Japan Studio adds four-player tower defence game to its VR collection this week
Konnichiwa. This is Nicolas Doucet from Japan Studio. How are you all doing? First things first: Japan Studio and Team ASOBI! would like to wish you all a very Happy New Year; one of happiness, harmony, well-being and a good dose of gaming.
To get off to a great start to 2017, we have a little gift for you! We added a brand new game to The Playroom VR and it is available for download from today, 1st February. Best of all, it is 100% free to all PS VR owners, so do make sure you grab it and give it a try.
The name is ‘Toy Wars’. It’s a four-player co-op tower defense-style game set in an underground base under the bedroom of our hero. You must shoot and smash waves of enemies coming at you without the VR player getting hit a single time. And as with other games in The Playroom VR, it has asynchronous gameplay – you can play Toy Wars alone in VR or with up to three extra friends helping you on the television. The player wearing the VR headset has different goals and objectives to those playing on the TV.
In Toy Wars, the main VR character is a classic action hero mounted on a swivel chair. The Dualshock 4 turns into a Gatling gun so you can shoot the soft plastic bullets like crazy.
The TV heroes are big chunky mechs, piloted by our classic VR Bots. Using the DualShock 4 controller, you can punch enemies to prevent them from reaching the VR player. Each TV hero has a unique devastating charge attack so you can find a playstyle that suits you best.
The game begins in the heroes’ underground base located under the bedroom. As the mission begins, all heroes ride a cool elevator to ascend to the surface. We took inspiration from classic Japanese anime for this.
That’s all from me! I shall leave and let you discover by yourself more about Toy Wars. All you need to do is go get it from PlayStation Store!
We hope you enjoy this new addition to The Playroom VR and hope to read your comments in the forum below! Sayonara, friends!
