During our last VR Game Roundup, there were several interesting games highlighted including a new battle royale title for virtual reality, an intriguing physics-based shooter, and Star Shaman. This week’s VR Game Roundup doesn’t have many big-name releases but there are plenty of them and sure to be some overlooked gems as a result. Headlining this week is an Oculus Quest port of the Blair Witch game, Realms of Eternity, and Ninja Legends arriving on PlayStation VR.

Realms of Eternity

Kicking off this week’s VR Game Roundup is an early access title called Realms of Eternity. It currently comes with two dojos to test your skills in. One is melee-based and you’ll be able to test your blades on bamboo. Meanwhile, the other will test your archery skills over 30 waves of enemies. Over time it will get a sandbox mode, additional weapons, and even traps you can use on foes.

Fitness Potential

The gameplay in Realms of Eternity looks quite varied due to the different types of weapons you will be using. Archery has always been a great arm workout and so are melee-based combat titles, so this will definitely give both of your arms plenty of exercise.

Ninja Legends

Arriving on the PlayStation Store this week is Ninja Legends, which has long been one of our favorite virtual reality games for fitness. Over its four difficulty modes, Ninja Legends will be able to test your reaction speed as you take on waves of ninjas. With access to melee and ranged attacks, you’ll be moving around plenty as you use the wide array of weaponry at your disposal.

Fitness Potential

Ninja Legends is a fantastic workout and it instantly becomes one of the best PSVR fitness games as a result. As noted in VR Fitness Insider’s review, it provides an intense arm workout and has plenty of replayability. While it isn’t the best title for toning your legs and core, it does have you dodging and lunging, so it’s better than nothing. It has also been given a fitness rating comparable to an elliptical by the VR Institute of Health and Exercise.

Mystical Mayhem

While it doesn’t seem to be all that spooky, Mystical Mayhem fits nicely into the release schedule since it deals with combating ghosts. Players are a streamer looking for an audience that decides to hunt ghosts in order to get popular. To do so, you will be using a variety of gear to punch and shoot the supernatural baddies coming your way.

Fitness Potential

There’s a solid amount of content in Mystical Mayhem as it includes a story mode that will introduce you to all of the game’s weapons and then an endless mode where you can really test your skills. There’s even a timed mode meant for party play that has players competing over the highest score. While it doesn’t seem to be one of the most intense fitness games, this looks perfect for younger players and those wanting a fun and casual arm workout.

Groove Gunner

Fans of rhythm games will be glad to know that they have another VR workout option in Groove Gunner. It has players shooting targets and blocking bullets that are coming their way. With a soundtrack spanning multiple genres of music and a great look, it’s one of the most promising rhythm titles in a while. There’s also a free demo available for download, so give it a go in order to see if it is up your alley.

Fitness Potential

With four different difficulty levels, Groove Gunner is a title you will be able to repeatedly go back to. Each song has been custom crafted to be a blast and there’s even a song editor for players to create their own stages (complete with their own light show). Due to the constant shooting and blocking, this will keep you active and should be a quality workout title.

Blair Witch: Oculus Quest Edition

Rounding out this week’s VR Game Roundup and releasing just in time for Halloween is Blair Witch: Oculus Quest Edition. This psychological horror title has you going through the Black Hills Forest in search of a missing child. Of course, there’s more than just a missing kid as the Blair Witch is haunting the woods and you’ll have to use your K-9 dog Bullet to get out alive.

Fitness Potential

Originally released on traditional consoles, Blair Witch is a story-driven horror game. The developer has done a good job of redesigning it for VR, and it has more interactivity and movement as a result, but don’t expect to become out of breath while playing. While it won’t be much of a workout, you can count on plenty of scares throughout. It’s a perfect release for this time of the year.
