The question arose on Reddit whether Nintendo has stopped producing Labo. Allegedly, the company should no longer offer the products.
Nintendo Labo is probably dead
Nintendo itself has not yet commented on the status of Labo, but there are some indications that we won't see any more products about it. It's not that easy to find all Labo articles in stores. And it's getting harder every month. It seems that retailers are only selling the remaining stock and are no longer adding any new goods. And even with the items that are still available, there are occasional sales with special offers. It seems like Nintendo Labo (buy now € 16.31 ) just let them die quietly and secretly.
In any case, the Labo concept was very interesting and innovative. The different sets consisted of cardboard sheets that could be assembled into models. In combination with the Joy-Cons of the Switch and the console itself, it was possible to develop interesting game concepts. Players could build fishing rods and catch fish in a game, or they could build a VR headset and use it to play The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, for example. A piano that could be played properly was also possible. But apparently the principle has not prevailed. This could also have been due to the fact that when you bought a set you always had the feeling that you had just bought a little cardboard at a high price.
Whether new sets will appear or Nintendo is working on something new that is similarly innovative cannot be said at the moment.
We give all readers daily free news, articles, guides, videos and podcasts on their favorite games. So far we have financed this site through advertising and kept it as free of clickbaits or paid items as possible, but since COVID-19 this has become increasingly difficult. Many companies are cutting or cutting their advertising budgets for 2020. Budgets that we unfortunately have to rely on if we want to continue to offer PC games free of charge as usual in the future.
For this reason we turn to you now. As a PC Games supporter, you can support us so that we can continue to offer our content in the usual form for free without introducing a paywall or publishing clickbait news like "And you won't believe what happened next …" . Every contribution, large or small, is valuable.
