Yupitergrad 2: The Lost Station brings an action-adventure to VR today, arriving on Pico headsets as a timed exclusive.
The studio first announced the sequel to its 2021 swinging platformer almost a year ago, confirming a release on Quest 2 and PC VR platforms. Now, Yupitergrad 2: The Lost Station is available first on Pico Neo 3 Link and Pico 4. The Quest 2 release will follow "later this year" before reaching other platforms, including PC VR and HTC Vive XR Elite.
We enjoyed the original Yupitergrad in our review on release, stating that the mechanics offered a “clean and thrilling sensation” but the course could “frustrate as much as they entertain” at times.
At its heart, Yupitergrad’s brand of VR vaulting offers a clean and thrilling sensation, but its obstacle courses can frustrate as much as they do entertain. It’s not a game to master so much as it is to survive as you subject yourself to the mercy of its gauntlet and the finicky arsenal that helps you navigate it. Take it short strides, keep your patience and there’s fun to be had with Yupitergrad.
Yupitergrad 2: The Lost Station is available now on Pico Neo 3 Link and Pico 4.
