Today Bandai Namco hosted an event at the VR Zone Shinjuku in Kabukicho, Tokyo, to introduce the new attraction Dragon Quest VR.

The game, which is based on HTC Vive technology like all the titles playable at the VR Zone Shinjuku has players work together in parties of four, each playing different classes and standing in an areameasuring 20 x 12 meters.

Each character has different weapons and powers, and during a broadcast from the event, we got to see the first gameplay. It looks really fun, even if I suggest you lower the volume of the video below because there’s the usual massive amount of screaming going on.

If you want to see more, you can check out the first screenshots released a few days ago. If you’re in Tokyo, the game will open to the public on April 27th.

If you’re more interested in console games, Dragon Quest XI: Echoes of an Elusive Age will release in the west on PS4 and PC on September 4th. The PS4 version of the game can already be pre-ordered on Amazon. A Switch version will also come down the line, but it will take a while. In the meanwhile, you can read our recent interview with Producer Hokuto Okamoto.

Definitely a multi-platform gamer, he still holds the old dear PC nearest to his heart, while not disregarding any console on the market. RPGs (of any nationality) and MMORPGs are his daily bread, but he enjoys almost every other genre, prominently racing simulators, action and sandbox games. He is also one of the few surviving fans of the flight simulator genre on Earth.
