It was back in March this year when Sony Interactive Entertainment announced it had over 230 developers working on content for PlayStation VR. With the headsets launch almost a couple of weeks ago those experiences have started to arrive, but there’s much more in store for gamers. One of those listed was Japanese developer Solid Sphere which has recently announced its project for the head-mounted display (HMD), Kaiji VR: Steel Beam Crossing of Despair.
As reported by Gematsu, Kaiji VR: Steel Beam Crossing of Despair is based on a Kaiji manga series by Nobuyuki Fukumoto, with the title’s gameplay focused on the ‘steel beam crossing’ parts from the “Castle of Despair” story arc.
The videogame tasks players with walking along the beam with characters from the series including Kaiji, Sahara, and Ishida. Popular scenes from the original manga are also due to be included.
Kaiji VR: Steel Beam Crossing of Despair is currently scheduled for release in Japan later this year, with no western release or price announced.
While it remains unclear if the videogame will see a wider release, heavily Japanese oriented experiences such as Hatsune Miku: VR Future Live have already made it over , so if demand is high enough other titles could follow.
VRFocus will continue its coverage of PlayStation VR content, reporting back with further announcements.
