Fruit Ninja VR will launch for the HTC Vive later this month, with versions for the Oculus Rift, Playstation VR and Google Daydream planned for later this year, the company announced this week.

Based on the video the company released, the game involves using gesture-based controllers to slice fruit. Only the Vive has these controllers already on the market. Controllers for the Oculus Rift and Daydream are expected to be on the market later on this year.

  • Many of the big game studios ignored the mobile platform because the market was so small, and smartphone games were so limited compared to what they could do on PCs and consoles. Mobile games just didn’t seem worth it.

    By the time they noticed how big the market was getting, they had missed the opportunity to learn how to develop and monetize games for this audience and to build brand name recognition. Instead, we had Angry Birds and Farmville and Fruit Ninja.

    Looks like the mobile game studios aren’t about to let the VR market slip by them.

    Rovio is also reportedly working on Angry Birds VR.

  • Very cool! I like the guy that was really into the swords.
