Youtuber creates his own cardboard Mario Kart Arcade | Digital Trends Spanish

Nintendo Labo is a concept released by the Big N in 2018. They are construction kits with pre-cut cardboard pieces that can be transformed into toys and accessories for the Nintendo Switch.

It is something similar to the Google Cardboard virtual reality viewer that was launched in 2014, which was used by coupling it to a cell phone. On the Nintendo side, Labo’s cardboard accessories – ranging from a piano to a motorcycle handlebar to a fishing pole – are used with the Joy-Con.

The project is a bit forgotten, since in recent years Nintendo has not released anything under that concept. But youtuber called DanCreator, has developed its own cardboard device to play on the Switch in the purest Nintendo Labo style: a cabinet of Mario Kart Arcade.

The creation of youtuber is a variation of the official arcade arcade, as the software is exclusive to that platform and is not available for any Nintendo console. That is why inside the cardboard arcade, DanCreator has placed a Switch that is connected to a television and that runs Mario Kart 8 Deluxe.

The cabinet and adjustable seat are made entirely of cardboard pieces, including the steering wheel and accelerator pedal, which contain a Joy-Con inside with a motion sensor. Finally, for an even more complete experience, the arcade is complemented by LED lights and speakers.

DanCreator’s arcade is an excellent alternative to be able to play Mario Kart Arcade at home. Although it is made of cardboard, it is not an easy process to create the pieces and assemble them, but in any case it means savings, especially if we consider that the real Mario Kart arcade costs $ 11,500 dollars.

On the other hand, the idea of ​​creating cardboard accessories – like this arcade – is to extend the gameplay with peripherals that can be taken apart and recycled in the future. That way, accessories do not accumulate in the corners of the house when they are not used, like the guitars of Guitar hero, for example, that use considerable space.
