Nintendo Switch Meets VR: How Well Does It Work?

A patent from last year suggests that Nintendo will be jumping on the VR bandwagon with a headset that will house the Switch tablet. Some fans have decided to experiment early and get an idea of what the experience may be like. Considering that the Switch is not only bulky but also features a low-resolution screen, are we merely on course for another Virtual Boy moment?

آ…YouTuber Nintendrew decided to leapfrog past Nintendo’s R&D team and use some workaround solutions to see what the screen looks like inside of a VR device. Using a tablet-focused VR headset called the Durovis Dive 7, he found that the Nintendo Switch actually fit just perfectly. From there, he recorded his own footage of The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D from the Nintendo 3DS and displayed it back as side-by-side footage on YouTube. Then, he just had to slide his way into the Switch’s web browser, pull it up on YouTube, and he was good to go.
