Several weeks ago Japanese studio Spicy Tails announced a sequel to its virtual reality (VR) animation Spice and Wolf VR, continuing the story of Holo and Kraft Lawrence. This week the first teaser trailer has dropped alongside new screenshots, revealing the plotline for the first time.
Spice and Wolf VR 2 does continue the story, with Lawrence ending his travelling merchant lifestyle and settling down with the wolf goddess Holo, opening a bathhouse together. Living an idyllic life they have a daughter Myuri until: “One day, as Lawrence is going about his fur side business to further fill the family’s coffers, a slight incident occurs and Holo saunters in with quite the feast,” the synopsis explains.
Developed in conjunction with Gemdrop Game Studios, Spice and Wolf VR 2 is being built for PlayStation VR, HTC Vive, Oculus Rift and Oculus Go as well as Nintendo Switch. As Spicy Tails previously revealed, the title won’t natively support Oculus Quest due to failing the certification process. It did state, however, that Spice and Wolf VR 2 would still be playable on the standalone headset via Oculus Link for those that have a PC.
If you’ve not seen Spice and Wolf VR yet, the title is based-on Isuna Hasekura’s original novel which sees Lawrence stop in the town of Pasloe where he meets the 600-year-old Holo. She takes the form of a teenage girl – apart from her apparent wolf tail and ears – joining him on his travels.
Currently, there’s no release date for Spice and Wolf VR 2 with Spicy Tails merely saying it’s coming soon. It’ll retail for $24.99 USD when it does. As we previously noted, that could happen this year simply because new Oculus Go apps won’t be added to the store after 18th December, due to the headset being discontinued.
