The Bandai Namco subsidiary MegaHouse will soon be releasing a smartphone app and VR headset that will allow you to get a taste of what it is like to be Son Goku, the main character of the massively popular anime and manga created by Akira Toriyama, Dragon Ball Z.
Set for a late June release,”BotsNew Characters VR Dragon Ball Z,” is a Capsule Corporation branded headset and controller that works in conjunction with your smartphone to take you to the action packed world of Dragon Ball Z. All you have to do is download the app onto your phone and then insert the phone into the headset. Once that’s done, you’ll be able to pick from either an AR (augmented reality) mode or a VR mode.
|You’ll be ecstatic after you shoot your first kamehameha|
In AR mode, you can shoot kamehamehas and use the headset like a scouter in order to scan people and find out their power levels. Meanwhile, in VR mode, you’ll be able to do things like, take on Frieza and practice flying.
As for the price, the MegaHouse website currently says it will cost 12,000 JPY, which is roughly 108 USD.
|This kid has a power level of 530,000!!! So… yeah, it’s over 9,000…|
The amusing promotional video below shows off many of the things you’ll be able to do with this VR app and headset. It starts off with a couple of kids pretending to be Dragon Ball Z characters engaging in a fierce ki blast battle, when all of a sudden the doorbell rings and the dad of the house very excitedly makes his way to the door. There he finds that the package containing the BotsNew Characters VR Dragon Ball Z set up that he had ordered has finally arrived and he doesn’t waste any time before trying it out.
