They really shouldn't have focused so much on vr or at least mentioned beforehand that the the main focus would be vr. It would be like if Nintendo announced a direct and and didn't mention it was going to be focused on Indies beforehand, people would be pissed.
Nintendo should had told people that they showed a Labo on Nintendo Direct last year.
Do you have a link for this? I don't remember this happening. If true then yeah I agree they should have mentioned that labo would be a big focus.
