One of the best gun controller-based arcade games ever, Operation Wolf, is officially getting a new sequel and VR release along with the previously revealed “flat” version which will be released at a later date.
Heading to the PlayStation VR2, Quest 2 and Pico 4 on June 22nd, Operation Wolf Returns: First Mission VR is a follow-up to the Taito side-scrolling rail shooter of yesteryear and is apparently “faithful” to the vision of the original, though with a new artistic direction and style.
Check out some media and details for the VR version below.

Microids and Virtuallyz Gaming are thrilled to announce the release of the rail shooter Operation Wolf Returns: First Mission VR June 22nd 2023 on Meta Quest 2, PlayStation VR2 and Pico 4.

In addition to arms and drug trafficking, the organization, led by the mysterious General Viper, has developed a powerful new weapon.
