Space Channel 5 VR Kinda Funky News Flash!

It’s quite a literal nostalgia trip, but a criminally short one. I cleared the story in 42 minutes.


Updated review after I nearly 100%ed the game:

It feels quite nice to dance alongside Ulala and hear her talk to me, and also to

! high-five Jaguar and Pudding near the end. The dance moves are also abundant in variety, going way beyond just directions and “chu"s. A few example unique commands include “barrier”, “nyan”, about 10 different “pose"s, and of course “Toyota” and “Honda”. Even the same command - such as “left” - can require a different action depending on whether you are dancing or dodging enemy fire. This means you have to use both visual and acoustic memory to get everything right. The dance battles are paced pretty well, with frequent but short breaks to ensure the player never gets too tired.

this game alone makes the hundreds of dollars it takes to get VR worth it. High-5ing Ulala after all the adventures we had been on is one of the happiest happiest moments in my life playing games. the music is every bit as great as the originals but still feels fresh. the english voice acting isn’t the greatest but i wouldn’t want it any other way, and even if i did there’s an option to switch to japanese. this game is going down as one of my favorite games of all time.

edit: after coming down from the high i can recognize this doesn’t really have much for people who aren’t fans of the space channel 5 already, and i wish it was a lot longer. not perfect but for what it is it’s incredible
