Brisbane, Australia-based Halfbrick Studios has confirmed its juggernaut Fruit Ninja series is coming to VR.
“After the latest VR technology was released, we felt that there was no better game suited to VR than Fruit Ninja,” said Halfbrick’s Adam Wood, product manager for Fruit Ninja VR. “The simplicity of Fruit Ninja with the total immersion of VR creates an experience like no other.”
Fruit Ninja VR will feature three familiar modes – Classic, Arcade and Zen – and a PvP mode is also planned. It will launch this month on Steam for the HTC Vive and should arrive on Oculus Rift, Google Daydream, and PlayStation VR at the end of the year.
Halfbrick’s Fruit Ninja was first released on iOS back in April, 2010. It’s appeared on a host of other platforms since and last year notched over 1 billion downloads worldwide. As of last month there’s also a live-action film adaptation on the way.
