If you were among those people, perhaps today's price info will sway you to make a purchase. Some customers have found the Robot Kit in stock at their local Walmart for just $9.

Nintendo Labo VR Kit the best-selling VR-required title in the U.S. for 2019

Well that's encouraging

NPD's Mat Piscatella has shared some interesting information on the VR front here in the United States. According to his data, the Nintendo Labo VR Kit is the best-selling VR-required experience of 2019 so far. While that's great news for Nintendo, we have more data to put things into perspective.
