Kingdom Hearts: VR Experience announced this holiday for PSVR

Today at Tokyo Game Show Sony announced a special treat for VR fans this holiday season – Kingdom Hearts: VR Experience.

Kingdom Hearts: VR Experience looks as though it will take its cue from one of the other previous exclusive VR treats Sony has given its headset, The Last Guardian: VR Experience, in-so-far as it won’t be a full title, but rather a jaunty, shorter *experience* in which you will probably meet a few cool characters from both the Disney and Final Fantasy sides of the series, and help them perform a few simple, but fun-in-VR tasks.

One thing is for sure, judging by the trailer, you definitely get to swing a Keyblade around.

[Updated] Highwire games abandons ‘Golem’ trademark – is the PSVR title doomed?

Update: 

It would appear that Highwire Games has reached out to RoadtoVR and confirmed that this was, in fact, a slipped renewal deadline. The game is reportedly still on track for a 2018 release.

*phew*

Original Article:

It would appear the much anticipated PSVR title ‘Golem’ has hit yet another snag on its way to release – this one, however, is a doozy…

Highwire games – the development team behind the title that has been in some form of infinite limbo since the initial PSVR launch footage – has officially abandoned the trademark. Meaning the title may well be dead in the water.

Reddit user AlphaFoxWarfare posted these images earlier this morning on a thread in the R/PSVR subreddit. Pointing out also that at this time, Highwire holds no other trademarks, meaning this is unlikely to be a name or concept change.

Now of course this isn’t set in stone, many times developers may accidentally let a trademark lapse. However, with it being such a high profile title that has seemingly been living in turmoil for some time now, it is a little disconcerting.

The last time Golem was in the limelight was during PSX 2017, when we were treated to a live demo of the game. At the time it looked like things were going swimmingly. Despite some viewers having concerns over the basic VR control options, considering how far that field of VR gaming has come since this game was announced.

Of course, all of this is currently speculation coming off of one abandoned trademark, but you can’t help but feel a little grim for the future of the title.

Carbon Studio showcases a new PSVR trailer for their award winning VR title – The Wizards

At Gamescom this year, Carbon Studio showcased a brand new PSVR gameplay trailer for their title The Wizards.

The Wizards is a VR spellcaster game in which you step into the shoes of a sorcerer to defend the realm from hordes of monsters. Use motion controllers to destroy your enemies by weaving magic into lightning, fireballs, and other elemental spells. Chain combos and use different tactics against the hostile creatures. Make the game as challenging or as casual as you like with Fate Cards, and become the hero you’ve always wanted to be with powerful spells at your fingertips.

Currently we know it’s primarily controlled using the Moves with both full locomotion and teleportation options.

We look forward to hearing more from the studio in the coming months!

 

Ace Combat 7: Skies Unknown FINALLY gets an official release date!

After literal years of fan anticipation, Bandai Namco has finally released an official release date for their much-beloved flight series – Ace Combat.

That date is January 18th, 2019.

The announcement was accompanied by a new trailer, which can be seen above.

Myself and Keegan have played this at a kiosk-style play area during the Wizard World Con in St Louis this year. We can say with all honesty that despite none of us going in with much in the way of expectations, we both left pretty blown away with the experience. Of course, we played the VR mode.

It is a little far out as far as dates go, but at least it finally feels real. Are you excited to take to the skies in January next year?
