Play as Dummy Head Microphone in Pretty Boy VR Game
posted on by Kim Morrissy
You can't fault VR games for their creative setups. Damihe ni nareru VR (Become a Dummy Head Microphone VR), is a new VR app that will go on sale in Japan on March 29. The setup is that two male voice actors are alone in a room together, and the player is a dummy head microphone that gets to witness all the shenanigans.
The game released a trailer on Tuesday showing off the characters and voice actors.
The game has two main stories: "The Elevator Story" and "the Ferris Wheel Story." They are written by BL author Saimon. A bonus story parallel to the main stories is written by manga artist Kaoru Curry-zawa (Kremlin).
The stories can be experienced in several different modes. The "VR mode" shows puts you inside the recording booth, where you can watch the two voice actors act out the roles. The "Illustration mode" shows footage with illustrations of the characters. The "Voice-only mode" allows you to listen to the voices without having to watch anything on screen.
Kenji Nojima (Hikaru from The Super Dimension Fortress Macross, Tuxedo Mask from Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon Crystal) and Hirofumi Nojima (Kitamura from Toradora!, Hattori from Bakuman.) will voice the Elevator Story. Kenjiro Tsuda (Kaiba in Yu-Gi-Oh!, Hannes from Attack on Titan) and Tsubasa Yonaga (Nagisa from Free! - Iwatobi Swim Club, Sangaku Manami from Yowamushi Pedal) will voice the Ferris Wheel Story. Tomo Kurahashi drew the key visuals and illustrations of the characters for each story mode.
The game will be available for both smartphones and Playstation VR. Pre-orders opened on Wednesday from Animate and Sony Music Shop.
