There are only a few days left until the arrival of the update that will make compatible two of Nintendo Switch’s most beloved titles, Super Mario Odyssey and The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, with Nintendo Labo VR, the toy-with visor for virtual reality of the Great N.
For the occasion, a trailer was released showing the contents that will be available to play with the new mode on both games: Super Mario Odyssey will have three new mini-missions in the Kingdom of the Mushrooms, the Sea and the Stoves, where players will have to collect notes and coins. However, it is not clear from the video whether and what other VR activities will be possible with the Nintendo viewer.
As for The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, players will be able to explore the whole world of Hyrule in VR, enabling or disabling VR controls through a simple entry in the gaming menu. Unfortunately, the cutscenes will be visible only in a “classic” way, and therefore the VR action will be limited to what happens in-game, but there is no need to start a new game in order to enjoy the new viewing mode.
The two patches that will add Nintendo Labo VR support to both games will be available starting April 25th, obviously only on Nintendo Switch.
