Earlier this month Halfbrick Studios revealed development of Fruit Ninja VR 2 a follow-up to its popular 2016 virtual reality (VR) title. Taking fruit destruction to new heights, the videogame is due to launch at the end of the year for PC VR headsets with public playtesting currently underway.
The original Fruit Ninja VR was a great introduction for VR newcomers, slicing up fruit with a sword for maximum score combos. Fruit Ninja VR 2 aims to improve upon this gameplay by introducing an explorable world as well as a VR staple, the bow and arrow. So you’ll be able to wander the Fruit Ninja Temple grounds, honing those skills across a range of challenges.
In combination with the classic katana, the new bow will allow for new scoring opportunities like being able to shoot rows of fruit. Very important considering the main objective is to score as many points as possible, achieving a high score and that all-important A ranking. Or if you want to take a break then see what else the temple has in store, enjoying the sights and sounds whilst finding some of the interactive objects on the grounds.
Fruit Ninja VR 2 will have 25 levels of challenging fruit carnage to play through, some of which you can see in the latest playtest trailer below. You can also get in on the action ahead of launch. Over on Steam, you can request access to the Fruit Ninja VR 2 playtest with Halfbrick Studios notifying you by email if your request was successful.
“We are eager to see and hear what our community has to say about our new VR experience and have a quiver filled with features coming soon,” the studio says in a statement.
Fruit Ninja VR 2 is currently slated for a later 2021 launch for Oculus Rift, HTC Vive, Valve Index and Windows Mixed Reality headsets. As further updates are released, VRFocus will let you know.
