Spice and Wolf VR will launch for Oculus Quest, PlayStation 4 (with PlayStation VR support), and Switch (with Toy-Con VR Goggles support) this summer, developers Spicy Tails and Gemdrops announced. The Switch version is newly announced.
As previously announced, the Oculus Rift, Oculus Go, and HTC Vive versions will launch on June 3 for $24.99 / 2,570 yen.
It should be noted that some features of the game’s “Interactive Mode” are limited in the PC (non-virtual reality), Oculus Go, and Switch versions. Interactive Mode allows players to pet Holo’s head and tail, as well as interact with items.
Here is an overview of the game, via 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!
Spice and Wolf VR will be playable at the Gemdrops booth at BitSummit 7 Spirits, which runs from June 1 to 2 at the Kyoto International Exhibition Hall Miyako Messe.
