Re:Zero VR App Lets You Sleep in Rem's Lap

posted on by Amanda Whalen

The anime digital goods brand Gugenka has announced a VR smartphone app featuring the character Rem from Re:ZERO -Starting Life in Another World-, titled "Life in an Alternate World With Rem in VR." There will be two different installments, with one allowing you to sleep in Rem's lap and the second letting you sleep beside her. Both installments will include a "figure appreciation" mode in which you can view Rem in three different scenes from any angle you please.


24 new scenes featuring Rem's voice actress, Inori Minase, have been created for the app. The scenes will include events, birthdays, and a scene in which Rem will give you a nickname based on the first syllable of your name.

Gugenka is running a campaign until on March 25 on its Twitter page. If more than 5,000 people follow the company's Twitter handle @gugenka_info and post a Tweet including #リゼロVR, then one new figure VR scene will be added to the app.

Both installments of the app will be released in Japan for iOS and Android on May 26. They are both priced at 960 yen (US$8.70) and will require iOS 9.0 or Android 4.4 and later.

The Re:ZERO -Starting Life in Another World- anime aired from April to September 2016 for a total of 25 episodes. It is available for streaming on Crunchyroll.

The anime was based on Tappei Nagatsuki and Shinichirou Otsuka's light novel series, which has over one million copies in print. The novels and spin-off manga are licensed by Yen Press.
