Did you know Konami cult classic, Zone of the Enders: The 2nd Runner, is getting another remaster? Well it is, and it’s going to have PSVR and SteamVR support. Judging by the trailer below, that’s a very good thing.
For those that don’t know, Zone of the Enders is a mech combat series in which players pilot Jehuty, an advanced combat suit capable of flight, fire and laser sword fighting. The traditional game is played from third-person, Zone of the Enders: The 2nd Runner – MARS, VR support will give you the chance to experience the action from a cockpit view for the first time. There’s also a Very Easy difficulty being added in if you want to just blow stuff up without any worries.
Not only that, but there’s all-new content that looks like it’s designed specifically for VR. You’ll get to explore a new hangar environment where Jehuty is docked, for example, and there are 3D model viewers, because of course there is in a VR game. If you’re playing on a standard screen then you’ll also be able to enjoy the game in 4K.
The remaster is due to hit PS4 and PC on September 6th. There’s no word on native Oculus Rift support yet but, hopefully, the game will run just fine with the headset through SteamVR.
