There are a lot of video games we can’t wait to experience with Virtual Reality headsets such as the Oculus Rift but judging by this fan video, Nintendo’s Super Smash Bros. series isn’t one of them.
Created by Youtubers SoKrispyMedia, “First Person Super Smash Bros.” plays exactly as advertised, depicting what the chaotic fighting series might look like in VR. It’s hectic enough trying to keep up with Mario and Link’s various moves, but ridiculous powers like Kirby’s suction show just how horrifying this type of game would be in first person.
At the same time, the video does make it look like an interesting experience, albeit one that makes us a bit queasy. If the next Smash Bros. doesn’t have some sort of VR mode, Nintendo will have committed a huge oversight.
