According to Lets Go Digital, the patent has been filed yetin February 2018, and it was published only on August 22, 2019. The document talks about a new VR headset for the Nintendo Switch, which the Big N may be working on.





Externally, the headset resembles Labo VR, but nowThe base is plastic, not cardboard. The interior is made of foam for greater comfort, and the lenses are already built into the body. Like the previous version, users will have to insert the Switch into a helmet, making Nintendo's VR headset completely portable.
