NPD analyst says Nintendo Labo debut sales were "solid, not fantastic, but not terrible," looks to the months ahead as the real test

Nintendo Labo came in at #4 overall for April 2018 sales in the United States. NPD doesn't provide sales numbers along with their charts, but NPD analyst Mat Piscatella did give a little more insight into Labo's debut.

I think the April sales set a solid foundation, and I don’t think anything in the April data suggests anything more than that. The market jury is certainly still out. It continues to be something very difficult to analyze and predict, certainly.”

I would love to know what Shaq really thinks about this game. He seems like a laid-back and fun guy, but I doubt he'd utter a bad word about the upcoming sequel. I mean, let's hope it turns out to be dumb fun, and not just dumb. Fingers crossed!
