Arvore, the studio behind popular classic VR series, Pixel Ripped, today announced its most current task, Yuki.
Like Pixel Ripped prior to it, Yuki looks a little like a throwback to classic gaming genres, combining VR and the bullet hell shooter. Commemorating games like Star Fox, you get a virtual action figure and then steer it through arcade-style levels with your hand. It’s like revisiting your childhood and bringing it to life, a style that’s ending up being progressively common in the designer’s games. Have a look at the trailer listed below.
Yuki Reveal Trailer
Yuki in fact began life in VR arcades via SpringboardVR back in 2019, but will now be making the shift to home headsets. We’re not sure if the home variation will match the game edition 1:1, though. It’s a comparable idea to video games like Shooty Skies Overdrive, requiring fast reactions as you evade barriers, enemies and attacks which using power-ups to upgrade your own arsenal.
The video game’s likewise influenced by anime art designs (though, notably, developed in São Paulo so not actually anime itself) and sees you eradicating huge cat heads and skulls. Evaluating by the trailer, employer fights seem to be consisted of too.
No word on a possible Pixel Ripped 3 for now, then, however this appears like it could keep us delighted in the meantime.
Yuki is coming to Oculus Quest and PC VR headsets in the first half of next year, with a launch on PSVR prepared for the 2nd half of 2021. Will you be checking out Yuki next year? Let us know in the remarks below!
