“Your eyes begin to adjust to the darkness, and you find yourself in a room you’ve never seen before. You go to stand but are barely able to move. You look down to find that your arms and legs are strapped to a wheelchair. As the panic begins to set in, you catch a glimpse of a figure out of the corner of your eye. A young girl, standing in the darkness, stares at you with cold eyes…”
As always with videogames, the wait can sometimes seem like a very long time indeed. So, we won’t be too judgemental if you don’t remember the last time we brought you news about Last Labyrinth, a room escape virtual reality (VR) title for PlayStation VR, Oculus Rift and HTC Vive. In fact, it was almost two years ago to the day that we brought you news of how developers Amata K.K. (back then known as Tayutau) were debuting Last Labyrinth at that year’s Tokyo Game Show. Actually, Amata K.K. have told us they were pleasantly surprised anyone from the Western media even noticed!
So, we’re equally happy to let you know similar news to that we gave you two years ago – Last Labyrinth is heading to the Tokyo Game Show. But the developers have not been idle during this time. Thanks to the response to their initial appearances, the team have gone back and remade all of the assets in the videogame to produce a much crisper and better-looking experience.
Not only that, the team have also confirmed two other pieces of news: The first is that Last Labyrinth will be receiving a simultaneous worldwide release in Spring 2019 and that along with the previously announced headsets support will also be given to the Windows Mixed Reality family of headsets.
Those attending this year’s Tokyo Game Show will be able to find Amata at booth 10-W09 in the VR/AR Area. They’ve also supplied some new screenshots – still work in progress obviously – of Last Labyrinth for you to have another look at the title. Additional information can be found on their website at http://lastlabyrinth.jp.
VRFocus will be bringing you news and updates from Tokyo Game Show throughout next week and you can expect further updates from us on Last Labyrinth in the new year.
