You can ogle Summer Lesson's English release in April

I remember being super jazzed about the eventual release of Summer Lesson, and not just because the Tekken team's pet VR project would let me hang out with that most nonexistent of creatures: A pretty teen with no respect for personal space...

Summer Lesson to get an English edition for Asia

Last year I mentioned that Summer Lesson, a Project Morpheus tech demo cooked up by Bandai Namco's Tekken team and later expanded to a full game, looked like everything I wanted out of VR. That hasn't changed, as even after a year it's...
