Bandai Namco Entertainment Asia today announced the English localization of its first PlayStation® VR exclusive game, Summer Lesson: Hikari Miyamoto. The immersive experience will be available in early 2017 with Japanese voice over and English subtitles for PlayStation Network users in Southeast Asia.
Summer Lesson: Hikari Miyamoto allows players to interact and communicate with characters through a hyper-real VR experience.
Development began as an exploration of how Bandai Namco Entertainment can bring new, unique experiences to consumers via virtual reality technology. After announcement of the title in 2014, Summer Lesson has been used as part of tech demos for PlayStation® VR around the globe, receiving strong support from fans. Building on this positive feedback, Bandai Namco Entertainment plans to continue pushing forward the boundaries of how users can experience new realities, get closer than ever to their favorite characters and discover new ways to enjoy interactive entertainment content.
In Summer Lesson, players take on the role of a tutor, helping their student (Hikari Miyamoto) with her studies during the summer break. The story takes place over seven days and provides life-like interactions with the character as only VR can, including conversations and a variety of different situations.
Updates on the game and availability will be announced as details become available. For more information about the game, please visit the Bandai Namco Entertainment Asia official Facebook page at: https://www.facebook.com/bandainamcoent.asia/
