Nintendo doubles down on Labo cardboard kits with new editions for cars, planes and submarines

Nintendo has always marched to the beat of its own drum among gaming giants and nowhere is that more clear than with . The company is doubling down on the product, which and allows users to build cardboard kits that turn Nintendo Switch controllers into a variety of things like musical instruments, a house or even a robot pack. In September, Nintendo will release the next generation of Labo kits focused on vehicles like cars, airplanes and submarines. A YouTube video unveiling the new Nintendo Labo kits shows a kid switching between the various steering and control setups within the same game as a vehicle toggles between car, plane and boat. The kits debut Sept. 14 at a cost of $69.99. The kits are essentially Nintendo’s take on augmented reality.

If you missed the first few rounds of excitement about , you’ve got another shot at paying a normal price. NES and SNES Classic consoles aren’t always easy to find, but they’re now available from Amazon for and . You can place an order for either right now, though be aware that the NES Classic won’t ship until it’s back in stock on August 12 and the SNES Classic looks like it’ll be back on August 3 — a pretty reasonable wait for a sure thing. Update: It looks like stock of the NES Classic may have already run out in the course of the last few minutes, though the SNES version is still available at its normal retail price of $79.99 (and let’s be real, it was the best console). They seem to be dropping in and out of availability, so try refreshing! When they were first introduced, the reimagined versions of two of the best-loved consoles of all-time arrived to feverish demand.

The consoles reappeared in and but sold out quickly. Even with the repeat appearances, it’s been hard to keep track of when and where the things go on sale. If you’re reading this and you’ve yet to score a one-way ticket to nostalgic 8- or 16-bit euphoria, the Amazon listings look like a sure bet — for the moment, anyhow.
