The massively successful fruit-slicing game is making its way to virtual reality.
Developer Halfbrick already brought is massively successful mobile hit, Fruit Ninja, to Oculus Rift and HTC Vive. Now it’s time for the game to make its way to Sony’s PlayStation VR.
Fruit Ninja was first released on mobile devices back in 2010, a magnificent time when touchscreen devices were still new and my voluptuous beard had slightly less grey in it. Since then the game has been downloaded more than one billion times and our team has continued to perfect it. We took that game and with the luxury of no real time pressure, the team went to town on perfecting this arcade game and recreating it for PlayStation VR.
Slicing fruit with your fingertips is one thing, but slicing fruit in virtual reality with PlayStation Move Motion Controllers is a whole new ball game. It doesn’t just “feel” good. It’s an amazing, visceral experience. I should know… I’ve spent more time waving my arms around like a madman than anyone else at Halfbrick!
Now, thanks to PlayStation VR, you too can enjoy this bizarre act without the expensive grocery bill. Think about it. Why convince a friend to pelt fruit at you when you can enjoy four addictive game modes — Classic, Zen, Arcade, and Survival — all from the comfort of your living room?
For the first time in Fruit Ninja, you will be able to deflect and juggle bombs without them exploding. Check out the gameplay trailer below:
