Mario and Zelda will soon be playable in VR, thanks to the new Nintendo Labo VR Toy-Con.
Both Super Mario Odyssey and Breath of the Wild will be getting updates that implement Nintendo Labo VR support, letting you experience these games like never before. In Super Mario Odyssey, you’ll be able to revisit three kingdoms (the Cap, Seaside, and Luncheon worlds) for challenges that have been built from the ground up for Nintendo Labo VR.
Let’s be honest though, the first thing we’re going to do is head straight to the Seaside Kingdom and pretend we’re having a weekend vacay. Don’t pretend you’re not going to either.
However, in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, the full game will support VR. All you need to do is go into the options, toggle the mode on, and put the switch in your Labo VR toy-con. After that, you’re ready to experience Hyrule in virtual reality. From tackling those tricky shrines from a new perspective to trotting across the vast plains of this huge world with Epona, there are plenty of reasons to revisit this instant classic in VR.
These software updates will be available for free on 26 April, and with the Nintendo Labo VR Toy-Con is due to launch later this month 12 April, the wait to see what these worlds are like in VR isn’t going to be a long one.
