Original article: Nintendo is giving away a Labo-inspired Switch to crafty fans
Written by Jason Ganos

It’s been a few months since Labo hit the scene and Nintendo wants you to know that it’s still supporting the cardboard creations. Not only did Nintendo announce that the Labo Motorcycle is now compatible with Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, but they also went ahead and unveiled a brand-new Labo Creators Contest with some pretty snazzy prizes.

Starting July 19th, Nintendo challenges Labo fans to create a musical instrument or a unique gaming experience using Labo. The best creations will win some amazing Labo gear, including jackets, framed certifactes, and best of all, a Labo-inspired Nintendo Switch console with a cardboard themed paint job.

Think you have what it takes? You can enter the Labo Creators Contest from July 19th until August 20th. Head over to the official contest page for more details. Good luck!
