New Summer Lesson Trailer Shows that PS4’s Morpheus Can Do Lovely Graphics and Lively Characters

on November 29, 2014 1:27 AM

To celebrate an User Experience Meeting being held in Tokyo, Bandai Namco released a new trailer of Summer Lesson, the lovely “schoolgirl communication” VR simulator in development for Sony’s Project Morpheus.

The video showcases some rather fetching visuals, especially in the realm of simulating the expressions and moods of the protagonist, showing that Morpheus can handle something quite a bit more advanced than what we’ve seen in earlier demos.

Moving past the “uncanny valley” is one of the most difficult challenges for virtual reality rigs, and while the anime-like graphics definitely help, the result is definitely quite natural and pleasing to the eye.

Check the trailer out just below, alongside a video where Producer Katsuhiro Harada talks about the project and shows a few more bits of gameplay.
