Japan-based studio SpicyTails announced that Spice & Wolf VR will land on PSVR and Nintendo Labo VR this week. Furthermore, the studio says that the experience’s sequel is already in the making.

Based on the manga/anime Spice & Wolf, the studio celebrated two wildly successful crowdfunding campaigns late last year, which brought the studio a combined amount of ¥72,457,073‬ (~$680,000) through Kickstarter and Japanese funding site Campfire. Dubbed by the studio a ‘VR anime’, the experience launched on Steam (Vive, Rift) and the Oculus Store (Rift) in June.

Now, SpicyTails says in a blog announcement (Japanese) that both Nintendo Labo VR and PSVR versions are slated to launch on September 5th. You can already pre-order the Labo VR version here for $25.

There’s still no word on when the previously promised Oculus Quest version is due for release, although SpicyTails maintains it should arrive soon.

The studio also revealed that the game’s newly announced sequel, Spice & Wolf VR 2, is already in the making. Check out some of the early concept art below:

There’s nothing much else to go on for now, although SpicyTails says that more detailed information, such as stories, platforms, and release dates for the sequel will be made public at a later date.
