G-rounding Inc. will debut the latest demonstration of Space Channel 5 VR: Arakata Dancing Show, which utilizes virtual reality technology, in the retro game area of Tokaigi 2018, which is being held in unison with Japan Amusement Expo 2018 at the Makuhari Messe on February 10 and 11, the company announced.
Space Channel 5 is a Sega title that first released for Dreamcast in December 1999. At Tokaigi 2018, users will be able to experience the world of Space Channel 5 in a demo version of Space Channel 5 VR: Arakata Dancing Show where you can dance with Ulala.
The demo will run on a Vive. Users will dance with Ulala to save the world from the invasion of mysterious dancing aliens known as “Morolians.” Players will take on the role of a newbie reporter at a future universe television station, decide on poses with senior reporter Ulala, and eventually dance.
G-rounding Inc. plans to exhibit the game at virtual reality-dedicated stores in Japan this spring, and release the game as a downloadable title for Vive within the fiscal year. A price has yet to be announced.
