Smash Bros Ultimate VR and amiibo features coming in v3.1.0

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate version patch

Soon after the game celebrated another sales milestone, Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is looking to make another splash with an update. The Twitter account @SSBUbot has tweeted what appear to be in-game notes from a forthcoming Super Smash Bros Ultimate VR update. The series of tweets indicate that VR mode is coming to the game through the Labo Toy-Con goggles, which have previously been used to bring VR functionality to The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild and Super Mario Odyssey. The Twitter bot also revealed that new amiibo features will come in the next update. It appears that players will soon be able to send their amiibo on training journeys where they become stronger by fighting other Figure Players. These trained amiibo will also be able to join Battle Arenas. With a posted start time of May 31, the update could certainly be right around the corner, so keep an eye out.

Some of the tweets are posted below.

This is rather unexpected but should add a bit more fun content to an already-spectacular game. I cannot really imagine how virtual reality will work when the Super Smash Bros Ultimate VR update drops, but the new amiibo functionality alone will be a welcome addition to the game for a lot of players.
