Many times people have told me to “go to Hell” and yet I’ve never done it. Partially because I don’t have the directions, partially because I heard real life has perma death turned on. But if I ever were to go to Hell, the thing that would make me do it is most definitely a bad ass rollercoaster ride that cruises past everyone suffering through eternal hellfire and all that. But of course there’s a virtual reality (VR) experience for that!
RollerCoaster Legends is rolling onto PlayStation VR soon, and there’s a brand new trailer embedded below which was posted on the PlayStation Japan YouTube account. Despite it being a Japanese trailer you don’t have to worry too much, all of the text in the trailer is in English. Handy for us, but it does make you wonder how the intended audience was supposed to be able to read it.
In the trailer we see a rollercoaster powering through some mineshafts before taking us through the Temple of Poseidon, with Greek ampitheatres placed atop rock formations which have no discernible way of getting there without a rollercoaster. Clearly rollercoasters were an important mode of transportation in these ancient caverns, as evidenced by the ancient rickety tracks, but we are dubious of the structural integrity of the cavern. There are flaming rocks falling from the ceiling, after all.
Next up is The River Styx, the legendary river which the souls of the dead travel down before being trapped eternally in the afterlife. In the trailer we dive directly into the river – shockingly, no signs of dead people nor ghosts. Somewhat underwhelming.
Luckily The Palace of Hades is a bit more interesting, complete with a maze and a minotaur charging about the place – naturally. Our advice? Keep your hand to a wall – you’ll find the exit eventually…
Tartarus is next, and looks a bit more like the Hell we envisioned originally. Molten lava, rock formations bubbling away. Incredible.
You can see the full trailer below. Developer WarDucks has previously worked on Sneaky Bears, the evil teddy bear destruction game. We’ll have all of the latest information on RollerCoaster Legends as it drops, so to take your own rollercoaster ride through the mythical, make sure to keep reading VRFocus.
