De­vel­oper/ pub­lisher Nin­tendo ( EPD) For­mat Switch Ori­gin Ja­pan Re­lease April 27

Nin­tendo is tar­get­ing the main­stream with this won­drously cre­ative new ini­tia­tive, but this is es­sen­tial stuff for any­one with an in­ter­est in the fu­ture of in­ter­ac­tive en­ter­tain­ment. Jar­ring as it may seem to her­ald some­thing made from such hum­ble ma­te­ri­als as the fu­ture, Labo seems like a sure-fire suc­cess – it re­flects a Nin­tendo that is again near the peak of its pow­ers, ex­press­ing its con­fi­dence through dar­ing cre­ativ­ity while nudg­ing the medium for­ward. We won­dered how Switch could pos­si­bly top its sublime first year. Here, in a piano, a ro­bot suit and a mo­tor­bike, hewn from card­board and lengths of string, we find our an­swer.
