Nintendo Announces Free VR Updates To Their Two Top Selling Switch Titles

Super Mario Odyssey: Experience small areas of the Cap, Seaside and Luncheon Kingdoms in a whole new way with the Toy-Con VR Goggles.

Breath of the Wild will see a more significant update as it looks like the entire game will be playable with the Labo VR unit.

Nintendo is getting ready to drop their fourth Nintendo Labo DIY Kit soon, with the Labo VR Kit scheduled to release next week. It appears that "Breath of the Wild", however, will be fully playable in virtual reality, with Nintendo pledging that it works with your established game save. In Mario Odyssey, the players will be able to play three mini missions.

The inventive Toy-Con Garage mode - included as part of all Nintendo Labosoftware - returns with Nintendo Labo Toy-Con 04: VR Kit, offering basic programming tools for players to experiment with. "Introducing the most immersive, robust Nintendo Labo kit to date-this one combines DIY fun, pass-and-play multiplayer, and family-friendly play with simple, shareable VR gaming". You do not need to start a new save file to play Zelda in VR, either. Are you hyped to explore these worlds in VR?

The decision to rework two huge franchises for Labo VR is a fairly big statement of intent from Nintendo, and perhaps indicates the company has even bigger plans where virtual reality is concerned. The kit also comes with a "programming tool" that can be used to create VR games. For $80, you get the VR Goggles, Wind Pedal, Camera, Elephant, Bird, and Blaster. There will be two packages available at launch: the full VR Kit, which will retail for $79.99, and a stripped-back Starter Set, which will cost $39.99.
