PlayStation VR owners who like to own a physical copy for their virtual reality (VR) collections will be able to add another to that list today. Endeavor One has collaborated with Perp Games to create a physical version of its ninja experience Arashi: Castles of Sin, with a couple of special extras thrown in.
In this Special Retail Edition, you’ll not only get the videogame on a nice physical disc but you’ll also get a downloadable digital artbook with loads of awesome images, plus a digital soundtrack so you can get that Arashi: Castles of Sin vibe wherever you are.
Exclusive to PlayStation VR, Arashi: Castles of Sin drops you in feudal Japan as deadly shinobi assassin Kenshiro the last surviving son of the noble House Arashi. “Vicious bandits known as the Six Oni of Iga have seized control of castles across the country, carving a bloody path of terror in their wake,” the synopsis explains. “With the guidance of your cousin, Ayane, and your faithful wolf companion, Haru, at your side, liberate the land and vanquish the merciless despots staking their claim.”
Armed with an array of feudal-era Japanese weapons, including a bow, katana, blowgun, shuriken, poisoned food and more you have to infiltrate castles and kill these six bandits. Arashi: Castles of Sin provides multiple routes depending on whether you prefer a stealthy rooftop approach to quietly dispatch enemies or a more direct assault. Plus, with Haru by your side, you’ll be able to command the wolf to attack foes or create distractions.
Reviewing Arashi: Castles of Sin for its PlayStation VR launch, VRFocus said: “Arashi: Castles of Sin has some solid ideas and mechanics going for it, from the wealth of tools available to the ability to pick and choose how you attack each castle. Yet the issues do hamstring the experience and stop it from being the great VR ninja game it could have been.”
The Special Retail Edition of Arashi: Castles of Sin is available now in Europe for £29.99 GBP. It’s sold out on Perp Games’ own store but retailers including GAME and Amazon have it in stock. For further updates on the latest PlayStation VR releases, keep reading VRFocus.
