"Nintendo Labo has been received positively as a" Nintendo "product since its announcement almost a year ago," said Nintendo Chairman Shuntaro Furukawa during a policy meeting after the news on the report of results of the third quarter of the company.
In comparison, the popular "Super Smash Bros. Ultimate" of Nintendo, which was released recently last month, has already sold more than 12 million copies, making it the third best-selling game developed by Nintendo for the Switch.
But Furukawa noted that Nintendo even knew before the release of the title that you sold and the reception of the Labo kits would be "different from traditional video games like Mario or Zelda," saying that kits are now in classes to 100 primary schools in the United States.
Nintendo Labo said, "he has received prizes and recognitions from various national and international media, in toy categories and other general experiences of consumer products. Therefore, as expected, Nintendo Labo seems to have been accepted by Our consumers differently than traditional video games. "
Furukawa said that Nintendo is expanding its exclusive approach to launch Nintendo Labo kits by joining the KCJ group to create halls with kits. They are planned for Summer 2019 at KidZania Tokyo and KidZania Koshien in Japan.
