What hype are you even talking about?
"When a black moon shines, Light and Dark break apart, the King of Darkness howls"
Yeah, that’s not what i remember. People were laughing at it. Few people cared or defended it.
Pretty much what I remember too. Low expectations but some people thought maybe building it would be fun with kids.
It's just Another Day in Another World.
Y'all need to learn the definition of overhyped. Most people didn't care for Labo and some wanted it to fail. Just because 10 people really wanted this to win, doesn't mean that it's overhyped. Especially when 90% of Nintendo's fanbase don't care and like 9% actively wanted it to fail.

You're the one with the double standards.
A few people defending it = OVERHYPED!!!1!!1
I appreciated what Labo was trying to be. It was intended to be a means of introducing a younger generation to the concepts of engineering and programming. Labo got a real negative knee-jerk reaction by people that didn't understand what it actually was.
I agree. The problem with Nintendo is that they're marketing it as something at home for the kids. Parents that do buy it, will end up making it and their kid plays with it for like an hour at the most and it's gone. People that buy it will be excited when they see Ariana Grande singing with a band, but constructing it is a different monster.
I think they should pitch it to schools, libraries, youth programs, and camps. For the piano (music), constructing (think woodshop class), and the garage (coding and programming classes/after school programs/camps). The only hurdle they'll have to hop over then is justifying the price. Though schools buy Apple, so just market it as a premium system. Sell it cheaper if they buy in bulk. That's the best chance this has at succeeding.
Gamefaqs were quite negative when this was announced however other gaming boards were hyping this to death, saying it's the next Nintendogs and it'll fly off the shelves.
Although it's a bit early but it seems to have underperformed. Maybe it'll pick up during the holidays.
Lolabo. Even the weebs couldn't defend it. $80 shovelware with a side of cardboard, gtfo with that s***.
It's only the beta!

Ya one labo kit for 75 kids in a summer camp is a great idea....it would be broken in five minutes and someone would cry when then didn't get a turn. It's a s*** product.

It's hard to get excited over cardboard. The thing just completely fell off the map a week after its release.
Currently playing: Loot Boxes, Microtransactions, Day 1 DLC, $50 Season Passes
I remember when it was announced, everyone was like "OMG It's such genius! Nintendo is so innovative!" And "Who knew they would be selling us cardboard??!!" And all those memes emerged.
Other than die hard Nintendo fan boys I don't remember this reaction.
Most of the reactions I saw were...
This is stupid.
This isn't for me.
I hope this fails.
And various memes and fan art about how funny Labo was conceptually.
But not a whole lot of people actually thinking it was a legitimate great idea or excited about buying one.
YOU COULDN'T AFFORD IT!
