Joining the seemingly endless amount of data flooding in this morning thanks to Nintendo’s financial report, it has been confirmed that Nintendo Labo Toy-Con 01: Variety Kit has now surpassed the one million sales mark.
Labo has been an intriguing release right from the start – not just because of its creativity from a gameplay perspective, but also as a new venture for Nintendo itself. Being a Nintendo release, we’re sure many fans of the company have snapped up a kit or two to see what it’s all about, but Labo has always been seen as a product for the non-gaming audience in Nintendo’s eyes.
As such, comparing its sales figures to other Nintendo games might not be ideal. Other major Switch games, like Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, dwarf the cardboard curiosity’s sales totals, but they aren’t fighting in the same ring. Nintendo hopes that Labo will grow as its own platform, selling “for a very long time at a very steady pace”.
Do you think Labo will continue to grow as Nintendo hopes, or would you consider this figure to be a slight disappointment? Share your thoughts with us in the comments.
