Sony Music Entertainment has released To Be a Dummy Head VR: Hotel Elevator Story and To Be a Dummy Head VR: Ferris Wheel Story for PlayStation 4 with PlayStation VR support via the Japanese PlayStation Store for 3,240 yen each.

Originally released for smartphones in March, the To Be a Dummy Head VR titles put the player in the perspective of a dummy head microphone at the recording site of a locked-room situation story told by two male voice actors.

The titles offers two modes: the live-action video “VR Mode,” which requires the use of the PlayStation VR headset, and the fully-voiced “Illustration Mode,” which features character illustrations and lets you enjoy the story on your television set.
