Rumor: Switch VR Could Be Announced This Year
According with rumors, Nintendo will have it’s own VR headset, it’s expected that it will complement the Nintendo Labo line-up for a truly unique gaming experience. It’s suggested by insiders that Nintendo will make an announcement late 2019 or early 2020.
GoNintendo added fuel to the fire, revealing how a “very trusted source” said VR support for the Switch was, in fact, true and Nintendo Labo would be one of the first games to support it. Right now, there are no details about what this rumoured Labo kit would contain or what it would be called.
Last October, at Seattle’s Geekwire Summit, Nintendo of America President and COO Reggie Fils- Aimé explained how Nintendo had been experimenting with VR technology but said it would need to be fun in order to get the green light:
“This is something we constantly think about, experiment with. For virtual reality, we’ve said: it’s tech that we’re looking at, but in the end it has to be fun. That’s our mission, and that is what we do arguably better than anyone else.”
I’m very eager to see how Nintendo implements VR to their games, their first attempt failed miserably and we all know the story behind probably the one and only big mistake from Nintendo when it comes to consoles or handheld, But with Nintendo Labo the company will give players a fun way to interact with their games at a really considerable price, so if this rumor turns out to be true I’m sure that this would be a success for Nintendo.
