A while back we did an article covering KOEI Tecmo’s endeavours into the VR space with their VR Sense machines, including an assortment of KOEI Tecmo IPs getting spin-offs developed specifically for this function. For visitors and residents of Japan, you would find these VR Sense machines scattered around numerous Arcades, train stations and the like.
Now on of those titles known as Horror Sense: Daruma-san go Koronda is releasing through Playstation VR via the Playstation Store in Japan on January 25th. You’ll be able to purchase the game and get your freaky horror on that takes many inspirations from the Japanese children’s game of the same name (more info here), and using the same engine behind the most recent Project Zero / Fatal Frame title.
Explore two scenarios, where you will have to explore and find hidden notes to reveal the true lore behind the horrid spirit infesting the locale. The game itself consists of being stealthy around your environment, and if caught you have to play a version of “The Daruma Doll Fell Over” game we mentioned above to escape it. If you fail this you get an instant game over so be sure to be on your toes!
You can check the game in action via the VR Sense video below:
No word if this game will be making it’s way to the West, or any English support at all for that matter, however you can purchase it for 2,138 yen via the Japanese Playstation Store from any region.
