Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Precursor to Labo?

Hey, I know we have a big thread for Labo discussion already, but this is something I felt deserved a thread of it's own.

Apparently Nintendo once did handicraft toys long before Labo was even conceptualized.

Am I the only one who didn't know about these?



Around the Network

I heard about it recently from the Random Nintendo podcast. And one of the guys makes a good point, Nintendo is one to utilize old ideas and utilize them into new ones. They don’t let old ideas go to waste.



Wow thats pretty neat and definitely fits in with Nintendo's history of reusing and modernizing ideas of their past.



When the herd loses its way, the shepard must kill the bull that leads them astray.

They don't look half bad lol



 

 

Yeah as mentioned Nintendo recycles old ideas repackage them and it sometimes pays off. I don't think that's a bad thing really if they learned some lessons and know that before they were early but now have the ability to do it properly. SEGA often brought new ideas to the table but never went back to explore them (then again big part of that is they stopped making consoles but their ideas were reborn on other systems)

When I first heard about Labo, one of my initial thoughts was that Gunpei Yokoi would approve. This would have been right up his alley.



Didn't know about this but then again, they did venture into a lot of things before settling with video games so it does make sense

Doesn't really surprise me. 



Damn, Nintendo even invented cutting and folding cardboard. What the fuck didn't they do?

Donkey Kong Hockey was real? I thought it was just a joke I heard on YouTube. XD
