PlayStation Japan began streaming a Tokyo Game Show trailer for Japan Studio's Astro Bot Rescue Mission game for PlayStation VR on Monday.
The game will launch in North America on October 2, in Europe on October 3, and in Japan on October 4.
Sony Interactive Entertainment describes the game:
Astro Bot Rescue Mission is a brand new platformer, developed exclusively for use with PS VR. Take control of ASTRO the captain BOT and go on an epic VR rescue mission to save your fellow crew who are dispersed all over space.
The game takes full advantage of PS VR to invigorate the platforming genre with gameplay unfolding around you in 360 degrees. Your character reacts instantly and your jumps are ultra precise thanks to the increased depth of PS VR. While seated, moving your body lets you lean around corners to get a better view on the action and discover secret paths. You can also use your body to weave through the scenery and create a path for your character.
You will be running and jumping through city skylines, lush jungles, dark caves, and golden sandy beaches in 20 unique levels that all take advantage of PS VR. Each level features original traps and enemies, and contains 8 lost Bots for you to save.
To top it all off, six immense boss enemies stand between you and your lost crew. In VR, the scale of these juggernauts come through like never before and you feel incredibly small as they tower over you.
To guide your journey, you can rely on your trusted DualShock 4 controller which becomes the host to a bunch of cool gadgets: a hook shot, a water gun and ninja stars are few of the special weapons at your disposal. Use them in combination with your jumping and punching skills to blast off anyone standing in your way!
And if you are thirsty for more extreme platforming, the game offers 26 extra challenge levels specifically created to test your dexterity.
A new Hero is coming to PS VR, so join the Astro Bot Rescue Mission and be one of the first to experience the future of platform games!
