Nintendo announces VR support for two of its biggest properties.
In a video released yesterday via the official Nintendo Twitter account, the company announced that support for Nintendo Labo VR would be heading to both Super Mario Odyssey and Zelda: Breath of the Wild in the form of a free update April 25th, just two weeks after the launch of the Nintendo Labo VR Toy-Con.
The Super Mario Odyssey update will include three additional mini-missions in which players will hunt down and collect a series of music notes and coins to complete various objectives scattered throughout the Cap, Luncheon, and Seaside Kingdoms.

Zelda: Breath of the Wild, on the other hand, will receive VR support for the entire campaign, allowing players to immerse themselves in the beautiful Hyrule landscape like never before. Following the release of the update, players will be able to navigate to their options menu and activate Toy-Con VR Goggles mode, bringing Link’s latest adventure to life in full, stereoscopic glory.
Both VR experiences will be accessible via the Toy-Con VR Goggles, which players will hold up to their face using the attached Joy-Con controllers.
Nintendo Labo VR Starter Kit drops April 12th for $39.99 and includes everything you’ll need to get started playing Mario Odyssey and Breath of the Wild in VR. For even more immersive action, you’ll want to check out the full Nintendo Labo VR Kit to gain access to all the cardboard peripherals.
