The virtual reality visual novel Tokyo Chronos is moving on to the real world, in a way.

The developers announced a deal with Limited Run Games to offer physical PS4 copies to those who pledge for the game starting at the $60 tier.

If you pledge at the $179 tier and above, you’ll get a limited edition for either platform. This means that backers will be able to choose between PS4 and PC physical versions since the PC one was already available from the start.

You can see the cover below. Incidentally, if you want it, you’ll need to make the plunge and support the game on Kickstarter, because the physical edition will be exclusive to those who crowdfund the game.

For those unfamiliar, Tokyo Chronos is a virtual reality visual novel by studio MyDearest with a mystery story and lovely character design by LAM.

The scenario is written by Kou Segawa and the project is led by Sword Art Online Producer Miki Kazuma. Let’s just hope that dying in the game means dying only in the game.

Interestingly, the game attracted the attention and enthusiasm of veterans like Muv-Luv creator Koki Yoshimune.

At the moment, it gathered $45,132 in pledges, and it needs to pass $75,000 with fifteen days to go. If you want to help, you can do so on Kickstarter.
