In Super Mario Odyssey, there will be three new mini-levels with trials to complete in VR, whereas in Breath of the Wild, you can play the entirety of the game through the headset. These free updates will launch on April 25 with the VR Kit. It will be very interesting to see how well Nintendo pulls this off, especially because there doesn’t seem to be a way to strap on the VR headsets. All will be revealed this month.
