Today Tokyo-based developer UNIVRS announced a release date for its anime-based VR game Little Witch Academia: VR Broom Racing on PlayStation VR, Oculus Rift, and Steam VR.
The game will launch on July 15, following nearly a year of exclusivity for Oculus Quest.
Below you can watch a gameplay trailer.
Here’s how the developer describes Little Witch Academia: VR Broom Racing.
“Enroll as a guest student at the famous Luna Nova Witchcraft Academy, then ride a broom and soar through the skies across more than 10 tracks. Partner with fan-favorite Little Witch Academia characters such as Akko, Lotte, and Sucy, voiced in both English and Japanese by the anime’s voice actors. Race through the skies in first-person perspective with UNIVRS, Inc.’s patent-pending motion sickness reduction technology.
Unfold a new story and dive into the LWA universe in immersive virtual reality. Pair up with fellow students while purifying ghosts, and customizing brooms. Join real-world friends in online multiplayer modes and take in the splendor of the Luna Nova Witchcraft Academy.
This adaptation of Studio TRIGGER’s hit anime series features veterans of anime and gaming such as director Junichi Yamamoto, whose past positions include opening and ending movie director on The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening and storyboard artist of Batman Ninja, and sound supervisor Yukio Nagasaki (Love Live!, Arc the Lad). Along with the returning voice cast, TV series songwriter/composer Yuiko Ohara and singer YURiKA return with a new theme song “Dream Flight,” exclusive to this game.”
