Mario and Zelda games to get Nintendo Labo VR support

5 April 2019 – by Jack Dawson Taylor

Super Mario Odyssey and The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild are both receiving free VR-supporting updates later this month.

Ahead of the release of the Nintendo Labo VR Kit on 12 April, Nintendo has revealed that the kit's VR Goggles will be supported in two of Nintendo Switch's best-selling games following free software updates coming later this month.

Super Mario Odyssey will be updated to include three brand new mini-missions set in the Cap Kingdom, the Seaside Kingdom, and the Luncheon Kingdom, all playable exclusively with the VR Goggles.

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild will be updated to support VR Goggles during main gameplay, meaning the entire game will be playable by enabling VR mode in the options, without the need to start a new save file.

Both software updates will be released on 26 April worldwide.
