Fruit Ninja was one of the first mobile games I ever played, and it still holds a special place in my heart. So I was pretty excited to learn that the fruit-slicing series, which first launched back in 2010 for iOS, is headed to virtual reality for some immersive ninja mayhem.
Fruit Ninja VR is coming soon to the HTC Vive and Oculus Rift, according to the company’s website. IGN reports that it’s also headed to PlayStation VR and Daydream. Presumably, it will be available for Sony and Google’s upcoming VR platforms once they launch later this year.
The game looks pretty similar to the original Fruit Ninja, but instead of swiping with your fingers you’re wielding a pair of virtual swords. That means you’ll need a pair of motion-tracking controllers to get the full experience. There are also three different modes to choose from: Classic, Arcade and Zen.
Fruit Ninja is actually in the midst of a small renaissance. Rumor has it the studio is also working on a live-action comedy film based on the game, which sounds totally unnecessary and ridiculous. A virtual reality version seems like a much better alternative and we can’t wait to try slashing some fruit in VR once it’s released.
