Yet another fictional work has transverse into VR. This time, “Assassination Classroom” made its VR video game debut in the form of “Assassination ClassroomVR Balloon Challenge Time“, which drops today on Steam!
Here’s a short introduction from wikipedia about Assassination Classroom:
Earth is threatened by an enormously powerful monster who destroyed 70% of the Moon with its power, permanently rending it into the shape of a crescent. The monster claims that within a year, Earth will also be destroyed by him, but he offers mankind a chance to avert this fate. In class 3-E at Kunugigaoka Junior High School, he starts working as a homeroom teacher where he teaches his students not only regular subjects, but the ways of assassination. The Japanese government promises a reward of ¥10 billion (i.e. 100 million USD) to whoever among the students succeeds in killing the monster, whom they have named “Koro-sensei” (殺せんせー?Korosensē, a pun on korosenai (殺せない, unkillable) and sensei (先生, teacher)). However, this has proven to be an almost impossible task, as not only does he have several superpowers at his disposal, including the capacity of moving at Mach 20, but he is also the best teacher they’ve ever had, helping them not only to improve their grades, but also their individual skills and perspectives for the future.
As the series goes on, the entire situation gets even more complicated as other assassins come after Koro-sensei’s life, some coveting the reward, others for personal reasons, and the students eventually learn the secrets involving him, the Moon’s destruction and his ties with their previous homeroom teacher, including the true reason why he must be killed before the end of the year term.
Well, this game take place in the Class 3-E, where Koro-sensei has put up a special assassination training session. He will releases various balloons, which explode if you do not destroy them in time. He’ll be speeding around the classroom, distracting and taunting you at the same time. Various colored balloons has got different effects, but some are actually prank balloons from your teacher.
Here’s the gameplay video of the game.
