Though it wasn’t the form many were expecting, Nintendo Switch VR is finally on its way later this month with the launch of the latest Nintendo Labo kit.

Recently announced by Nintendo, the latest entries in the Super Mario and Legend of Zelda series’ are now hopping into virtual reality through official support for the Nintendo Labo Toy-Con 04: VR kit.

Nintendo has surely come a long way since the Virtual Boy all those years ago. While the Labo isn’t the most advanced piece of equipment, it does at least look like a fun time, especially if it means more VR support could be coming in the future. We definitely wouldn’t mind games like ARMS, Splatoon 2, or even DOOM rocking Nintendo Switch VR sometime down the line.
Nintendo Labo Toy-Con 04: VR is set to release on April 12th, while The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild and Super Mario Odyssey are out now for Nintendo Switch.
