I cant get my head around this. If it's a sucess it's proof people will buy anything with the Nintendo logo in it.
It comes with software that helps you build it, as well as the software to run the toys/games. The cardboard isn't the game, it's the pack-in peripheral that will likely have really cheap aftermarket replacements. Nintendo has also said on multiple occasions that this isn't for you, it's for kids. As a parent, I couldn't be more excited to try these out with my daughter. I'm even considering buy both versions of the Splatoon 2 Joycons so my daughter can play it with her own Pink Joycons.
Honestly, Labo has been a really interesting experiment with the Nintendo fan base. It's fractured off a group of gamers who only care about normal Nintendo games, while children, parents, artistic types, engineering types, and total diehards are excited.
