Square Enix has announced Kai-ri-Sei Million Arthur VR, a virtual reality game set in the world of its popular Kai-ri-Sei Million Arthur game, which it plans to release for “HTC Vive and others” in Japan in spring 2017.
The “virtual reality character command RPG” will support a full 360-degree perspective, and offers flashy card battles against 3D bosses and up-close contact with the game’s popular characters. Square Enix notes that this is not a virtual reality of the Kai-ri-Sei Million Arthur game currently available on smartphones and PlayStation devices in Japan, but rather a standalone product. (Speaking of which, the PlayStation 4 and PS Vita versions launched today.)
Square Enix clarified that this is not the “pilot version” virtual reality Kai-ri-Sei Million Arthur demo that it showcased at previous events, but rather something completely new. The company also mentioned that, in order to expand the experience to more players, it is considering a multiple platform and even global release.
Kai-ri-Sei Million Arthur VR will be playable at Tokyo Game Show 2016 at the GREE and HTC booths.
