Japanese Schoolgirl Virtual Reality Demo Summer Lesson has Some New Gameplay

Bandai Namco has revealed some new gameplay for Summer Lesson, their curious new virtual reality project for the PS4 VR peripheral, Project Morpheus.

Featured above, you can view the new gameplay trailer that shows off the various head gestures that you can perform. However, there’s only a tiny bit of new gameplay in the video – the rest is the same footage we’ve seen before. Regardless, this is wonderful to see in high definition, as there was a surprising lack of an official trailer after the game’s reveal.

Lastly, an interview with Tekken boss Katsuhiro Harada, where he talks about the origin of the project and what they’re going for in Summer Lesson. We reported on a Famitsu interview with Harada-san where he discusses similar topics, which you can read here.

Summer Lesson doesn’t really have a release date unfortunately, and I’ll be shocked if Bandai Namco decides to localize it in the west.

    「I do not know why, but I want this game to turn out like this:
    1) One day you go to your friend’s house to get some “tutoring”
    2) Stuff happens (make of this what you will)
    3) A few days later, your friend is killed
    4) Game turns out to be a murder mystery」

    I bet people will buy this only to be disappointed because it wasn’t what they thought it was.

    Can’t wait to see more. This opens up a lot of possibilities.

    I’m sure this game is far more innocent then this comment section will inevitably allude to.

    I kinda want a Morpheus just for this (see: lulz)…. though I do hope you can use alternative VR devices… might as well just use my Google Cardboard since all videos so far don’t show anything I can’t do with that.

    That would be the most bizarre and abrupt genre shift ever. I’m all for it.

    I’d give anything for them to localise this. I think this is exactly the kind of game we should be seeing on VR headsets, at least at first; “experiences” that test out the hardware but give players something they can’t experience on a traditional console. Not like those free horror games people shovel onto the Oculus Rift.
