How to play Zelda: Breath in the Wild in VR step-by-step

There are several simple steps for you to play Zelda Breath of the Wild VR, though the game doesn’t explain in any detail how to get there. Here’s how:

1. First, download the latest software update for Zelda: Breath of the Wild (version 1.6.0). To do this, on the Home screen, press the + button, then Software Update, and then Via the Internet. Also, make sure you have Labo VR fully assembled and ready to go.

2. Load up any Zelda save file, then when ready to enter Zelda VR, pause the game, then select Options.

3. On the Options screen, go to the Toy-Con VR Goggles option – it’s the second one down – and select it.

4. You’ll then be asked whether to Use VR Goggles or Cancel. Select the first option when ready.

5. Now disconnect one of the Joy-Cons so the Switch can slide into the Labo VR headset, then reattach it when it’s in place. Now look into the goggles – Zelda: Breath of the Wild will now be playable in VR!
