Oculus Rift Gets Fruit Ninja-Inspired Title

There is a range of videogame experiences that fans would like to see adapted into virtual reality (VR) with the Oculus Rift headset, from first-person shooters to adventure titles. Few, though, would jump to popular casual experience Fruit Ninja as the ideal title for an adaption. All the same, a title heavily inspired by Halfbrick Studios’ sensation has recently been released with support for the Oculus Rift, and it can currently be downloaded for free.


The experience, titled VR Fruit Cut, is compatible with the Razer Hydra motion controller. Players hold the controller at around waist height and use it to control a sword in-game. The objective of the title is to use the sword to cut as many pieces of fruit as possible as they are thrown up into the air in the space of 60 seconds. In the screenshot seen above two swords are being used at once, suggesting the title supports two Hydras for either two-handed or multiplayer modes. The title will remember player’s highest score as they play.

VR Fruit Cut is available for free now over on the official Oculus VR Share beta. It can be downloaded on PC, with no word on possible Mac or Linux versions of the title. VRFocus will continue to follow any and all new releases in VR, bringing you the latest on them.
