Labo VR Support Added to Super Smash Bros. Ultimate — But It's Limited

Smash Bros. Ultimate does, indeed, have VR, added with its latest update. Here's how it works and what stages are compatible with it.

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate version 3.1.0 is out in the wild now and confirms earlier rumors about VR implementation.

Yes, Smash Ultimate has VR now. The rumored new Amiibo mode has been added, too, but Nintendo didn't release much information about it.

Like Breath of the Wild and Super Mario Odyssey, Smash Ultimate VR relies on Nintendo Labo's VR Kit, specifically the Toy-Con VR Goggles accessory. The update is also free and doesn't interfere with any existing data.

The trailer accompanying VR implementation gives some additional information about how the new mode works. It's only available in timed, offline matches and only with a limited number of stages. The recently-released trailer says "dozens" of stages without giving any details, but we rounded them all up below — roughly three dozen, to be exact.

VR in Smash works sort of like it does for BoTW. Part of it is a spectator event, where players can view CPU battles through the Toy-Con VR Goggles; they can also look around the battlefield, seeing what's above, below, and to the sides. This is the default mode.

However, it also lets players fight against the CPU by replacing the P1 CPU with a human player, like in any other match.

Here's the full list of Smash Ultimate stages compatible with VR:

Despite all the magnificent games the SNES and, later, the original PlayStation had to offer, it wasn't until the GameBoy Advance era that he finally discovered RPGs, which quickly became a favorite genre. He holds a BA in history, an MA in history, and is currently pursuing an MA in strategic communication.
