Layton’s Mystery Journey For Nintendo Switch Rated By The ESRB

Another sign it’s on the way.

Random: Experience The Legend Of Zelda: Breath Of The Wild With PlayStation VR

Switching it up.

The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild might have only received its Nintendo Labo VR compatibility update yesterday, but virtual reality enthusiasts have already discovered how to get it working with the PlayStation VR headset.

This method means you don’t need to own Labo VR and you won’t need to use Nintendo’s cardboard setup to try out the new update for Zelda on Switch. The higher quality headset pays off – with the image quality slightly sharper on the device’s OLED display. It’s all thanks to the HDMI ports and PSVR Cinema Mode.
