PlayStation VR is getting enhanced in Japan as part of a new arcade virtual reality cabinet named VR Sense, and Koei Tecmo is one of the first publishers to sign up. It’s bringing a slew of titles to the futuristic format, which aims to invigorate all of your senses – rather than just your eyes and ears. And yes, that means there will be smells involved – and you may even get wet.
The perfect candidate, then? Well, er, Dead or Alive Xtreme 3, of course – the volleyball-esque voyeuristic spin-off. Apparently, the VR Sense adaptation will allow you to – ahem – smell the cast of the buxom young ladies, and you’ll be able to unlock swimwear each time you play. It’s unconfirmed whether you’ll be able to sniff their spoiled panties as well. You probably can.
Also coming to VR Sense from Koei Tecmo is a samurai-inspired rollercoaster game, which uses the cabinet’s “3D seat” to enhance the realism. There’s horse racing title G.I. Jockey as well, which will simulate the feeling of snow, rain, and wind. And there’s a horror game, in addition to a Dynasty Warriors adaptation – all of which are due out this August.
However, the publisher has promised that all of the games will also release on PlayStation VR for the PS4, so you won’t necessarily need to visit a VR Sense cabinet to play them. Of course, Western releases for some of these seem highly unlikely, but we wouldn’t be surprised if Dynasty Warriors made its way overseas.
Sammy.. dude..umm.. The spoiled panties was pretty lowbrow. The concept almost writes its own jokes, so there were lots of funny comments you could make with this topic without going for gross.
Whos idea was this
I love it. The designers of this series keep finding ways to make it more satisfactorily pervy for the target audience without ever kowtowing to Western moral puritanism (and without actually turning it into an eroge).
Not my sort of thing (I require actual gameplay with my games, so I'll stick with the DoA fighting games), but I hope these crazy diamonds keep on shining.
So does that mean that you will need a PSVR Smell Sensor, adding even more cost to VR? Add in the taste one too, since you will have to eat virtual food after spending so much.
Great news for foot fetishists
What a time to be alive!
@sinalefa Haha, no. The VR Sense thing is like an arcade cabinet in Japan, but it uses PlayStation VR hardware and (presumably) PS4s.
They're saying all of these games will release on standard PSVR too, but sadly no smell features in the commercial versions.
Japan never ceases to surprise me.
I'm guessing the default smell for the DoA game is Eau de Shame?
Stop it Japan , I want off this ride.
You're all bigger pervs than the devs themselves, when I read the article I was innocently thinking "beach, saltwater, suncream, poly-fibre-swimsuit-smell".
DOAX VR. System Seller.
Wow wearing a VR headset to sniff ladies knickers. What a time to be alive. This is why aliens never visit us
@MattyP Who do you think plants these weird notions into the heads of game designers?
As long as we're distracted from putting the pieces together they can continue to manipulate our attention away from their climate change terraforming plans.
Note it doesn't say what they smell of.
If you want reality then they should smell of beefburgers, off milk, and shame.
Sounds exciting, I can't wait lmao.
Never change, Japan.
@Party_Cannon You do realise that's a thing that happens ? The creeps who would want to play this and the creeps who buy soiled panties are probably often the same people. Plus it was a light hearted joke anyway, cool if you don't find it funny but certainly nothing to get worked up over.
Thats nice and all but $600 for what is currently a gimmick won't do
Aaaah, the intoxicating mix of "Hawaiian Tropic" and "Shame"
I want it now.
