It's once again time to dance to save the galaxy, but this time it'll be in VR.
Twenty years after Sega and UGA's Space Channel 5 gave players a super fun battle against a (staged) alien invasion, and 18 years after its sequel emerged, a new entry in the Space Channel 5 series called Kinda Funky News Flash will coming to PSVR. The release is planned for later this month - February 25 to be exact - but further launches for Steam VR and Oculus Quest are in the offing.
Check out the trailer below...
Some of the original dev team have bounced back for Space Channel 5 VR: Kinda Funky News Flash, and this time you'll join senior reporter Ulala as a rookie in the tricky business of dancing, posing, and grooving while a new invasion is underway - it'll be Ulala's job to tell you what to do.
Tetsuya Mizuguchi's original game was created and aimed at "a female audience" but despite positive reviews it kinda tanked on Dreamcast. A PS2 version with a small price tag did well enough, and an updated VR instalment does seem to make a lot more sense than Space Channel 5's baffling presence on the GBA.
We assume that, um, there'll be no Michael Jackson cameo in this one.
