JETMAN has launched the PlayStation VR exclusive Kowloon’s Gate VR: Suzaku in Japan, now available via the Japanese PlayStation Store. A remake of Kowloon’s Gate, the 1997 PlayStation title, Kowloon’s Gate VR: Suzaku has been developed by the same team responsible for the original.
Kowloon’s Gate VR: Suzaku tells a dark take that takes place deep within Kowloon Walled City. An architectural complex made by more than 300 high-rise buildings, interconnected by a huge maze of dark corridors, Kowloon Walled City was probably one of the most densely populated place on earth, a city in the city located in the heart of Hong-Kong’s Kowloon District. Set in 1997, the Kowloon Walled City is just a memory of the past due to its demolition.
However, the city still exists in the Yin realm (realm of the dead), and suddenly it reemerged from there to re-take its own space in the Yang realm (the realm of the living ones). The Hong-Kong Supreme Feng Shui Council declared that if the two realms will be not divided again a very tragic era would fall, and so in order to rebalance the Yin-Yang factions, you must wander through the Kowloon Walled City in search of the four sacred symbols that could set the things right.
In Kowloon’s Gate VR: Suzaku players will interact with a plethora of bizarre characters, living through an adventure filled with cyberpunk elements combined with the Taoist traditions. For those looking for more information, here’s the original trailer revealed for Kowloon’s Gate VR: Suzaku.
In addition to launching the full title, JETMAN has also offered a demo version of Kowloon’s Gate VR: Suzaku for free. However, both releases are currently only available via the Japanese PlayStation Store, and as such those wishing to download either edition will require a Japanese PlayStation Network account.
Kowloon’s Gate VR: Suzaku came to be thanks to a successful crowdfunding campaign back in 2016. There has been no confirmation of a western release for Kowloon’s Gate VR: Suzaku, and as the original PlayStation release didn’t make it west chances are slim. However, VRFocus will keep you updated with all the latest details from JETMAN
