Super Smash Bros. Ultimate to Have a VR Mode
The Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Version 3.1.0 will be going live today and the new update will have an added support for the Labo Toy-Con VR Goggles.
With the new ‘VR Mode’ in the game, players will be able to take on and beat up their friends on a new perspective altogether on the action that can be experienced with the Labo VR Kit. The Switch fighting game will be giving players access to a virtual mode via the Nintendo Labo Toy-Con VR Goggles. It is not the most immersive and high resolution of VR hardware but it is still OK for simple games. The updated version will also enable players to send their amiibo fighters on training missions.
According to a Twitter bot for SSBU patch notes, the new 3.1.0 updated version will be dropping today and will also include the virtual reality mode. The Twitter bot has quite an impeccable track record of accurately divulging these details 12 hours ahead of Nintendo’s official pronouncements. The kind of VR options that will be available to players are still not clear.
Now you can send your amiibo off on journeys to train via the Games & More > amiibo menu!
Send your battle-hardened FPs out into the wide world to spar with other FPs!
