Astro Bot Rescue Mission is nearing release on PSVR next month, and to help charge up the Astro Bot hypetrain, Sony Japan Studio released a new video detailing some of the absolutely huge bosses that you and little Astro will take on.
Developed exclusively for PSVR, Astro Bot Rescue Mission sees a reprisal of the little bots that were first introduced in The Playroom (2013) and later in The Playroom VR (2016). This time though, you and your little robot pal Astro will have to battle a host of big level bosses, which you meet after each platforming mission.
“These bosses are huge and create an amazing sense of scale in VR. Defeating them will not be a small affair though and your platforming and gadget skills will be put at use,” says Nicolas Doucet Creative Director in a Sony blogpost. “Every one of them features a unique finale with a special mention for the final boss. And you’ll have to play to find out!”
While the game was designed from the ground-up for VR, it makes use of the DualShock 4 controller, which in our hands-on at E3 earlier this summer turned out to be a delight to use.
Doucet told us at E3 that Astro Bot Rescue Mission should provide between 8-10 hours of gameplay, which is played out over a total of five worlds, with four levels per world and 26 ‘extra challenges’.
Astro Bot Rescue Mission is slated to release exclusively on PSVR on October 2nd.
