Last month, Skydance Interactive and Endeavor One announced that Arashi: Castles of Sin – Final Cut would be released for multiple VR headsets in November. The publisher and developer, respectively, have now updated that launch timeline, seeing Arashi delayed by a month.
It was originally set for a 16th November rollout on PSVR 2, Meta Quest 2 and 3, and for PSVR headsets on Steam. That date has now been moved to 5th December 2023. There’s been no indication as to the cause of the delay.
Upgraded samurai adventures
Arashi: Castles of Sin was originally released as a PlayStation VR exclusive back in 2021.
“Take on the role of the deadly assassin Kenshiro as you travel across feudal Japan to defeat the Six Oni of Iga, a bandit group spreading chaos across the land. Through a wide variety of weapons, tools, and techniques, you’ll infiltrate conquered castles and outwit your enemies as you hunt down each Oni.
“With your cousin Ayane providing guidance back at base and your loyal wolf Haru on the field, prove yourself as the ultimate warrior and save Japan.”
This Final Cut edition has been upgraded for modern VR headsets, of course. The graphical fidelity has been improved to further immerse players in its feudal Japanese setting. The controls have also been tweaked to further maximise the fluidity of scaling rooftops and killing enemies. Utilise blades, grenades, mines, arrows, blowguns, pistols, and more in your quest to kill the Six Oni of Iga. And let’s not forget about your trusty wolf Haru, who can cause distractions and take down enemies for you.
