Who had “build your own cardboard mech/piano/fishing rod” on their Nintendo Announcement bingo card?
"I couldn't afford a present this year, so I got you this box."
"That's what I got you!"
Price: Variety kit is $70, includes 2 RC cars, fishing rod, house, motorbike, piano. Wearable robot kit is $80. Includes software.
As a Magic: The Gathering player, I'm totally cool with paying $80 for cardboard
I just love how damn unafraid Nintendo are of taking risks. Whether this is a huge success or falls flat on its face I'm glad we have companies like this in the industry that really strive for innovative, creative and just straight up unthinkable ways of playing.
Most video game companies: VR is the future of video games.
what a bizarre way to announce animal crossing
Calling it now. They are going to release a Switch down the road where the box it comes in is one of these things.
Looks like there is some level of customisation/very simple programming possible https://i.imgur.com/k50Ox0Q.png
- if that's at all flexible then people will come up with some very cool stuff.
I'm very into it. using rumble for vibration robots is such a clever idea.
That's brilliant how the Piano works: The key is the joy-con in the back of the piano, using the IR camera built into that joy-con to detect which key or keys are being pushed down. An actually really clever use of the IR Camera I'd have never thought of.
So like those weird Wiimote accessories but cardboard.
EDIT: Pricing. Toy-con (interesting name) variety kit (it has all of the smaller things from the video): $70 US. the Toy-con robot kit is $80.
EDIT 2: Yes, it does include the software, so it's priced like a special edition.
McDOnald's are going to make a killing when their Happy Meal boxes become a game
So this is what happened to Project Giant Robot. That's kinda cool, I just assumed it was dead
