Another Colopl game comes to PlayStation VR.

Steel Combat

Colopl will launch Steel Combat, its futuristic fighting game in which players control robots and do battle in a full 360-degree arena setting, for PlayStation VR in Japan on February 28 for 3,990 yen, the developer announced.

The game was previously released worldwide for Oculus Rift in August 2016.

Here’s an overview of the title:

About

Steel Combat is a futuristic fighting game in which players can operate their own unique robot and do battle in an arena setting using the full 360-degree view capabilities of VR. Players will use the control pad to operate their own “Voluntary Ranger (VR)” AUV with which to do battle. Victory is only reached when the opponent’s health gauge hits 0. The key to victory lies in properly switching between the two combat modes, close range and long range modes, throughout the match. Online play allows for matches with players worldwide. There’s even a training mode to practice the controls and master combos. In addition to joining a match, up to six players can spectate on other players matches.

Features

  • 360° Arena: Matches take place in a circular 360° battlefield. Keep alert on all directions to survive!
  • Dual-mode Combat System: Switch between combat modes and execute short- and long-range moves on the fly.
  • Online Multiplayer: Connect to the internet and fight against players from around the world. Or if watching is more to your taste, spectator mode allows you to view matches between other players in real time.
  • Feature-Rich Training Mode: The training mode lets players tweak and adjust every aspect of the battle to practice moves and combos. Hone your skills to take on unseen adversaries!

An English release of the PlayStation VR version was not announced, though will likely occur as English PlayStation 4 trophies have already surfaced.
