    The Nintendo Direct wasn’t all that Nintendo had to show this week, as a surprise trailer has gone up on their channel, showing off something unexpected. A belt-like object is featured in the video, being used in a variety of ways, such as a bow, a steering wheel, and on one’s leg as a fitness tracker. The product seems to have a focus on multiplayer gatherings and parties, with players needing one of the belt-like devices and a Joy-Con strapped in to make use of it. More information and details are scheduled to be revealed on September 12th.

    That actually looks pretty versatile for different scenarios. I'm intrigued.

    If I can't play it on the toilet then it is contradictive to the Switch's portable mode.

    Its a new experience because its made out of cardboard like the Nintendo Labo kits.

    It has a portable mode not a bathroom mode :P

    So I just woke up, but after watching that, before reading any of these comments, I'm disturbed by some of those thrusts. Gameplay of some sort would have helped, at least a little.

    It'll be a cold day in hell when Nintendo stops making goofy stuff like this.

    Never change, Ninty.

    This will likely be 3D printed by literally everyone.

    Or made in NINTENDO LABO BABY
