and apparently didnt sell well...
The know says it "flopped" and it was a "failure", selling less than 30% of its shipments in japan.
(they shipped 90k vararity kit + 29k robo kit)
Thats like a total of 119k units shipped in japan, and less than 30% means less than 35,700 units sold of it there.
Also claim that the Labo software didnt move any switch units, switch sales where lower that week than prior/expected.
The data here is incorrect. Those "shipped" numbers are actual sold numbers (according to Media Create). The shipped numbers are around 300k for the variety kit and around 100k for the robot kit according to the available sell-through data.
That said, I unfortunately saw this coming. When Nintendo didn't even have the house monster thing have more depth than a Tomogatchi I knew that they were focusing more on the building process instead of the games. Such a disappointment. That said the Garage seems quite cool. But they really needed to put more effort into their games to make the price worth it.
