Space Channel 5 PS VR Game Delayed to Next Spring

posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda

Game developer Grounding announced on Tuesday that it is delaying Space Channel 5 VR Kinda Funky News Flash!, its new game based on Sega's Space Channel 5 game, to spring 2020 to improve the game's quality.

The game is not a straight port of the original game, but a new version of the game with new characters, graphics, and features. It has virtual reality (VR) features compatible with the PlayStation VR.

The game does recreate the original game's characters and levels. The game has new main characters named Lou and Kee (seen right), who are rookie reporters working for Ulala. The player controls these characters in the new game. The game introduces 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.
