One of the few videogame publishers yet to really be connected to virtual reality (VR) development is SEGA. While EA made a passing mention to the technology at its E3 show today and Ubisoft revealed it had one of its first VR videogames in Trackmania Turbo, SEGA has revealed a brand new title for Sony Computer Entertainment’s (SCE’s) Project Morpheus head-mounted display (HMD) for PlayStation 4. That title is Sega feat. Hatsune Miku Project: VR Tech Demo.
As the name suggests, this is a simple VR tech demo that features Hatsune Miku, who many will recognise as a popular Japanese cultural icon, singing songs from artist Mitchie M. It’s not clear if the title features any kind of interaction from the player, nor if it might see a full release once Project Morpheus itself has launched in the first half of 2016.
Project Morpheus saw a number of new titles announced as its E3 press conference tonight. These include new projects from the likes of Guerrilla Cambridge, which is working on RIGS and Frame, which is working on Headmaster. The kit boasts a 1080p OLED display with a 120Hz refresh rate. Official pricing or a more specific release date is yet to be announced.
VRFocus will continue to follow any and all titles for Project Morpheus, reporting back with the latest on them.
