The search for Australia and New Zealand’s greatest Nintendo Labo creations begins on 19th July with the Nintendo Labo Creators Contest – with a special Nintendo Switch system prize.
The search for Australia and New Zealand’s greatest Nintendo Labo creations and customisations has begun with the launch of the Nintendo Labo Creators Contest for Australia and New Zealand.
Whether you’re a master inventor or a creative spirit, anyone can take part and have a chance to win some amazing prizes, including a special Nintendo Switch system.
Entrants can submit their creations in two different age categories:
- Kids: In this category, children aged 11 and under can submit an original Toy-Con creation or customisation. You can even get some help from a parent or guardian.
- Teens / Adults: For kids at heart, aspiring Toy-Con creators and decorators aged 12 and above can submit their creations in this category.
Creators in either category are tasked with either submitting a new, original Toy-Con project using Toy-Con Garage, a mod of an existing Toy-Con, or your own uniquely decorated Toy-Con.
Submissions will start on the Nintendo Labo website on 19th July and close on 7th September, but entrants can start preparing right now.
The overall winner in each category will receive a very special prize: a special Nintendo Switch system designed to look like cardboard. Finalists will receive a Joy-Con Pair customised with the same design.
Also announced, players can now race in Mario Kart 8 Deluxe in TV mode using the Toy-Con Motorbike, or insert the Nintendo Switch console directly into the Motorbike’s dashboard to play it on-the-go.
Players can select the Motorbike as a compatible controller from the main menu and use the Toy-Con Motorbike from the Nintendo Labo Toy-Con 01: Variety Kit.
Whether using Toy-Con Motorbike or any of the other supported controllers, additional driving options such as Smart Steering and auto-accelerate are available to help newcomers get back on track.
Mario Kart 8 Deluxe is the first game outside of Nintendo Labo software to receive Toy-Con support, and more titles will be compatible with Nintendo Labo in the future.
More details can be found on the Nintendo Labo Website.
