Earlier this week, Brie Larson (star of Captain Marvel and Avengers: Endgame) was a guest on “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon,” where she and the host took on the popular virtual reality game “Beat Saber.”
Brie was the clear winner of the VR rhythm game contest, as she adeptly performed the required moves to slash objects using virtual light sabers.
“Beat Saber” is one of the most popular VR games around today, available for the Oculus Rift, HTC Vive, and Windows Mixed Reality headsets, as well as PlayStation VR. It will also be available on the upcoming Oculus Quest standalone headset, available later this spring.
Watch Jimmy and Brie in action on YouTube:
