Publisher Microids and developer Virtuallyz Gaming have announced rail shooter comeback Operation Wolf Returns: First Mission VR for PlayStation VR2, Quest 2, and PICO 4. It will launch on June 22.
As previously announced, the revival of the 1987 arcade game from TAITO is also coming to non-virtual reality platforms as Operation Wolf Returns: First Mission this fall. It will be available both physically and digitally for PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, and Switch, and digitally for Xbox Series, Xbox One, and PC via Steam.
Here is an overview of the virtual reality version, via Microids:
Developed and published by TAITO in 1987, the arcade game Operation Wolf left a mark for a whole generation of gamers, being one of the first games to offer side scrolling rail shooting action. Operation Wolf Returns: First Mission VR will remain faithful to the spirit of the original game, while premiering a new artistic direction.
In its solo virtual reality campaign, play as a special agent fighting a new criminal organization. In addition to arms and drug trafficking, the organization, led by the mysterious General Viper, has developed a powerful new weapon. After discovering several of its bases, you will be sent to dismantle the organization, destroy the weapon and free the hostages held captive in surrounding camps.
