Super Mario Odyssey and The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild will both be getting free updates that will allow these titles to be played with Nintendo Labo VR.
Announced by Nintendo, these software updates will arrive on April 25, just a couple weeks after the launch of the Nintendo Labo VR Kit on April 12.
Super Mario Odyssey will feature a “bite-sized bonus experience” that will allow players to head back to Cap, Seaside, and Luncheon Kingdoms with Mario and Cappy in three new mini-missions.
The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild will allow players to experience the full title in VR with the flip of a virtual switch in the options menu.
Odyssey and Breath of the Wild will join such other VR games included with the set as Ocean Camera (POKEMON SNAP VR, WHERE ARE YOU?!), House Camera, Marble Run, Doodle, Bird, and Bird Dash.
We have discussed whether or not we believe that Nintendo Labo VR will be worth a purchase, but this was all before we knew of the addition of these two titles. It will be interesting to see if they are worthy of extended play or will simply be a short-lived demo-type experience.
The Nintendo Labo VR Kit will be released on April 12, and you can check out the best way to purchase it so you can play Mario and Zelda in VR with our pre-order guide.
