Nintendo Labo had a fairly successful launch, with the Variety Kit largely outselling the Robot Kit. Even if the numbers aren’t exactly at the same level of a big Nintendo exclusive, they’re above 100,000 if you sum both models.

Interestingly, despite the launch of Labo and a few other Switch games, sales of the console actually dropped slightly since last week, probably indicating that the console has hit its stride.

God of War also did pretty well for a western game, even if it did not manage to equalize the initial success of Far Cry 5 three weeks ago. This is interesting, as it appears to support the idea that first-person shooters and open-world games tend to do better in Japan among foreign games.

Another interesting element is that the adventure of Kratos pushed the PS4 Pro to sell better than the base model, which is a quite rare occurrence.

Nintendo Labo is available now for Nintendo Switch. If you haven’t purchased it yet, can pick up either the Variety Kit or Robot Kit from Amazon.

If you’re more interested in God of War, you can also grab a copy on Amazon.
