Vive Pro Is Coming To VR Zone Shinjuku With Galaga Fever

by Jamie Feltham • March 5th, 2018

HTC’s Vive Pro is on its way to one of the best-known VR arcades in the world.

As the trailer below shows, a new VR game is coming to the Japan-based arcade based on the hit shooter, Galaga. More importantly, though, the video showing off the game and its arcade pod confirms that the new Vive Pro is being used for the installations. It’s coupled with gun-shaped controllers fitted with the Vive Tracker and, from what we can see, is being tracked using SteamVR’s new base stations too.

Judging by the trailer above the game, called Gala Fever, has the 8-bit enemies from the original title invading the real world, and it’s up to you and a friend to fight them back.

It’s not clear if Vive Pro is coming to all of VR Zone Shinjuku’s offerings, which of course include the Mario Kart VR experience and a Dragonball Z tie-in too.

Vive Pro improves upon the original headset with a new 3K display, integrated audio and revised design. The headset is supposed to be launching as a base unit for existing Vive owners in the near future, with a full release featuring the new SteamVR kit taking place later in the year.

    That looks cool, like something out of the movie Pixels.

    Wake me up when HTC release proper VR controller or when they sell their deprecated Pro model at today market price and not 90’s prices. And never forget that they sell defect HMD that they wont repair or refund and that is illegal in civilized country. That is why they only sell their stand alone model in communist dictature china.

        Some dreams deserve to be beaten and degraded when they vote for waking up, mid-day naps are in favor of importing headaches.
