When Summer Lesson for PlayStation VR was first introduced to the world last year, it mainly acts as a tech demo for the new virtual reality headset. Developed by the same team behind the popular fighting game series Tekken, Summer Lesson eventually became one of the launch title for PS VR when it was released in Japan last week.
It is not surprising to see that the game is only available in Japan given its language even though the original tech demo did feature an English-speaking character which somehow was not featured in the version that was released to the public. Nevertheless, PS VR owners in Malaysia (only few days left to go!) that want to check out the game will be able to do next year.
According to Bandai Namco Entertainment Asia, the game will be released through PSN in early 2017 although the exact release date has yet to be confirmed. Additionally, the Summer Lesson variant for Southeast Asia will continue to feature the original Japanese audio alongside English subtitles.
Meanwhile, it is unlikely to be a free game though since Summer Lesson costs JPY 2,980 (about RM 121) in PSN Japan. We should be able to know the pricing once Bandai Namco is ready to release the game to gamers in Southeast Asia region through PSN.
