AAA VR open-world title from Rockstar
Sidney-based developer Video Games Deluxe are working on a AAA VR game for Rockstar Games.
They are expanding their team, and have posted job listings for designers, animators, senior programmers and engine programmer. The Australian studio worked on The Getaway and L.A. Noire in the past, and recently developed the The V.R. Case Files for Rockstar.
Full conversion: Looks like Rockstar were impressed with the success of the partial L.A. Noire VR port, which brought a collection of cases from the original campaign to VR. It’s unclear whether the new project is a brand new game or a port.
New perspective: Video Games Deluxe isn’t a huge team, so it’s quite likely that they are working to bring another existing game to VR. Both Grand Theft Auto V and Red Dead Redemption 2 features first-person modes, so it’s not inconceivable that one of them could be getting the VR treatment.

Sega’s The Typing of the Dead was a version of arcade classic House of the Dead 2 that swapped light guns for keyboards and tasked you with quickly typing out words that appeared on the screen to defeat enemies.
Grindhouse-styled Wii title House of the Dead: Overkill also got the tappety-tap treatment and was released on Steam in 2013 as Typing of the Dead: Overkill, and featured the phrase Move ZIG during the Jasper boss fight, a reference to the famously badly translated Zero Wing for Mega Drive. But why no references to the even more hilariously translated House of the Dead 2?

Breath of the Wild 2 Development
Spanish localization Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild sequel is complete
Two Spanish voice actors claim that they have just finished work on the sequel to Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild.
Nintendo has kept very quiet about the inevitable sequel, but actors Marc Navarro and Nerea Alfonso – who voiced Revali and Zelda – let slip a few details in a recent podcast.
That’s a wrap: Their work on the Spanish localization is apparently complete, and they added that they were unsure about whether they should really talk about that. That suggests that most of the work on the game is done, since there will presumably not be any changes to the game content after it has been localized, and that it will release in the not-too-distant future.
Sequel silence: The sequel has no official title, although it was announced in June last year. Fingers crossed for co-op!
