SINGAPORE –  July 17, 2019  – First-person hybrid shooter and sword fighting virtual reality (VR) game Sairento VR is coming to North American retail for PlayStation®VR on Aug. 13, 2019. Sairento is currently the only VR game in which players can perform somersaults, multiple jumps, side flips, wall runs, and power slides as they hack, slash, duck, and weave through hordes of enemies. Developed by Mixed Realms and published by Perp Games, physical copies of the game are available to pre-order now for $39.99 USD through Amazon, Best Buy and GameStop.

 

In Sairento, players join the ranks of the Silent Ones, a righteous but covert organization of seemingly ordinary people who practice the long-forsaken code and martial arts of the ancient samurais and ninjas. Some members of the order are turning into nano-infected shells of their former selves, and the player must uncover the sinister secret behind this malevolence to restore order to a reimagined futuristic Japan.

 

With a wide range of weapon types to test and upgrade, players can master both gunplay and sword fighting – even simultaneously, with the right relics. The ability to slow time in combat and to perform impressive acrobatic feats enables Sairento players to become the ultimate ninja.

 

The Sairento VR physical PlayStation VR version features:

  • Single Player Campaign Mode Players looking to skirt the shadows solo can delve into the full single-player campaign, tasked with identifying the root of corruption within the Silent Ones organization. To find the truth, they must face off against mutated samurais, devious ninjas, creepy robot geishas and hulking sumo wrestlers.
  • Single- or Multiplayer Challenge Modes – In addition to a single-player campaign and challenge modes, Sairento offers a standalone mission mode that can be tackled solo or cooperatively with another player.
  • Action Hero Prowess – With the ability to slow time down, players can perform the artistic executions of their choice to become the ultimate ninja badass. In addition to the range of combat choices, players can perform a wide range of acrobatics, leaping 15 feet into the air, performing double jumps, running across walls and sliding across the floor to outmaneuver enemies.
  • Fully Loaded Arsenal – Including all base game weapons and the “Sairento VR – Weapons Pack” DLC from the PC version, the physical edition offers a variety of armaments for players to adapt their tactics to best suit their own style. Katanas, guns, bows, kunais and throwing glaives can all be enhanced with relics to equip the player as they contend against the ever-present cyber ninja threat. And really, anything can become a projectile weapon with the right modifications.
 

Sairento VR is coming to North American retail for PlayStation VR on Aug. 13, 2019 for $39.99, with pre-orders available now. The game is rated M for Mature by the ESRB for Blood and Gore, Intense Violence and Strong Language. Two PlayStation®Move Motion Controllers are required. The PlayStation VR version is fully compatible with foot motion controller 3dRudder. The game is also available digitally on the PlayStation Store, and both digitally and physically in Europe.
