The VR Drop: A Smorgasbord of Gaming Delights

When it comes to virtual reality (VR) gaming October is not going to disappoint with a stunning array of titles set to be released. Next week kicks things off very nicely which is why The VR Drop has six videogames rather than five today, with PlayStation VR and Oculus Quest featuring prominently.

Puzzle Bobble 3D: Vacation Odyssey – Survios/Taito

Survios teamed up with Taito to launch Puzzle Bobble VR: Vacation Odyssey for Oculus Quest, but for the PlayStation launch there’s been a slight name change to Puzzle Bobble 3D: Vacation Odyssey. Why? Becuase the videogame will be playable in PlayStation 4, PS5 and PlayStation VR formats. Particularly useful considering there’s a PvP mode alongside the 100-level solo campaign. As this is Puzzle Bobble you should know what to expect, loads of colourful, ball popping puzzles to get your head around.
