Tiger Blade‘s story casts players in the role of a deadly assassin working for the Horangi chapter of the Tiger Clans. Ordered to steal a mysterious package from a rival chapter, you are shocked to find the object of the heist is a tiger cub. Thought to be extinct for a hundred years, the mythical creature is now desired by every gang in Sewoon and they’ll stop at nothing to take it from you.
Created by Paris-based developer Ikimasho, Tiger Blade combines fast-paced sword combat and punchy gunplay to create thrilling moment-to-moment action as players slash and blast their way through enemy-filled marketplaces, docks, alleys and streets. Yann Suquet, co-founder and CEO at developer Ikimasho, explains why he wanted to bring Tiger Blade to VR:
“Korean neo-noir cinema must be my favorite film genre. I love how dark and brutal they are, both physically and psychologically, and never have a happy ending,” says Suquet. “Tiger Blade is a love letter to those movies… and I must admit, it’s also a way for me to live the fantasy of becoming a hero of one of those films. We hope you look forward to becoming a badass action hero as much as we enjoyed making Tiger Blade.”
