Nintendo isn't stopping there, adding VR support to two of the console's biggest titles, Mario Odyssey and The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild next week. But how does it work exactly?

In it, the game's technical director, Takuhiro Dohta, discusses how accessing the mode will be as easy as entering the in-game options and turning it on.

Now that the Nintendo Labo VR Kit is out in the wild, fans are going insane thinking about what other games could get the Labo VR treatment. During play, open the menu screen, select System, and select Options. "In the end, The Legend of Zelda development team reached the conclusion that, rather than change the game, we should let you play it as it is, and instead just make it so that you can use the VR Goggles to see whatever parts you want".

The controls and overall game content are the same as normal, but you'll be able to get a new perspective on Hyrule. I can't imagine that playing the entirety of Breath of the Wild in VR mode is an ideal situation, and it's a bit hard to imagine how the resolution and frame rate of the game will translate into virtual reality. Dohta recommends trying the VR mode "when there's something interesting to see, like a location with a great view, a favorite character, or a favorite piece of equipment".

The idea spawned from Dohta seeing the VR Goggles demonstrated for the first time, and the decision was made to allow players to enjoy the game as it now is, adding VR support only to augment the experience so those interested in participating could "see whatever parts" they want. Those aren't dropping 'til the 25th, but we don't have to wait for info about it all, as a new interview has gone up explaining what's in store for The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild.

VR Kit is now available, allowing Switch users to delve into the world of virtual reality (VR) by creating all sorts of cardboard machinations.

For anyone who finds the motion control camera too intense, there'll be an option to turn off the gyro function completely within the options menu, while still being able to enjoy the stereoscopic vision. The motion-controlled camera may be turned off at any point by adjusting the Aim with motion controls setting.
