There is a VR Video section on the Labo VR and has a nice little nod to the Virtual Boy

I think I'm gonna pick up the basic set. Haven't been super into labo but the VR definitely looks cool.

Hard pass. It would be like trying to play a VB while you're also trying to hold it against your face because the stand is broken/missing; and few people are going to want to play laying on their backs with the LaboVR and their $300 Switch balancing on their faces while cardboard gets pressed into their skin--no thanks.

We all should support Labo VR because mark my words this is a test for Switch VR.
On the 25th you will be able to play 3 stages of Super Mario Oddesey and all of Breath of the wild in Labo VR

I really hope you're joking around because this a bit of an outlandish comparison.

That Easter Egg is maybe a way for Nintendo to eiter tease possible VB content in the future or they want to check and see how much interest it creates for the VB. I am sure many people have not even seen a Virtual Boy or know the name.

There was always some tiny VB stuff in some games like Smash Bros or Animal Crossing. But that were only statues or items for your decoration. Wario Ware had some VB inspired stuff but that Video above is the first time that Nintendo is really demonstrating the System in 3D. I think that is a big step, because so far Nintendo tried to avoid bigger VB content. I have hope to see some official VB emulation at one point.
Afterall, emulation have become a quite easy and cheap way to make older games run and Nintendo had great success with the NES and SNES Mini.

Yes, I agree fully with Fire-WSP. It would be awesome if Nintendo would bring a VB-Emulator for VR (maybe also the fact that the VB celebrates next year 25 years anniversar helps. NES mini and SNES mini were also released on anniversary years, right?).

And last but not least, Nintendo cannot ignore the fact that the VB is still kept alive by crazy VB-lovers around the globe- not many, but Iím sure Nintendo realizes that there must be a special passion for something (so also for Nintendo) if people expand the VB-universe since years and are ready to spend a lot of money for it.

So, lets support that and download every current and hopefull upcoming VB-content for VR :-)
