Nintendo Use Labo to Support VR in 'Super Mario Odyssey', 'Zelda: Breath of the Wild'

Nintendo announced on Twitter virtual reality (VR) support will come to two of the Switch's most popular first party titles in Super Mario Odyssey and The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild thanks to the upcoming release of Nintendo Labo Toy-Con 04: VR.

Super Mario Odyssey will add VR-exclusive missions in the game, while all of Breath of the Wild will be entirely playable in the format. Nintendo of America's Doug Bowser spoke about the new experiences in what VR adds to the games.

"This new kit builds on the core tenets of Nintendo Labo – Make, Play and Discover – to introduce virtual reality in a way that's fun and approachable for both kids and kids at heart. We wanted to design an experience that encourages both virtual and real-world interactions among players through passing around Toy-Con creations."

There will be no additional cost to use VR on both titles. The Nintendo Labo VR Kit will be available April 25t and retails for $79.99, which includes the software and materials to fulfill all six cardboard-related Toy-Con projects.
