For those of you with Labo VR Kits and the included Labo Toy-Con VR Goggles, you now have the power to experience Super Smash Bros. Ultimate from a unique point of view thanks to the 3.1.0 update.
The new VR mode allows players the option of moving their perspective about the stage, taking in all the details that the developers included, and, thanks to the shifting camera angles, you can truly get into the thick of the action for a unique look at combat in Ultimate.
While the new option is cool, there are limitations. Battles can only support four players in the mode, and just 50 of the stages are available at the moment. Because of the camera movement and the problems it poses for playing the game, Nintendo goes so far as to recommend that you stick to watching CPUs duke it out. Also, pay attention to your health and well being — especially if you are new to VR or know you are susceptible to motion sickness — as some animations and stages (like Big Blue) are more likely to cause VR motion sickness than others.
On top of the VR mode, new amiibo features have been introduced. Now you can send your Figure Player (FP) amiibos out into the world to train, fight other FPs, and then watch as they compete in Battle Arenas! But, try not to let them win too often.
