Here’s how to turn your Labo VR kit into a Zelda: Breath of the Wild art piece

Go go Sheika colors

On Thursday, Nintendo will update Mario Odyssey and Zelda: Breath of the Wild with Labo VR support. It really feels like those games should have been updated before Labo VR hit, so they could garner a lot more pre-orders, but regardless, the functionality is coming.

To celebrate, YouTube channel Just Intense Gaming (thanks Jeff!) managed to mod their Labo kit for the occasion with an awesome looking Breath of the Wild/Sheika-themed headset. The channel shows off how they did it, which now only involves an aesthetic vinyl makeover but a functional one: straps and a facemask allow players to use the kit without holding it to their head, eliminating one of the worst parts of the experience.

The idea of re-configuring Labo isn’t just an isolated homebrew thing, as Nintendo actively encourages it with their Labo software, complete with a trio of original characters guiding you along the way. I think Nintendo would be proud of this one!
