Ulala and her swingin' report show return in VR


Up, right, left, down, sit, don't, chu

Hey there space cats. Bare-midriff enthusiast and blatant Lady Miss Kier rip-off Ulala is set to make her return after years of slumming it in other character's games. At the Tokyo Game Show, attendees can check out a demo on the HTC Vive featuring Space Channel 5's top reporter in all her swingin' glory.

Titled Space Channel 5 VR: Ukiuki Viewing Show, the experience is a passive one as you'll be an audience member at one of Ulala's popular report shows. That's right, it looks like there will be no "chu, chu, chu" for you. The VR experience is being created as part of a multi-communication demonstration event. According to Gematsu, Ukiuki Viewing Show is currently in "committed development" and could come to other devices besides the Vive.

I've been waiting more than a decade for Space Channel 5 to makes its cotton-candy colored return. Since Space Channel 5: Part 2's release, there have been several occasions I thought would have been perfect for Sega to give us Part 3: when music games became all the rage, when titles like Elite Beat Agents showed how easy it was to make rhythm games for the DS, or when Nintendo, Sony, and Microsoft all had motion control devices that would literally allow you to point and shoot.

Clearly, I was wrong and now is the right moment for her return with VR. I guess I'll take it, even if I am unable to fully enjoy the technology. And if they can't get the rights to Space Michael again, something tells me Space Gaga will work just fine.
