The creative and innovative Nintendo Labo released in April last year and many have been curious as to how it performed. In a recent interview with Kyoto Shimbun, Nintendo president Shuntaro Furukawa touched on this. While Labo hasn’t taken the world by storm like other Nintendo products, it has been selling steadily and Furukawa says that they are continuing to work on the concept to provide more intriguing sets which he hopes will be smash hits.
Nintendo Labo was an innovative, new set of games that incorporated aspects of engineering. How has it been going?
It hasn’t sold as well as our other hit games have, but we did have an increase in sales for Labo during the end of the year. There are many new ways to experience Labo, and we’re working on formulating new methods that convey its allure so Labo’s sales will have longer legs.
