Get very close to the action with Labo.
Yesterday we reported that the latest update to Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, 3.1.0, seemed to have some interesting code that hinted at a possible VR mode being added to the game. Well, the update is live now, and it’s official- the game now has a dedicated VR mode now that lets you get closer than ever to the action on-screen.
Along with the update, Nintendo released a trailer to show off the new mode. It is single player only, so you can’t go online in VR mode or play with friends. You can watch a bout between CPUs across “dozens” of the many maps, or jump in and play against the computer. You can see from the trailer there’s a lot of tilting movement you can do as you rotate around the levels to get a much different view than typical with the franchise. Of course, you will need a Labo VR Kit to use this mode.
Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is available now for Nintendo Switch. The 3.1.0 update is live now.
