This is Fruit Ninja. There are many like it, but this is Halfbrick Studios'. And while it's been imitated over and over for regular apps as well as VR, there's only one original. It's headed for VR via the HTC Vive and several other platforms later this month.

Fruit Ninja VR doesn't have an exact release date beyond that estimation, but its trailer reveals some very satisfying fruit-slicing action, where you'll cut oranges, apples and watermelons to ribbons. There'll be three modes to choose from, including Classic, Arcade and Zen, with unique twists on the original game's challenges. There's even a multiplayer mode planned for the future, which could make for some very interesting (and silly) interactions.

Halfbrick is planning on bringing the game to Oculus Rift, PlayStation VR and Google Daydream eventually, but for right now Vive fans should keep an eye out for the game to make its debut on the E3 show floor next week. It could very well become one of the platform's most enjoyable diversions.
