The hate for Labo still gives me a chuckle. We know it has missed retailers expectations, we knew that before this thread. We've just had the Mario Kart update and it looks like compatibility will come with other games too. Add to that the news about it being used at a school in London and it's easy to see what they are trying to do with Labo.

I don't know why we keep bothering with this discussion, some people are not going to accept Labo is doing poorly until it bombs out at the holidays.

St. Patrick's Day will save it. If a toy is really resonating with kids, it sells strong all year long not just at Christmas either.

That is if it bombs at holiday. We're not ruling out it's possibility for failure, we're simply saying that we should stop looking at its sales like a traditional game.

Actually this was a mobile question. Kimishima is more focused on the 200+ million downloads for Mario Run than the actual revenue it nets them, because they want more mindshare.
That was one of Iwata’s goals with mobile, iirc, so it’s nice that’s still in place.
Do wonder how much it helped, Mario Odyssey did sell a ton

You could have a pretty decent lineup with some fun multiplayer games.

Super Mario 64
Ocarina of Time
Majora's Mask
Mario Kart 64
Paper Mario
Mario Party (2)
Mario Tennis/Golf
Star Fox 64
F-Zero X
Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards
Super Smash Bros.
Donkey Kong 64 (has been VC)
Pokemon Snap
Wave Race 64
1080 Snowboarding
Pilotwings 64

16 seems like a reasonable number with 20 on SNES Classic. And this is assuming no Rare games other than DK64.
What I mean is, the N64 was known for Mario, Zelda, and Goldeneye. And maybe the WWE games to a lesser degree. It was a very US heavy console, and I don't think a lot of the games we hold a lot of nostalgia for will have the same kind of pull as the NES Classic's lineup. SNES classic's lineup was a lot more limited but I think it hit the right notes and came at the right time with the right price tag. N64 Classic definitely runs the risk of being seen as the inferior Classic release unless they put some major TLC into each game and don't make it into a classy RetroPIE with shell.

Now the Wii Classic has potential to run circles around the aforementioned Classics, although it'd definitely command a higher price tag.

This is all IMO of course.

Only really able to follow along so far with twitter's translation of NStyles tweets, but interesting so far. Not sure what they were asking about Kirby CDs though?

It's funny how the same 4 guys are obsessed with the idea of Labo flopping and keep calling for a Switch price drop no matter what the topic of discussion is.

Q15 Building clean. The lawn is well maintained. I think employees can work comfortably.
They keep their corporate value high. In regards to Mario, he lost his trial to a company that undermined the image with a real cart. Why did you lose?
I don't know what the actual question is but these translations are getting a laugh out of me.

It’s funny how I’m here to see reactions to all the questions and statistics being brought up in the meeting and they’re mucking up 4 pages of the thread with this stupid bullshit. Maybe they could go run off to the Labo OT.
