Could you use your Labo to smash soon?
Super Smash Bros. Ultimate continues its dominance as being one of Nintendo’s highest selling titles. It continues to get updates as well with the newest one, 3.1, scheduled to come out this week. We know that fighter adjustments were planned, but if some part of the code is to believed, another big thing may be coming with it: VR mode.
The SSBUBot on Twitter (a bot that is designed to keep track of updates for the game) pulled code from the 3.1 update and surprisingly got a line of code referencing a VR mode to play with the Nintendo Labo VR kit. You can see the tweet below. While the update hasn’t gone live as of yet, the bot is known to have pulled code early in the past, sometimes up to a full day ahead of time. Whether this means the entire game can be played in VR, or if it will be a specific feature or mode is anyone’s guess.
Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is available now for the Switch. The update should be live soon.

VR mode is now available! A whole new perspective on the Smash action awaits!
You can play VR mode using the Toy-Con VR Goggles (sold separately).
