Labo has proven to be one of the more intriguing creations to come from Nintendo during the Switch era thus far. While the current Labo build kits are likely keeping a lot of fans busy at the moment, Nintendo today made some interesting new announcements for the future of Labo.

Players that own the Nintendo Labo: Variety Kit can now use the Toy-Con motorbike as a control option in Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. The game’s update is available tonight, so Labo fans should be able to use the new control option immediately! According to Nintendo, Toy-Con functionality will be added to future games, as well, though no specific announcements have been made at this time.

In addition, Nintendo also announced a contest open to residents of the US and Canada (excluding Quebec). Labo builders over the age of 13 can submit their best gaming experience using Toy-Con Garage, as well as their greatest musical instrument creations. There are a handful of prizes available, but the cardboard-inspired Labo Switch and Labo Joy-Con controllers should prove to be quite the collector’s items! Full details for the contest can be found here.

Do you plan on entering the Labo contest? How do you feel about Toy-Con compatibility being added to more Switch games? Sound off in the comments below!
