Ulala's always told us to "staaaay tuned!" but it looks like the very thing we've been tuned in for is happening. The formerly Japanese-only Space Channel 5 VR: Ukiuki Viewing Show is coming westward as Space Channel 5 VR: Kinda Funky News Flash! If you're a massive Space Channel 5 fan like I am, this is probably the biggest news you'll hear all day.
Hi, #SpaceChannel5 fans!— (@SEGA_OFFICIAL) April 27, 2018
With great pleasure, we would like to announce our new Space Channel 5 VR game, "Space Channel 5 VR Kinda Funky News Flash!"
It's going to exhibit at the world's largest VR exhibition "VRLA".
See you at #110(@Grounding_Inc)!https://t.co/VeH9A6l4ke pic.twitter.com/P3D7NbDrzE
This isn't the first we've heard of Space Channel 5 VR: Ukiuki Viewing Show, but it is the first confirmation we've heard that the game will be translated into English. It'll be be available at VRLA 2018, according to an announcement tweet that started it all. Whether this means it's going to be put into mass production afterward is anyone's guess, but with all the effort going into a translation, it pretty much has to mean we're going to get the new Space Channel 5 game we deserve.
We still don't know that much about it yet, other than the fact that it'll use the HTC Vive to allow you to dance along with Ulala. It may also come to other platforms beyond Vive, with the press release listing “Game Hardware for Console Version” and "TBD" at this time. It's high time for another chance at dancing it up with Ulala and her swingin' report show, so hopefully this means more could be coming for Space Channel 5 as a series in general in the near future.
