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.
