Last month, Nintendo unveiled their first step into the realm of virtual reality. Next week, they’ll be launching a Nintendo Labo VR Kit that includes a selection of games and mini-games, as well as multiple expansions that each come with their own accessories. We had also heard rumors that some first-party Nintendo titles would receive VR support, and that just turned out to be true as well. In fact, two of Nintendo’s biggest hits on Switch are getting free VR updates soon.
Nintendo announced today that Super Mario Odyssey and Breath of the Wild are both getting Labo VR support on April 25th. Odyssey is receiving a new “bite-sized bonus experience” that includes three new collectathon missions spread out across the Cap, Seaside, and Luncheon Kingdoms. Breath of the Wild, on the other hand, seemingly lets you play the whole game in VR Goggles Mode, though pre-rendered cutscenes aren’t compatible. This mode can be toggled on and off at any time.
