PSVR2 Will Be Playable At September’s Tokyo Game Show

PlayStation has revealed people will be able to get their first hands-on experience with the PlayStation VR2 at the Tokyo Game Show next month. Attendees will have the opportunity to play Resident Evil Village in VR by heading to the Capcom booth, and they’ll get a little something extra for doing so too.

The reveal that the PSVR2 will be shown off and available to use in public for the very first time comes via a report from the PR Times (thanks, Push Square). Players who take the new headset for a spin have been promised “ultimate immersion” as they will be afforded the chance to step into a part of Castle Dimitrescu. Yes, that does mean you will likely happen upon the Lady of said castle in VR at TGS.

As highlighted by PlayStation via its Japanese Twitter account, this will be the very first time players will have the chance to see what the PSVR2 is all about. As if being among the very first to take PlayStation’s next-gen VR gear for a spin isn’t enough, those who visit the Capcom booth and try Village in VR will also receive a clear file set adorned with elements from both Village and the upcoming Resident Evil 4 Remake.

Village and RE4 will hopefully be among a number of games available for the PSVR2 when it launches in early 2023. PlayStation is hopeful there will be at least 20 titles available when the new headset arrives, with a new installment in the Horizon series, Call Of The Mountain confirmed to be among them. Since usable PSVR2s are now confirmed to be at TGS, there’s an outside chance other booths will have playable VR demos, and perhaps Call Of The Mountain will also make an appearance.

Even though PlayStation has been discussing the PSVR2 for a while and revealing sneak peeks here and there, an indie studio jumped the gun and revealed the very first look at it in the wild two months ago. If you want to be among the first to actually hold and use PlayStation’s new VR setup, you’ll need to be at the Tokyo Game Show which takes place between September 15 and 18.
