Kowloon’s Gate VR Suzaku is an upcoming Japanese virtual reality adventure title, that is set for release exclusively for the Playstation VR. Serving as a sequel to the original Kowloon’s Gate, this title was crowd-funded successfully late last year, with development in the hand of Jetman.
The original title is set in Kowloon Walled City in Hong Kong. In that title, the demolished walled city has reemerged from the Yin realm back to the living realm of Yang. It was determined that the two parallel worlds has to be separated as soon as possible, or there will be severe consequences. The player play as a super Feng Shui Practitioner who was send to the walled city to awaken the four symbols to restore the order. It is said that in this VR game, gamer will be able to enter places and rooms that was impossible in the original title.
The game was originally planned for release this month according to the crowd fund page at Camp-Fire, but the new site indicates that the title is now scheduled for a Summer release. The new site also states that there will be a secret “VR Listening Mode”, that can be unlock after you meet certain conditions. This mode allows you to enjoy new remixed songs by the music artist of the original game Kuniaki Haijima, while you walk around in VR.
As the original game is a Japan-exclusive title, it is unlikely that this game will be released outside of Japan either.
Nevertheless, here are some early WIP videos of the game that they have released so far:
