Spice & Wolf, the light novel and anime series revolving around the journey of Kraft Lawrence and the “Wise Wolf” Holo, is getting a VR game written by the original author Isuna Hasekura.
The game will be made for VIVE, Rift, and other VR devices, and casts voice actors Jun Fukuyama as Lawrence, and Ami Koshimizu as Holo, same as the anime. The game currently has a 2019 release date.
Team Spicy Tails has also confirmed that there will also be a movie version of the game for Windows PCs, and that there will be subtitle options. They also hope they can bring the game to PlayStation VR and Oculus Go.
