Wouldn't be bad if Labo can maintain 10k/week but as said before I think it's gonna keep dropping. Time will tell!

It's starting to see some heavy discounting, so not sure how large the additional shipments will be. As long as it has good word of mouth, steady sales should be good enough.

The boxes take a lot more inventory space than a normal game in it's small case, so I was expecting that a bit. Especially after the retailers seemingly expected a bit too much right out of the gate and ordered too many copies.

Hopefully it will sell a lot in the next couple of weeks

I think if Nintendo continues to support by releasing more packs + ways they can interact together, then it'll give it solid boosts.

In my opinion I think it needs to get Viral. And that could be from any source in the world. We are seeing with Ariana Grande that singers can perform their song with using Labo. 

 

Or it could be just allowing the Switch userbase to increase more from games like Pokemon, Smash, Animal Crossing and Monster Hunter.

They should make a Labo Minecraft edition.

They should provide replayability by having a Tamagatchi system with the Labo house creature and a rhythm/practice game with the piano. Boggles my mind how they didn't think to give the Labo games themselves hardly any replayability.
