After building several unique Toy-Con creations using Nintendo Labo:
Vehicle Kit, there are plenty of games and features to explore. Here are
a few experiences shown in the video:

  • A closer look at Adventure, one of the included games, in which
    you get to explore a mysterious world featuring pyramids, an
    archeological dig site, snowy mountains and much more. Use the Toy-Con
    Key creation to seamlessly swap between a car, plane and submarine to
    explore the deepest depths and highest heights of the world. Interact
    with a variety of intriguing characters as you explore and complete
    different missions solo or co-op with a friend.
    • Each vehicle is controlled using the various Toy-Con projects you
      build with the included materials in the Vehicle Kit. And each has
      different controls and special moves in the game – launch a
      grappling hook with your submarine, do a barrel roll and shoot
      missiles with your plane, perform wheelies and deploy saw blades
      or bombs with your car, and more!
  • Different included games offer a variety of fun experiences: In Rally,
    you pass through checkpoints while racing to the goal. Circuit
    is a racing game with a twist – you can launch punches at opponents! Slot
    Cars
    is a classic game that is controlled using only the Toy-Con
    Pedal. And in Battle, you can participate in one-on-one
    automotive combat with other players*.
  • Paint Studio uses the Toy-Con Spray Can to let you personalize
    your in-game vehicles – and the driver! Gently shake it to feel and
    hear the "ball" inside as you mix up the paint.
  • Custom Controls, a new feature for Nintendo Labo, lets you make
    your own controllers for the included games with common household
    items. Want to ride a broom to steer the plane? How about drawing
    button controls on a customized screen protector when playing in
    Handheld Mode? Go ahead! It's a great way to get started with building
    your own Toy-Con creations.
  • With the Toy-Con Car, Key and Pedal, you'll also be able to race
    against your friends* in the Mario
    Kart 8 Deluxe
    game for Nintendo Switch shortly after launch
    (Nintendo Switch and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe sold separately).
