A 5-Star in VR
Apparently unsatisfied with consuming battery power of players’ phones and the contents of their wallets, the ravening mobage devil that is Fate/Grand Order plans to further devour their whole field of vision, as well, via VR confections.
Indeed, they’ve just dropped a trailer for an expansion to Fate/Grand Order VR feat. Mash Kyrielight. Released for free last week on the Japanse PSN store, the short experience allowed players with PS VR headsets to ogle the game’s heroine (and best kouhai) Mash Kyrielight.Next year, however, promises a dose of the OG Saberface, as King Arthur herself, Artoria Pendragon – or “Altria Pendragon”, going by the rather wooly official translation – takes players on a relaxing VR vacation to what looks like…some house’s foyer? Based on the trailer below, the Altria “VR Drama” promises to be a bit more involved, with a voice performance by actress Ayako Kawasumi and a cameo from the Sword of Promised Victory, Excalibur.
As insubstantial (and skeevy) as it was, I’m kind of jazzed to see that they’re opting to expand on this experience. With luck, we’ll see VR outings with all of FGO’s most popular historical spouses, like nine-tailed fox wife Tamamo no Mae, or Cú Chulainn and history’s huggiest blue tights.
