Last month, we reported on how the Nintendo Switch was getting a Nintendo Labo VR kit with six different Toy-Cons. Now, Nintendo have announced that both Super Mario Odyssey and The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild will both have Labo VR support, too.
Both games will be getting completely free updates that will make them compatible with the Labo VR Kit.
A tweet from Nintendo of America showcases some of the new VR aspects of the games.

Super Mario Odyssey will be getting a ‘bite-sized bonus’ experience, with three new mini-missions set in the Cap, Seaside, and Luncheon Kingdoms. All three of these new missions will have VR support, while the rest of the game will remain the same.
Breath of the Wild, on the other hand, will have VR enabled for the entire game, save for pre-rendered cutscenes, which will remain 2D. There’s no need to start a new save file, either. You can just toggle the VR option on in-game and set off on a 3D adventure!
Nintendo’s site states that a software update will be required to enable Nintendo VR. You’ll also have to purchase the Nintendo Labo VR Kit. You can get the main VR Kit, which retails at $79.99 and includes six different VR Toy-Con creations, or a cheaper version, such as the starter set which includes only the VR goggles and VR blaster for just $39.99.
The Nintendo Labo VR kit is due out on April 12th. The VR updates for Super Mario Odyssey and The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild are out on April 25th.
