Last month, Nintendo revealed its newest and arguably strangest project in recent time: Nintendo Labo. This is a new line of DIY, constructible cardboard toys (called ‘Toy-Cons’) that can be brought to life by interacting with the Switch and Joy-Con controllers. The interaction is achieved via a Labo game for the Switch. Although Nintendo Labo doesn’t launch until April, new details have been gradually rolling out over the past few weeks, and now we have some info about that aforementioned Labo game.

It turns out that in Japan, the My Nintendo Store will be selling Nintendo¬†Labo sets with download codes for the software. The listings are currently on the official website, and they have revealed the download size for the Labo software. According to the listings, in order to download the Labo software, you’ll need to have “1.2GB or more” available on your Switch. This is a pretty small file size compared to most other games on the system, but this isn’t very surprising.

The Labo software will include interactive tutorials for each of the Labo toy-sets, and will also feature mini-games which are controlled by using the Toy-Cons. There is also the ‘Toy-Con Garage’ feature which allows players to program several Switch Joy-Con controllers in order to build there own creations. All of this content is pretty simple so that should explain why the file size of the complete package is so small.

Nintendo Labo will launch on April 20.
