Rengo - Nintendo Labo

The release of Nintendo Labo for Switch is right around the corner now, with Toy-Con 01 - Variety Kit and Toy-Con 02 - Robot Kit becoming available on 20th April in the US and Japan, and later on the 27th in Europe.

Now you might be wondering how Nintendo is going to manage producing all of these cardboard kits on its own. This would be a huge feat considering that it is almost a worldwide launch and we're imagining that supply will be plentiful.

It turns out that Japanese packaging firm Rengo will be doing the honours of producing the kits for Nintendo; however, representatives from the company are being tight-lipped about details of the manufacturing for business reasons. Still, at least now we have confirmation which company is actually making the cardboard kits.

Rengo is one of the first companies within Japan to produce corrugated cardboard, and in terms of sales it is the third-largest maker of containers and packaging products in Japan. Rengo has a market value of about 250 billion yen ($2.3 billion), so it is quite the 'mover and shaker' in the world of cardboard and packaging.
