Nintendo Labo: the internet reacts
Play your card right.
Nintendo surprised the world last night with its announcement of Nintendo Labo, a DIY cardboard accessory range for Nintendo Switch. So, of course, the world promptly took to Twitter to record its hot takes and jokes.
For a more high-brow read, Martin just wrote about how Nintendo Labo is actually an ingenious nod back to Nintendo's past.

As is often the case with Nintendo, their most innovative ideas also reach back into their past. They were producing foldable cardboard toys over 40 years ago! https://t.co/bFfkpd9YRU pic.twitter.com/m35mOy8JQx— Ashley Day (@jellyscare) January 17, 2018
