Labovr

Japanese chart figures are now in for 8th - 14th April, revealing that Nintendo Labo VR has managed to enter the charts in second place in its opening week.

The game managed to sell more units that this week's other big Switch release, Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD Remaster, with Famitsu's estimates reporting a total of 26,634 sales. This debut puts it ahead of Nintendo Labo: Vehicle Kit's opening week sales, but still significantly behind the sales experienced by the first two Labo kits.

It was Earth Defense Force: Iron Rain which managed to take the top spot, though, with an estimated 55,573 sales. Labo VR released a day later than both Earth Defense Force and Final Fantasy, potentially causing the VR kit's sales to look a little weaker than they might have done.
