VR Kareshi Set for a 2021 Release, Opens Pre-registration

The virtual landscape of interactive games has opened up immensely in recent years, utilizing Augmented Reality (AR) technology for things like Pokémon GO and Dragon Quest Walk, but strictly VR games for smartphones has been relatively sparse.

To celebrate the opening of pre-registration, IVR has opened a new website, started a new campaign event, and will be having a special livestream on Thursday, March 18 at 8:00 PM (JST). Those currently known to be appearing include the following:

About VR Kareshi

Excellent presence and immersion!

A first in Japan!?
This is a first romance game that allows you to design your very own boyfriend to your liking. Appearance, hairstyle, system, skin color, overall build, clothes, etc. It uses an overwhelmingly flexible character making system to design the characters.

Unrivaled quality comparable to home consoles!
This includes not only well-designed character models, but also backgrounds, food, and motion.

Story and great voice actors!
