The Nintendo Labo certainly made many fans scratch their heads in response to its announcement. The new series of software programs that work with cardboard-based peripherals will definitely make the Switch be used in ways many could not have imagined. However, given the flimsy and easily breakable nature of cardboard, some have expressed fears about the DIY peripherals. In response to this, Nintendo Director Shinya Takahashi has said that the Nintendo Labo durability will be part of the fun with the new peripherals, given the creative nature of the crafted projects.
Nintendo has released the new investor Q&A with Director Shinya Takahashi, in which the topic of Labo because a huge focus. Takahashi heard many of the responses that called Labo a “very Nintendo product,” which he gladly took as a compliment to the company’s creativity. When asked about the inspiration for the new Labo line, Takahashi claims that the popularity of cardboard-based crafts among children was a major influence in the decision to use the material for new peripherals. He also mentioned that cardboard lends itself well as a “trial-and-error” material, making the construction process just as fun as playing with the finished results, saying:
“That led our concept for Nintendo Labo to be developed as something that people could enjoy in all of its aspects, not just in playing with the finished product, but also in making some repairs along the way and after it is complete and in understanding the mechanics.”
Given this thought, the Labo cardboard peripherals will have replacement parts available for those who rough up their original pieces that come with the software.
