Nintendo’s official Super Mario Odyssey JP account tweeted out new information tonight regarding the new upcoming VR support. Our very own MysticDistance has translated the following tweets for us.
“[Play in VR!] With the Nintendo Labo VR Kit releasing on 4/25, you can use the included VR Goggles to experience games in a new way.
“You can play through the ‘Cap Kingdom’, ‘Seaside Kingdom’ and ‘Luncheon Kingdom’ In each kingdom, you can gather various instruments by collecting notes scattered across each of the three kingdoms. And by doing so, you can start a live performance by giving the instruments to the performers. You’ll also get a chance to hear the lovely singing by the Lochlady.”
“If you’ve got your performers with you, you’ll be able to watch a live performance at the concert hall in the ‘Metro Kingdom’ Please look forward to it! We hope you enjoy one of many interesting ways to “Play in VR!”
The Nintendo Labo: VR Kit launches exclusively on Nintendo Switch on April 12th, 2019. The free update for Super Mario Odyssey releases on April 25th, 2019.
