Nintendo has announced its newest Labo kit for the Switch: the Nintendo Labo VR Kit, which will give gamers the opportunity to build their own VR headsets.
As part of Nintendo's popular line of DIY cardboard construction kits that have gamers build their own accessories for the Switch, the Labo VR Kit will come with buildable accessories including Toy-Con goggles, camera, bird, wind pedal, elephant and blaster. The goggles will let players immerse themselves in classic Switch games like never before with Nintendo releasing a video showing new VR functionality for Super Mario Odyssey and The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild.
Both titles will receive free software updates at the end of the month to allow VR functionality though Breath of the Wild's VR feature will require a new save file for the enhanced experience.
In addition to offering players the chance to get a deeper look at the games' imaginative settings, Super Mario Odyssey's VR mode will come with three additional mini-missions for players to obtain music notes through the enhanced view.
The Nintendo Labo VR Kit goes on sale on April 12 for $79.99. The VR updates for The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild and Super Mario Odyssey will be available on April 25.
