Today’s Niche Spotlight is Spice & Wolf VR 2, a short VR adaptation of the popular light novel and anime series by Spicy Tails.
This short VR adventure clocks in at around 30 minutes, and acts more as a VR anime episode than a true game. This second installment in the Spice & Wolf VR series is set long after Lawrence and Holo have settled down together, retiring from the traveling merchant life to start a family, and open a bathhouse.
The game explores the idyllic daily lives of Lawrence, Holo, and their daughter Myuri. Aside from the main story of the game, players can sit down to watch part of the anime as they interact with their wolfgirl family.
You can find the new trailer below.
Spice & Wolf VR 2 is available on Windows PC via Steam for $24.99 USD, and supports the HTC Vive and Oculus.
You can find the rundown (via Steam) below:
At the end of his journey with the wolf goddess Holo, former traveling merchant Lawrence settled down with her and opened a bathhouse.
The couple was blessed with an adorable daughter and an idyllic life.
However, the beautiful wolves have a weakness for delicious meals and their food expenses are a source of headaches for Lawrence.
One day, as Lawrence is going about his fur side business to further fill the family’s coffers, a slight incident occurs.
To further complicate things, Holo saunters in with quite the feast.
This is a VR Animation of Spice and Wolf: Spring Log, sequel to the original Spice and Wolf VR animation.
The game has a 30 minute story and a game mode where you can watch part of the anime alongside its characters in the style of Japanese paper street theater.
A peaceful life in the bathhouse with wolfgirls awaits.
You can enjoy the game and view the included anime without a VR headset in its Non-VR Mode.
