Nintendo has announced that The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild and Super Mario Odyssey are both going to be playable in virtual reality using the Nintendo VR Labo kit.
The gaming company is set to roll out free VR updates to the two Switch titles on April 25, making them compatible with its VR goggles.
'Breath Of The Wild,' 'Super Mario Odyssey' In VR
In Super Mario Odyssey, fans can expect three new mini-missions made for VR, collecting music notes and coins throughout. These new missions are set in the Cap, Seaside, and Luncheon Kingdoms.
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. Once activated, players can explore Hyrule and experience everything it has to offer in VR, except for the cutscenes, however.
Now, going by Nintendo's teaser, it's hard to tell how they're going to be played exactly. Playing in VR is arguably more tiring than traditional means and add to that the fact the VR goggles don't have a head strap, making it difficult to play for hours on end on it.
Labo VR Kit Becomes A Bit More Compelling
Labo is going to be available on April 12 with a $39.99 price tag for the base package. Moreover, there's a $79.99 Toy-Con 04 option that comes with a ton of other kits.
The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild and Super Mario Odyssey are fan-favorite Switch games. Both have sold more than 10 million copies each, with the former at 11.68 million and the latter at 13.76 million.
At that, it's safe to say that the new VR updates for these games will attract more users to the Labo VR kit.
