The latest update for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate adds support for Nintendo Labo VR.
Update 3.1.0 is out now for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate on Nintendo Switch. It brings a host of gameplay changes, plus the option to experience one player fights against CPU opponents in virtual reality.
Just like the VR mode in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, it unfortunately requires holding the Nintendo console and VR goggles up to your head to play. It’s good for strengthening those muscles, we suppose.
Also included in the latest update is amiibo support for Battle Arenas, plus a new amiibo journey mode in which ‘Figure Players’ can battle opponents online.
The update also adds a host of tweaks and balance changes to the game’s roster of fighters. Ken’s hitstun shuffle travel distance has been shortened, for example, and Captain Falcon’s Side Tilt attack now has an extended launch distance.
You can read the full patch notes on the Nintendo support website.
