Resident Evil x L`arc-en-ciel

When I first heard about this is about late last year during the promotion of Resident Evil 7 (game) and Resident Evil: The Final Chapter (movie). I was excited! I have seen what a VR concert looks like with Project Diva and I can’t imagine how awesome it would be to have L`arc-en-ciel singing right in front of me. This is also made to celebrate Resident Evil’s 20th anniversary.

I honestly have forgotten about this until bro showed it to me through the PS Store. It cost extra and it didn’t really come with the game. We bought it and as soon as it was ready I tried it. The PSVR was already ready for it. So I started it up and it opened with the usual settings.

It opens with a car going through a highway. It would seem that you have crashed or ran out of gas since there is a motorcycle nearby. There are 2 option, one for the music video and the other is for the character details.

In this feature (cause I can’t call it game), you are literally a passenger. As you go through the city, you and your driver come across some driver. In fear the driver stepped out hoping to run away only to be attacked by zombies. You are stuck in the car (although in real life more or less you’ll try to get away and possibly drive). Then when it looks like all hope is lost Hyde, Tetsuya, Ken and Yukihiro comes to the rescue. When all the zombies are down, the 4 men would check up on you with Hyde taking the driver seat to also serenade you with their song Don’t Be Afraid (fitting title right? lol). When you think you are finally safe, a Nemesis shows up killing everyone. Hyde tried to save you one final time by driving the car in reverse. Though successful, Hyde was captured by Nemesis and your car slids off as Nemesis kicks it off. Once again you are at the mercy of zombies. With the car surrounded (although again logically you’ll definitely try to run away), you are stuck in the car. Suddenly a police car stopped and out came Leon, shooting zombies. When most of the zombies are gone, a truck was speeding your way. Leon gestures you to get out but again you are stuck (seriously right?). The truck exploded. And out of the fire, Hyde, Tetsuya, Ken and Yukihiro walks out of the flame, reanimated as zombies.

I know I should have just posted a link to a YouTube video but I couldn’t really find a video that could give you the full experience cause obviously this is made for PSVR. But I’ll leave this link, it’s the closest that I can find. I also tried to take screenshots but like the video it was dark. In the game/video itself, it was wonderful to look at, it was detailed and I remember I’m just at awe. I remember squirming at my seat whenever the zombies were close by. I remember wanting to hug Hyde when he sat at the driver seat. It was so good to look at.

As I’ve mentioned there are 2 options, the other option basically lets you look at the 3D models of L`arc-en-ciel members in detail. You can choose whether you want them to stand in front of you or standing over your PS controller. There is also a choice to see their zombified character. There are also some sound clips from the band, where they would say, some lines from the game in English and Japanese (my favorite was the Jill sandwich line hahaha).

It was pretty entertaining, I think I watched it a couple of times (I had to stop since I was originally working on something hahaha).

At this point, I hope this is just the start not only for awesome VR games on PlayStation but also concern music videos from my favorite artists. I am seriously hoping Gackt would make one hahahaha
