Play us a tune

Labo launched last week in North America, and you may well have noticed plenty of coverage going up on a wide range of sites since then. The consensus is pretty clear: Labo is a neat toy that has plenty of potential.

So then, you may be wondering to yourselves, where's the all-important Nintendo Life review? Otherwise known as "the only review worth reading"? Unfortunately, because we're based in the UK, we won't be getting our hands on Labo proper until this Friday. While North America and Japan got Labo on the 20th April, the European launch is the 27th, presumably because cardboard is really difficult to manufacture in large quantities, or something.

"Ah!" some of you may be thinking right now. "But I've noticed that several UK-based games writers already have their review kits - what gives, Nintendo Life? Huh? Huh?" You are of course correct, some UK-based outlets do have kits and are putting content live this week. However, we're not one of them - which means you'll have to wait a few more days before we deliver our verdict on Nintendo's new cardboard plaything. We'll also be reviewing the Variety Kit and Robot Kit separately to give you the most in-depth analysis out there.

If you're in the US and have been tinkering away with Labo, let us know what you think by posting a comment below.
