they have in store. Unlike the Wii peripheral era of the past, it’s fun to build these, the Joy-Cons are responsive enough to handle many different motion control functions, and once you’re done playing with them, simply recycle them or pack them back up in the original box. You don’t have to have these collecting dust in your house until the end of time (looks back at Rock Band instruments collecting dust in the basement). What Labo and Nintendo game mash-up do you want to see next?
