    Nintendo Labo's controversial and excited pre-release turned into quiet discussions shortly after its official release on April 27 of this year. Now, Nintendo's putting the spotlight back onto its cardboard creations with two new announcements. The first of which is that the Labo is now compatible with Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, letting players race by using the Toy-Con motorbike handle.


    Secondly, a new Creator's Contest has been revealed, which will be starting on July 19. Nintendo wants players to create a musical instrument or gaming experience with Labo, and have them submit their project via YouTube and send the video in.

    The winner of the contest will receive a limited Nintendo Switch system with a special paint design that looks cardboard-like in appearance. Four runner ups will get Joy-Cons that share that same design. Competition ends on August 20.

    You can see the contest rules here

    thats just aweful...
    they probably saw the popularity of everything with the word "labo" in it rising up, not realizing that it was because people hate the idea

    Actually I haven't seen that much hate for Labo, definitely some disappointment but most people seemed pleasantly surprised by it from what I saw

    If you already have a Switch to enter the contest with, why would you need a second one?

    because there will only be 1 of them then the person who got it would be able to sell it for a really high price!

    Casual players yes. And this is obviously intended for casual players, but hey, I'm using tilt controls!

    No thanks I don't wanna have to turn my head every 2 seconds to race. That seems very annoying how the screen turns also.

    Actually Labo got pretty much only positive feedback, only cons with it is its price that is a little too much, thats all...
