Cardboard-Themed Nintendo Switch Up For Grabs

Nintendo is offering several Labo-themed prizes for the company's upcoming Creators Contest. The contest begins July 19 and continues through August 20. Some of the prizes are collectible Nintendo Switch accessories with custom cardboard paint designs.

One grand prize winner will receive a collectable Nintendo Switch system with a cardboard-themed paint job, a Labo Creators jacket, and a framed award certificate. Four runner-ups will win a pair of Joy-Con controllers with a cardboard-themed paint job and a Labo Creators jacket.

There are two categories that contestants can enter: Best Toy-Con Musical Instrument and Best Gaming Experience Using Toy-Con Garage. The first asks for musical instruments created with Toy-Con Garage, whether the instrument already exists or comes from a contestant's imagination. The latter category accepts games created in Toy-Con Garage that display both quality and creativity. Regardless of which category you choose, Nintendo asks entrants submit a YouTube video of their creation in action to enter the contest. If you've previously submitted a creation to a past Creators Contest, you can resubmit it into this one if you want.

This contest is only the most recent development in Nintendo's continued support of the Labo. The company also released a trailer for a Mario Kart 8 Deluxe update that adds Toy-Con compatibility to the game, allowing players to drive with the Motorbike Toy-Con from the Nintendo Labo Variety Kit as they race around the track.
