Fruit Ninja VR chops its way onto PlayStation VR today

Use your Move controllers to dice fresh produce with dual katana blades across four game modes

Picture this: A razor-sharp sword in each hand. A mysterious dojo in the background, and truckloads of fruit flying into the air, all for the sole purpose of becoming a mess-making ninja. It sounds simple. Too simple. But it works, and it’s fun, and that’s really all that matters. The game is called Fruit Ninja VR, and today I’m excited to announce that it is coming to PlayStation VR today, just in time for Christmas.

Fruit Ninja was first released on mobile devices back in 2010, a magnificent time when touchscreen devices were still new and my voluptuous beard had slightly less grey in it. Since then the game has been downloaded over one billion times and our team has continued to perfect it. We took that game and with the luxury of no real time pressure, the team went to town on perfecting this arcade game and recreating it for PlayStation VR.

Slicing fruit with your fingertips is one thing, but slicing fruit in virtual reality with PlayStation Move Motion Controllers is a whole new ball game. It doesn’t just “feel” good. It’s an amazing, visceral experience. I should know… I’ve spent more time waving my arms around like a madman than anyone else at Halfbrick!

Now, thanks to PlayStation VR, you too can enjoy this bizarre act WITHOUT the expensive grocery bill. Think about it. Why convince a friend to pelt fruit at you when you can enjoy four addictive game modes – Classic, Zen, Arcade and Survival – all from the comfort of your living room?

There are even crafty little helicopters that fire fruit and bombs at you to keep you on your toes. Good luck replicating that in real life!

To wrap it up I have some spoilers to share. The team really did have the time to toy with this toy and get every detail right. You’ll discover this as you slice, skewer, juggle and flick fruit. A Fruit Ninja first has also made its way into the game, as you will be able to interact with the famous spiralling bombs by deflecting and juggling them without them exploding.

Enjoy Fruit Ninja VR.

  • hey guys been looking forward to trying this in vr :), one question i only have one move controller am i able to play it with just one???

  • Yay, now we can play old mobile games on modern consoles! What a time to be alive! :)

  • Wow! So great! Looking forward to play this… do you support PS4 Pro?

  • I downloaded FruitNinja Vr for PsVr yesterday, had quite a lot of trouble with it. The survivalmode is a lot of fun, but there is a problem with the other three modes. It is extremely boring. Sometimes it take +10 seconds before the fruit appears. The modes against the time, “slash as much fruit as you can in 60s”, only 3 blue bananas appear and, if I’m lucky, 5 more fruits. There Literally is nothing to do. This is far from the game I know and love. Other people don’t seem to have the same problems. Clearly something went wrong.
    Is this problem fixable? Is there a download available to fix this problem?

  • Hi, Thank you so much for your support! We have a fix for this and we’re just waiting for the patch to go live. In the meantime if you change your system language to English the game should function perfectly
