Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Now Works With Labo VR

Super Smash Bros. Update 3.1.0 adds a new dimension.

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate update 3.1.0 is out now and it brings with it a new VR update. This update makes Super Smash Bros. Ultimate compatible with Nintendo Labo's VR Toy-Con.

The VR update makes it so that players who use the VR Toy-Con will feel like they have a front-row seat to the action. Players can watch CPU Vs. matches as computer-controlled characters fight it out in dozens of VR compatible stages. Here is a trailer showcasing what the VR update will look like.

As you can see, the VR update for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate simulates the front-row seating of a sporting event. Players can also fight CPUs while in VR mode, though considering you need to manually hold the VR goggles and Switch to your face, I can't imagine it's the most comfortable way to play Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.

There's also a new set of fighter adjustments in 3.1.0. While the full list of individual fighter changes can be found here, all fighters have been given a small adjustment to wall jumping. Now, you'll need to wait longer after a wall jump in order to wall jump again in the same direction.

The Super Smash Bros. Ultimate VR update is the third VR update to a released Nintendo Switch game. The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild and Super Mario Odyssey both received VR updates for Labo Toy-Con, and we expect more VR updates for other games in the future as well.
