VR Visual Novel ‘Tokyo Chronos’ Delayed to “Make the Game More Polished”
Sekai Project announced that the MyDearest developed VR mystery visual novel Tokyo Chronos will be delayed from it’s originally planned February release to a new release date on PC-via Steam with Oculus Go/Rift support on March 20. The PlayStation VR version has been pushed back from a May release to some time in July.
The reason for the delay is to make the game more polished before the game is released. Tokyo Chronos ran a successful Kickstarter back in July of 2018 to develop the VR visual novel in the west. The teams hope the delay will allow them to deliver the game to users with the best quality that the team can achieve.
On March 19, backers will receive a key for the game as well as the play-manual.
Tokyo Chronos focuses on immersion and storytelling via virtual reality. The title will feature suspense and drama told via a mix of visual animation and the team’s unique comic book style UI, which is inspired by both animation and the visual novel genres.
The VR immersion of the game allows players to look around while discovering new areas as they search for details and listen to the surroundings via a dynamic sound system. The studio wants the character to come alive before the player’s eyes and provide a deep experience.
