Fellow virtual reality fans, we're in luck, as ROI Games is remaking its first-person horror game White Day: A Labyrinth Named School and porting it to Sony's PlayStation VR headset.
The game developer first launched the chilling game in Korea in 2001, and because of its fame, it was slated for a western release in 2004. However, it seems that things didn't pan out then, as the English version never materialized and its popularity started to dwindle. Things seemed unlikely to pick up at the time, but after five years, it steadily became well-known thanks to a roughly translated English variant.
White Day: A Labyrinth Named School takes place in a school setting with supernatural inhabitants. The first game is enough to make players jump out of a mix of fright and surprise, and the remake, aside from the virtual reality port, will offer a more frightful experience, including a new set of ghosts as well as scrapped ghosts that were excluded from the original game. Also, the game's graphics, sound effects and dialog will be considerably improved, where the PC edition will get the works.
The head honcho of Sony's Worldwide Studios President Shuhei Yoshida is also excited about the upcoming horror game, as seen in his tweet on Wednesday, Nov. 4.

It seems that everyone's saying a resounding "yes, please" regarding the Korean developer's announcement. This is definitely what virtual reality technology should be used for. Well, at least one of the best purposes, that is.
White Day: A Labyrinth Named School will roll out in Korea on Nov. 19, and it will be released internationally. Plus, it's not a PlayStation 4 exclusive, as it will also land on iOS, Android and PC, including English-dubbed mobile versions. English-dubbed versions will also arrive on other platforms if the title becomes popular enough.
