This week we got a bunch of new surprise announcements, from a huge Nintendo surprise to all sorts of Dragonball related stuff, let’s check it out in our weekly round-up for the week commencing 1/15/18.
The fact that Nintendo wasn’t actually BS-ing us with the whole “HD rumble” thing and that the Joycons are actually sensitive enough for you to play a tiny cardboard piano is a pretty awesome thing all by itself.
Labo is clearly targeted at kids, which explains why Friday after this announcement, Nintendo’s stock jumped more than 4% on the Tokyo Stock Exchange, because this appeals to the kid inside all of us.
Now let’s talk prices:
The Variety Kit (pictured above) comes with everything you need to build a motorbike, a house, a fishing rod, two remote controlled cars, one piano, and The Variety Kit software is priced at $69.99.
The Robot Kit (pictured above) that comes with everything you need to build that awesome robot suit and The Robot Kit software is priced at $79.99.
Nintendo is also selling the customization set (pictured above) that comes with two stencil sheets, two sticker sheets, and two tape rolls for $9.99.
That’s right kids, if you want to have the complete Nintendo Labo experience you have to spend $160 of your hard earned money.
Expecting us to pay such exorbitant amount of money for cardboard that is going to break as soon as you try to put together any of these “gadgets” is outrageous! The worst part about this is that these two (basically) tech demos don’t even come together.
Nintendo Labo releases on 4/20 later this year. Which begs the question: How high does Nintendo expects us to be when we buy any of this?
Final Fantasy XV: Royal Edition
Final Fantasy XV is one of the best games of 2017 and this Royal Edition looks to make it even better with all the season pass content, a new dungeon, new bosses, new gear and a new first-person mode.
If you did not get around to getting Final Fantasy XV last year, you should really think about getting the Royal Edition when it releases on March 6 later this year.
