Mario and Zelda to receive VR support later this month including new content.
Super Mario Odyssey and The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild are receiving Labo VR support, Nintendo announced recently in a video. Using the Toy-Con VR Goggles you can play bonus levels of Super Mario Odyssey. In these missions, you collect music notes and coins to complete certain objectives. Additionally, you can visit the Cap, Seaside and Luncheon Kingdoms in this mode.
In The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, you are able to play the full game using the VR Goggles, however, it is not in a first-person perspective. You can just play the game in completion while wearing the goggles. The video states that you do not need to create a new save file to use the VR mode. To switch into the VR mode you just need to turn on the option via the game’s menu.
