Back at the beginning of the month, Bandai Namco Amusement announced Dragon Quest VR, a new game for its VR Zone Shinjuku facility in Kabukicho, Tokyo.

Today, they released the first screenshots of the attraction, which you can see at the bottom of the post alongside the key art, and some decorations for the launch event at the venue.

The game, which uses HTC Vive technology takes advantage of an area of 20 x 12 meters, pitching the players in a party of four with a warrior, a monk, and a wizad in a battle to ultimately defeat Dragon Quest III‘s villain Zoma. A floating pink slime named “Homie” will serve as a guide.

The decoration for the launch events will be created by the creative agency NAKED. The game will be open to the public on April 27th, with reservations starting today.

An opening event will be held on April 25th, with Dragon Quest creator Yuji Horii in attendance. It’ll be livestreamed, and you can check out the stream below.

If you’re more interested in console games, Dragon Quest XI: Echoes of an Elusive Age will launch 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.
