Spice & Wolf VR, which was previously announced into existence last month, has added yet another platform to call home.
The Nintendo Switch will be getting Spice & Wolf VR sometime during the Summer of this year, according to a press release from Gemdrops, one of the lead developers of the game. As stated by My Nintendo News, it will mark the first third-party title to be compatible with the company’s Labo VR kit.
The following is an overview of the game provided by Gemdrops:
“Into the forest, to see you.”
Presenting a virtual reality animation work based on the highly popular light novel series Spice and Wolf, which sold over four million copies, all developed in collaboration with the series’ original creative team. Take up the role of a peddler and experience a wondrous day deep in the forest, in a watermill, with Holo the wolf goddess, cute ears, tail and all!
In addition to the main mode, where you can enjoy anime within the virtual reality space, there’s also an “Interactive Mode” where you’re able to pat Holo on the head, pet her tail, and just have fun examining and moving other objects around the room. Please try it out and see how wonderful the feeling of being inside a 2D world can be, an experience unique to virtual reality animation!
Oculus Rift, Oculus Go, and HTC Vive versions of the game will be released on June 3rd for $24.99/2,570 yen, so players will be able to experience Holo’s whimsy earlier on these platforms.
