Effectively that is an odd one – an official, limited-time Pokemon digital theme park simply launched, and you may go to it in VR. Meet Pokemon Digital Fest.
Pokemon Digital Fest is open from at present via to August 31st and could be performed in browser, on smartphones or with a PC VR headset through SteamVR. After downloading Cluster, a Japan-made digital occasions service, you possibly can launch into the park to check out rides and minigames. The app is on-line, too, so you possibly can discover with mates. A phrase of warning, although: the whole app is in Japanese.
So, sure, it’s all a bit unusual. I booted up Pokemon Digital Fest, gave myself a Scorbunny avatar (due to course) and located myself in a foyer with big Pokeballs, holographic projections of Pikachu and Polygon, and several other doorways. Some result in minigames, like a decidedly un-Pokemon digital maze with passwords that I needed to get different gamers to principally do for me. Try our gameplay beneath.
Behind one door, although, is the park itself. It’s a colourful VR house with a large Pikachu statue within the center and some sights to go to. I stepped onto a Pokeball Ferris wheel, for instance. However that’s about all you are able to do with out clearing the opposite missions. Remedy these (simpler stated than performed in the event you don’t communicate the language) and you too can experience a commerce, go to a seaside or head to an occasions stage to bop together with a military of Pikachus.
It’s a enjoyable little expertise, if nonetheless a far cry from the complete Pokemon VR sport we’re all dreaming of. The truth is, the unofficial fan sport for SideQuest will get rather a lot nearer to that imaginative and prescient than we’ll see for some time, we suspect.
