Mario Odyssey, Breath of the Wild Will Support Labo VR

Tuesday, 09 Apr, 2019

On that end, Nintendo has announced that the VR Kit will be compatible with the most recent installments of its two biggest franchises: Super Mario Odyssey and The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild.

The games will be receiving a free update that will allow you to use them with the upcoming Nintendo Labo VR Kit.

In Super Mario Odyssey, fans can expect three new mini-missions made for VR, collecting music notes and coins throughout.

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.

Meanwhile, the VR update for The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild will add a new Toy-Con VR Goggles option in the menu. Gamers can buy Labo VR kits and assemble their own headsets and weird, wacky peripherals like a bird, an elephant trunk, and even a gun to interact with special VR games.

Nintendo also invites players to experience Breath of the Wild like never before in VR. Players can easily turn Toy-Con VR Googles support in game and they will not be required to create a new save file to jump into Hyrule in virtual reality.

Nintendo released its Labo line of products last spring, and the cardboard kits are meant to provide interactive build-and-play experiences.

The Labo VR Kits will be available April 12th. While the former will only have pre-defined sections that can be played in VR, Zelda will playable in its entirety. It comes complete with six new Toy-Con creations, each of which connects with the new Toy-Con VR Goggles. The suggested retail price for the full VR kit is US$79.99 and the starter kit + blaster set is US$39.99.

The Nintendo VR Starter Kit is now available for Pre-Order for $39.99 at Amazon, Best Buy and GameStop with an April 12th release date.
