Space Channel 5 VR: Kinda Funky News Flash just got its PlayStation VR release date.
Developer Grounding is bringing the new entry in the Space Channel 5 franchise to America on February 25. Japan, Europe, and Oceania get the game a day later on February 26.
Space Channel 5 VR: Kinda Funky News Flash will be available via the PlayStation Store as a PlayStation VR downloadable title. It will retail for $39.99. The original Space Channel 5 was released on Dreamcast back in 1999.
“Members of the original development team have returned to usher Space Channel 5 into a new decade,” the developer says. “For the first time, the player will physically join senior reporter Ulala as a rookie by dancing, posing, and grooving while holding PlayStation Move motion controllers. Returning cast members join brand new characters in new stages and music for a groovin’ good time.”
The English voice cast includes Cherami Leigh taking over the lead role as Ulala, and Tom Clarke-Hill returning to reprise his role as Jaguar. Other cast members include Cassandra Lee Morris as newcomer Kell and Greg Chun as the being terrorizing the galaxy, Glitter.
