PSVR2 sequel Another Fisherman's Tale will release for Sony's headset on 11th May 2023, its publisher Vertigo Games has confirmed. A four-minute gameplay showcase accompanies today's news, which reveals everything you can expect from the second chapter of the game. Check it out above for some puzzling and adventuring action, presented by the developer Innerspace.
The sequel to A Fisherman's Tale, which drew positive reviews on Sony's first VR headset, its mechanics have been reinvented to let you detach, replace, and control your own limbs and objects in the environment. "Throw Bob’s hand across a ravine and then make it crawl to retrieve an object, or send your head elsewhere for a different view of things," a press release mentions. "Control your environment with your puppeteering hands, picking up distant objects, items and tools and interacting with each level’s unique layout."
The new release date helps to flesh out the list of New PSVR2 Game Release Dates in 2023, with Walkabout Mini Golf also out the same day while Hello Neighbor: Search and Rescue follows two weeks later. Humanity, which has a confirmed PSVR2 mode, is also releasing next month. Are you interested? Let us know in the comments below.
I liked the look of this when it was revealed. To be honest, ive been in 2 minds to sell my psvr2 before it drops in price in the 2nd hand market like a stone. It just doesnt get used anywhere near like i thought it would do and being a family man i dont like the way it takes me out of that casual space where i can chat and interact whilst i play. Great bit of kit but it doesnt suit my gaming style.
"PSVR2 has no games!"
Can someone send me some cash to pay for the no games all arriving in May? Going broke on all these non-purchases. IDK what all these "PlayStation" line items are on my CC statements. Clearly it's not games purchased since there aren't any....
Do we know if the first one is coming to PSVR2? It's fine if not, I'd probably watch a YouTuber play to see if I'll be interested in this one.
The status on my replacement PSVR2 says preparing to ship so hopefully I get it tomorrow or Wednesday!
@Kidfunkadelic83 exactly the way I feel about PSVR2. I'll be trading it in tomorrow for a very good price. Just the thought of selling it is making me happy!
@Neny48 CEX by any chance? Its an awsome bit of tech and ive had fun playing pistol whip and GT7 but its just not for me overall.
@NEStalgia No games worth spending all that money on I think they mean.
Super excited for this one! Does it happen to run at 90fps, or 60fps reprojected at 120?
You'd probably be a much bigger fan of Augmented reality since it brings VR characters and environmental objects straight into your living room(etc) where you can fully see your surroundings. The possibilities are practically endless with this tech and it's the polar opposite of isolating. It's even capable of projecting a giant in mid-air flat screen OLED, and you can adjust it's size up to 200+ inches, while of course seeing everything else in your living room.
But you're going to have to wait until Quest 3 for that , unless you've got $3000 US to burn on Apple VR which is supposedly pretty mind blowing. Spec wise, it blows Quest 3 out of the water....AR at 4K per eye, 120d FOV, Micro-Oled display plus pancake lenses, wireless, all-inclusive and portable etc. It's going to be much lighter than the PSVR2 clearly due to it's sleek compact design and having the Wireless battery clip on to your belt. I could of sworn i read that it's graphics chip is more powerful than Quest 3's too. Q3's is supposedly at least 2x as powerful as Q2's. Either way, I'll probably be getting both Apple VR(eventually) & Q3(day one) hehe.
As for PSVR2. I'm definitely keeping mine. Resident Evil 8, Moss: Book 2 and now Another Fisherman's Tale are like the holy PSVR2 trinity at this point. There have been moments in RE8 that had my jaw hitting the floor in utter gob smack. lol If the head set died tomorrow I'd still keep it for that game alone. But ya, It just sucks that sony had to cut corners in order to get it down to $749 CAD. I'm sure they could of adopted a similar tracking system that would of allowed for Ring-less VR controllers(Like Quest Pro), while using Pancake + Micro-OLED like Apple VR, which would allow for a wide sweet spot and for the front visor to be dramatically flatter, more compact and lighter. Including an optional wireless to PS5 Connection(With the battery being clipped on your side) would of been great too. But all of the above would of probably had the VR2 trickling past $1000.
As is, it's headset bulk, tethered cable, narrow frustrating sweet spot(Thanks to using fresnel lenses)and Jumbo Sized Ring controllers make it look like it's 10 years dated in the VR world when you side it next to Apple VR. VR2 is not a very in and out experience either, due to a few little barriers like the finicky narrow sweet spot, Controllers are cumbersome to get on(thanks to the rings) and being tethered makes stand up VR feel a little sloppy. And it doesn't even have it's own VR Echo System either. Yet, it's still capable of offering incredible VR experiences if you can get past a few of these niggles that get in the way
Apple on the other hand isn't holding back, they're clearly going all out. Here's the latest model reveal >
