Psychonauts in the Rhombus of Ruin is going to be VR and makes you appear as though you have superpowers! You’re using the abilities you have in your mind to move things around, set things on fire, even possess other people’s minds in order to see what is going on from their point of view. All from the comfort of your chair without having to walk around.
Psychonauts is going to be set as a VR game with controls that will hopefully not give you motion sickness, like so many other VR games have. This game will also pick up where the Psychonauts left off, however, it is set before the events of Psychonauts 2. From what you can see in the trailer, there seems to be an option to use the controller as well. However, this may not mean that you will be able to use the controller over the VR helmet. All of the characters have had their designs updated into more High Res images. DoubleFine has even gotten the original cast to voice the characters as well.
DoubleFine has also hinted that if Psychonauts does well, the possibility of a Brütal Legend sequel could be on the table. We can only hope this game will be available to those who do not have VR in order to continue the story of Raz.
All we know about the release date is that Psychonauts in the Rhombus of Ruin is set to release in 2016. With this year being almost over we can only assume it will be out sometime in fourth quarter. Let us know what you think of this concept in the comments!
