Peter Wray, Video Games Buyer at Argos, has shared his insights regarding how well Nintendo products have fared historically with the retailer, its availability at Argos, and what the new innovations could mean for the gaming retail market. You can read his comments below:

“Over the years Nintendo has succeeded in creating some truly game-changing products and Labo is no exception. Argos will be prepared to meet the demand as we’ve done in the past with Nintendo’s other highly anticipated launches including the SNES Mini, Wii and more recently, the Switch. Nintendo’s pioneering technology has always been hugely popular with our customers, from the first motion-controlled gaming experience with the Wii to the first crossover home and portable console with the Switch.

“Labo provides a new experience and takes gaming off the screen and into our living rooms in a range of imaginative ways. It will be really interesting to see how this shakes things up for Nintendo’s competitors.”

You can grab Labo gear from the Argos website; the Nintendo Labo Toy-Con 01: Variety Kit for £60, the Nintendo Labo Toy-Con 02: Robot Kit for £70, or the Nintendo Labo Customisation Set for £10.
