What you need to know

  • Samurai Slaughter House has exited closed beta and is now available for Quest 2 on SideQuest.
  • The game offers players the chance to fill the shoes of a samurai and explore a Metroidvania-esque open world filled with yokai monsters and enemies.
  • The game is on sale for 35% off for a limited time and players can try it first via a free demo.

Quest 2 gamers wanting to embark on an epic quest can now try out Samurai Slaughter House for free thanks to a free demo that just launched on SideQuest. Virtual samurai warriors can explore the giant castle and accompanying mountainside areas, battle enemies, collect yokai monsters to help ensure victory, and meet plenty of NPCs along the way.

The game features Metroidvania-style gameplay where players can visit more of the world as they unlock abilities or find items to aid in their quest. The game’s stunning Kurosawa-inspired black and white visuals immediately give it a look all its own among the swath of similarly-styled VR games on the market, and it pulls off this complex look thanks to a new Oculus technology called Application Space Warp.
