Rumoured Nintendo VR headset could be just what gaming needs

There we were hoping for news about the Nintendo Switch 2 or Nintendo Switch Pro, and along comes a completely different rumour. According to someone who has provide accurate leaks before, Nintendo has developed a prototype VR headset. 

There's little detail about what the headset would offer or how it would be marketed, but it seems that it won't be a Nintendo Switch accessory, at least not exclusively. Perhaps most intriguingly, Google is said to be involved (see our pick of the best Nintendo Switch deals for bargains on Nintendo's current line up).
