Space Channel 5 PS VR Game Launches this Fall

posted on by Alex Mateo

PlayStation's State of Play livestream presentation revealed on Tuesday that game developer Grounding's Space Channel 5 VR Kinda Funky News Flash!, a new game based on Sega's Space Channel 5 game with virtual reality (VR) features compatible with the PlayStation VR, will launch on PlayStation 4 this fall. The livestream showed a brief clip of game footage.

The game is not a port of the original game, but a new version of the game with new characters, graphics, and features.

The game is recreating the original game's characters and levels. The game will have new main characters named Lou and Kee (seen right), who are rookie reporters working for ulala. The player will control these characters in the new game. The game will introduce a new "striking pose" mechanic that can allow the characters to dodge enemy beams with a pose.

Grounding previously developed a Space Channel 5 VR experience titled Space Channel 5 VR: Ukiuki Viewing Show that debuted at Tokyo Game Show in 2016, playable with the HTC Vive device.
