Labo takes second

Nintendo Labo wasn't strong enough to beat out Earth Defense Force for the top spot, but there's nothing wrong with second place!

That is a terrible debut total for Labo Toy-Con 04: VR Kit. It continues to be a relative flop. And Nintendo tried to tie their big guns to it, it obviously didn't help.

If it came second place, it's not a flop.

Furthermore, it's just cardboard accessory so it wasn't even that expensive to mass produce either.

Yoshi is doing fine I see.

That's not how it works either lol.

It's all relative.

Labo 4 did better than Labo 3 first week, and about the same as 2's first week. We'll see whether it has legs unlike the others. 1 did decently in JP (200K). Labo 4 seems to have a good word of mouth and it's cheaper so we'll see about sales legs.

If that is the case, the. It's sales shouldn't be a big deal as you say it should as Nintendo didn't expect this to do well.
