Pixel Ripped 1989 PSVR2 Port Update Given by Arvore

Pixel Ripped 1978 just came out and Pixel Ripped 1995 just got its first trailer for PSVR2, so that just leaves Pixel Ripped 1989, the first game in the series. Developer Arvore has talked vaguely about a Pixel Ripped 1989 PSVR2 port in the past, and now the team has given another update on it and explained some of the development-related realities behind it.

A Pixel Ripped 1989 PSVR2 port is coming later

Creative director Ana Ribeiro told PlayStation LifeStyle that the team does want to do it, but it’s still busy with Pixel Ripped 1995 and doesn’t quite have enough people for both titles.

“1995 is a much newer game,” said Ribeiro. “There’s a team dedicated to working on 1995 for PSVR2. There’s still some work to do. It’s not so easy, but 1989 is such an old project that it would be too hard to focus on doing a port now. For now, we don’t have a dedicated team working on it. I can’t even say when the date will be. We will do it, but I just can’t say we are working on it now. We are focusing on 1995, but 1989 will come later because people are asking for it.”

Ribeiro also noted that VR has gotten to the point where she has “really wanted to go back and make Pixel Ripped 1989 with better hand tracking.” 1989 is the older game in the series and has the most room to be upgraded. A previous comment on Reddit from March also explained that the developer was “studying the best way to deal with 1989” and would share any new developments.

It’s not clear when 1989 will come out, as the 1995 PSVR2 port didn’t even come with a release date.
