In addition to Mario Kart 8 Deluxe receiving Nintendo Labo support, Nintendo of Europe had one more Labo related announcement today: the Nintendo Labo Creators Contest. One of my mostly highly rated features reviewed from the Nintendo Labo Variety and Robot kits was the ToyCon Garage. The ToyCon Garage allowed you to create your very own ToyCon with some mostly simple coding.
If you have had any brilliant ideas while playing around with the ToyCon Garage, it may be worth becoming your own Edison and making that idea a reality yourself. Nintendo of Europe are holding a special contest where the best creators will win themselves a specially designed Nintendo Switch console that looks like cardboard… don’t worry though, we’ve been rest assure that the console will still not get soggy if you leave it out in the rain, though it still probably isn’t a good idea to do so anyway!
There are three different categories you can enter, which means there are three different ways to win:
- Creations: Got an idea for your own original Toy-Con creation? Grab some cardboard sheets, dive into Toy-Con Garage and see where your creativity takes you – the sky’s the limit!
- Customisations: Break out the pens, paints, stickers, stencils and anything you can find, and show us your one-of-a-kind customised Toy-Con designs!
- Kids: In this category, children up to the age of 12 can submit an original Toy-Con creation or customisation. You can even get some help from a parent or guardian.
The submission period will take place between the 19th July 2018 and the 7th September 2018, but it still may be a good idea to start now so that you can submit your videos and photos ready for when submissions open next month!
You can find out more about the contest here. Happy creating and best of luck!
I am a huge Nintendo fan, hence why NintyBuzz exists. I especially love all things Zelda and Metroid. NintyBuzz was started by me back in the Summer of 2014, it started out mainly as a hobby, though the site has gradually grown, and I hope it grows for many years to come!
