In an announcement made to the PlayStation Blog, developer Gemdrops stated that in early 2023, they would release Kizuna AI: Touch The Beat! for the PlayStation 5 and PlayStation 4 with a new “Non-VR Mode” and support for PlayStation VR and PlayStation VR2 devices. On October 12, 2020, Kizuna AI: Touch The Beat! was released as a VR-exclusive title for Quest devices.
Kizuna AI: Touch The Beat!, available for the PlayStation 5 and PlayStation 4, will be playable at the Happinet booth at Tokyo Game Show 2022, which takes place from September 15-18, 2022, at Makuhari Messe in Chiba, Japan.
What is The Kizuna AI game, Touch the Beat!?
It is artificial intelligence (AI) rhythm game where you can compete with Kizuna. New features, including a “Non-VR Mode” that allows players to participate without a VR headset, expand upon what was already accessible in the original Meta Quest.
The use of controller inputs breathes new life into the game and provides rhythm games a fresh sensation. Naturally, augmented and virtual reality gear are supported. In addition to the standard method of playing rhythm games in a VR setting, the game also has a unique “View Mode” that allows for a different experience entirely.
This grants you complete freedom of movement across each level’s environment. You can “meet Kizuna AI within the virtual space” if you play this game.
PlayStation VR and PlayStation VR2 compatible modes
The game may be played on VR headsets (it can be played without a virtual reality device too). PlayStation VR2 is scheduled for release in the first few months of 2023, and the PlayStation 5 version will be compatible with it. The game will feel more like a simple thing with this added feature.
The PlayStation Move motion controller and the PlayStation VR headset are required for VR gameplay on the PlayStation 4 version. The 2022 Tokyo Game Show You may try out a demo of the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5* versions at the Happinet booth.
It is also worth noting that on September 18 at 13:30 JST, there will be a special event called “Kizuna AI: Touch the Beat! New Info & #kzn(Kizuna) chan Mini Live Stage,” where some exciting announcements will be made. People who can not make it to Tokyo Game Show 2022 to try the demo should watch the live stream on YouTube or Niconico.
The playable demo is currently in beta. Images in the final retail edition for the PlayStation 5 will be vastly enhanced. The rhythm game created by Kizuna AI will be available on the PlayStation 4 and 5. Earlier in 2023, Gemdrops declared that it would launch Kizuna AI: Touch the Beat! for the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5.
In October 2020, Touch the Beat! was released exclusively for Oculus Quest as a virtual reality (VR) game. Upcoming PlayStation releases will be compatible with PlayStation VR 2 and the original PlayStation VR. So that players who do not have a virtual reality headset may still experience the game, the designers will implement a “Non-VR” mode.
Since her release in November 2016, Kizuna AI has done more than any other person to spread awareness of the notion of Virtual YouTubers. Prior to July 2021, she had more than three million subscribers on YouTube; however, Hololive’s Gawr Gura eventually eclipsed her.
The VTuber has been absent from YouTube since the “hello, world 2022” live concert on February 26 of that year. #kzn, an artificial intelligence (AI) voice synthesis character similar to Vocaloid, made its debut at the same time. On September 18, 2022, the final day of the Tokyo Game Show, #kzn will host a short live performance.
At the party, Gemdrops will provide further information regarding the PlayStation releases of Touch the Beat! The virtual reality game Kizuna AI: Touch the Beat! is now compatible with the Oculus Quest and Oculus Quest 2. Digital versions for PS4 and PS5 will be released in early 2023.
