Käpt'n Posted April 1, 2016 Share Posted April 1, 2016 (edited) Since VR headsets are starting to become a thing now and with Sony getting their headset ready to launch later this year, I've been thinking about how Nintendo could implement a VR headset. I honestly don't think that the traditional VR experience of putting you right in the action would work for Big N. Most of their games revolve around third person experiences. A first person Mario game would be awful! It would be slow and with all the spinning flipping that Mario does the experience would be a pure vomit fest. Instead, I think something similar to Microsoft's Hololens would be cool. Because I think that jump and run sorta games would work beautifully as some kind of diorama experience that you could look at from the outside. The Captain Toad game gave me this idea, and the indie game "Legend of Dungeon" on Steam has a VR mode that works in a similar way. Nintendo loves hiding shit in their levels, how cool would it be to not only search with your character to find hidden items, but also to search from a perspective outside of the level? With a controller you could also influence the level to uncover hidden stuff. Like on a beach level you could brush away the sand with your hand to uncover stuff. It wouldn't just be mindless blowing in a mic or poking a screen with a stylus to do stuff, it would be much more interactive. Nintendo also has all these cool characters in their IPs. How awesome would it be to have the option to have some sort of character viewer in which you could walk around Nintendo characters and see them in live size? Like a gallery of all Pokémon or Mario characters and items! And you could... grope them... with the controller... Like in PokéMonAmi... :9 The only problem that I see is that the hardware to do this would probably cost a fortune X3 It would probably be in the pricerange of the HTC Vive plus a high end gaming PC, so roughly 2000 bucks. I highly doubt that Nintendo would want to release hardware that is that expensive and I guess that is also the reason why they didn't announce any VR stuff yet.
