Nintendo Labo Pre-Orders Live in the U.K.


Good news for Nintendo fans living in the U.K. Nintendo’s online store for the region is now offering pre-orders on Nintendo Labo’s kits.

Nintendo rolled out direct purchases for both upcoming Nintendo Labo kits this week, with both the Toy-Con Variety Kit and the Toy-Con Robot Kit in stock online. The former comes with various cardboard sheets that can be built into small objects that are used in conjunction with the Nintendo Switch, from a doll house to a piano.

Meanwhile, the Robot Kit lets players wear a cardboard robot outfit that works in conjunction with the Nintendo Switch for a special robot-themed game.

Users who pre-order either kit from the Nintendo store receive a free Nintendo Labo Customization Set, which lets players add stickers, tape, and paint decals to their Labo creations. Normally, the set goes for £8.99 in the U.K. and $9.99 in the U.S., with the Variety Kit running for £59.99 (or $69.99 USD) and the Robot Kit available at £69.99 ($79.99 USD).

Meanwhile overseas, Nintendo of America doesn’t have an official listing for Nintendo Labo on the Nintendo Online Store quite yet. Instead, the U.S. Nintendo Labo website redirects users to pre-orders from various American retailers, including Amazon, Best Buy, GameStop, and Target.

No official redirects are provided for the Nintendo Labo Customization Set, which is already sold out at Target and unavailable on Amazon in the States.
