As part of today's splash of PSVR2 news from Sony, it's been confirmed Tiger Blade will launch for the headset on 17th November 2023. Catch the trailer above to see this flashy, stylish game in action, complete with colourful sword fighting and gunplay in an alternate take on Korea.
Here's the setup: "Set in an alternate Korea, you play the role of a deadly assassin working for the Horangi chapter of the Tiger Clans. Ordered to steal a mysterious package from a rival chapter, you are shocked to find the object of the heist is a tiger cub. Thought to be extinct for a hundred years, the mythical creature is now desired by every gang in Sewoon and they'll stop at nothing to take it from you."
In addition to the swords and weapons, your character also comes equipped with a grappling gun. This can be used to steal weapons from enemies or act as cover — apparently, such a nimble gadget has no issues deflecting bullets. The environments are something else developer Ikimasho says it's particularly proud of, using real-life locations in Korea to fashion docks, marketplaces, and alleys.
Co-founder and CEO Yann Suquet said: "We’ve designed these to be as immersive as possible, and we’re continuing to add layers of detail and polish to textures, lighting, and VFX as we approach the finish line of Tiger Blade’s development."
