If you only watched the first couple of seconds of this week’s Nintendo Labo trailer, you might get the impression that Nintendo is trying to do something with VR. It could remind you of something like Google Cardboard. But as the trailer progresses, you’ll quickly realize that Nintendo is going for something that’s rather different.
Nintendo Labo also isn’t intended to be an answer to VR. That’s according to Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime, who spoke with Toronto Sun about the new initiative.

Nintendo has shattered all sorts of sales records with Switch since the system launched in 2017. Despite being around for less than a year, it has done exceptionally well thus far.
The latest example of this can be seen from a nugget of new information provided by the NPD. Analyst Mat Piscatella says that “on a time-aligned basis through the first 10 months on the market, Nintendo Switch has sold more consoles than any other platform in history.”
Nintendo announced earlier this month that Switch is the fastest-selling home video game system of all time in the US. Nearly five million units have been sold in the country.

During a video broadcast today, Nippon Ichi announced the latest information about the Disgaea series.
First, CEO Sohei Niikawa revealed that a remake of Disagea 1 is in the works. It will be released in Japan this summer. No information or images were shared, but given the success of Disgaea 5 Complete and the company’s commitment to Switch, this one should end up on Nintendo’s console.
Niikawa also teased the next entry in the series, Disgaea 6. However, we have even less information about this one, so we may not be hearing about it anytime soon.
