According to the legends, whoever pulls the sword from the stone will be the True King of Britain. What happens when one million people manage to successfully pull the sword from the stone? This is the issue explored in the world of Million Arthur, which is now available to players in the west for the first time.
Originally launched in Japan for HTC Vive earlier this year, where it was titled Kai-ri-Sei Million Arthur VR, Million Arthur was developed by renown RPG creators SquareEnix in collaboration with HTC Vive.
The western version has been re-titled Million Arthur VR: Character Command RPG and is a single-player campaign VR experience that features a party of four heroes who managed to pull the sword from the stone, and were originally fighting for the throne until a larger threat came along in the form of an invading force.
The new trailer for the Western version shows that the Japanese voice acting remains in-tact, but has been given English subtitles. As in the Japanese version, battles are handled in a ‘card game’ style, with users selecting attacks etc using cards. A similar system is used for levelling and upgrading characters.
The hero characters are fully customisable, with various outfits and accessories becoming available during gameplay. Players can also interact with the characters directly, such as in the video where the player is patting the head of one of the characters.
Further information can be found on the Steam Store page. The trailer video is available to view below.
