Three new missions take place within the game's Cap, Seaside and Luncheon Kingdoms. Frankly, the thought of exploring Hyrule all over again in VR sounds like a fantastic reason to revisit Breath of the Wild. Everything from attacking bokoblins to cooking armfuls of bananas will be popping out of the screen and into your eyeballs in 3D.
The new VR modes won't quite provide the effect of inhabiting the bodies of Mario and Link, as neither game's VR mode turns the perspective into first-person. The Nintendo Labo VR kit will be available on April 12 for the Nintendo Switch.
Breath of the Wild's mode features a toggle that lets players experience the game in virtual reality.
Mario Odyssey, Breath of the Wild Will Support Labo VR
Nintendo Labo unites cardboard kits with Nintendo Switch peripherals like the Joy-Con controllers that come bundled with the console to create novelty DIY projects. "We wanted to design an experience that encourages both virtual and real-world interactions among players through passing around Toy-Con creations".
Both titles will only need to use the "VR Goggles" part of the Nintendo Labo: VR Kit.
Nintendo Labo Toy-Con 04: VR Kit - Expansion Set 2: Available at a suggested retail price of $19.99, Expansion Set 2 includes the Toy-Con Wind Pedal and Toy-Con Bird. This is also a great way for the hardcore Nintendo gamer to go out and buy the kit, not just the li'l kiddies. If you are interested in picking up a Labo to experience these newly announced patches, Labo VR is planned for a release in late April - with a release date to be released soon.
