Earlier this year Nintendo unveiled the Labo. Some saw this as a gimmick, while others welcomed this. At this point though, Labo has actually done pretty well, or at least well enough to please Nintendo. This is according to Nintendo of America President Reggie Fils-Aime who spoke to Forbes.
When asked if the Labo has met the company’s expectations, he replied that it has. “So it’s absolutely met our expectations, and to put this in perspective, we see Nintendo Labo as a title and a platform that will sell for extended periods of time, much like we experienced with Brain Age on the DS or Wii Fit on the original Wii.”
If you are unfamiliar with the Labo, they are basically a set of DIY kits made out of cardboard that can be put together and paired with the Nintendo Switch. Then users can program it to do a variety of things. Some users have even turned the Labo into a controller for an electric wheelchair or used it as musical instruments.
It is an interesting initiative by the company for sure. While we don’t know where it will go from here, so far it has done very well for the company.
