Back in December, we learned that Nintendo had filed several patents in relation to Nintendo Switch. The most interesting of these was the potential to attach the Switch to a HMD (head-mounted display), suggesting it could be compatible with a VR device. It seems that we may indeed see VR on the Switch sometime in the future following a recent comment made by Nintendo President Tatsumi Kimishima. Kimishima told the Nikkei 225 (Japan’s stock market index) that the company currently “studies” VR and will add it to the console once they find a way for players to use it for hours without any issues. Industry consultant Dr. Serkan Toto reported the news on Twitter, which you can view above.
