Three years ago, Nintendo launches Nintendo LABO, a toys-to-life concept where players could build cardboard “toy-cons” that could then be used to play various games.
Although it was fairly well-received when it first launched, Nintendo has made little to no significant news or announcements for LABO in recent months. Now, as pointed out by Twitter user @Akfamilyhome, Nintendo appears to have taken down the North American website for the LABO kits, the link instead redirecting to the LABO VR Kit store page.
The official North American site for Nintendo Labo at https://t.co/raHOjTVED5 has been taken down and now redirects to the regular store page for the VR Kit.
Think it's safe to say that we're not seeing more Labo in the future 🙁

Although not a surefire confirmation that LABO has been discontinued, it does suggest that Nintendo is only interested in promoting the Toy-Con VR Kit, which appears to be the only LABO product with uses outside of its original concept. We will be sure to report back with more details should they become available.
