Japan-based developer Gemdrops has just confirmed that Laid-Back Camp -Virtual- will launch on 4 March 2021 for various platforms. Do note that this is just the first installment, Lake Motosu. The second part, Fumoto Campsite, will only be out a month later. Despite the name, the game can be enjoyed without using a virtual reality headset, so don’t worry if you don’t have one. On the other hand, if you have access to VR equipment, the game has support for various VR kits, namely PlayStation VR for PlayStation 4, Nintendo Labo Toy-Con 04: VR Kit for Switch, and Oculus Rift and HTC Vive for PC.
A brief description of the game from its Steam store page:
Experience Laid-Back Camp in 3D!
Together, Nadeshiko (you!) and Rin embark on a new camping adventure at Lake Motosu, taking pictures and trying lots of delicious food.
About the Game
Set near scenic Mt. Fuji, Nadeshiko, Rin & co. encounter a variety of unique situations. Join them for a short 3D adventure game (each version is about the length of an anime episode), where the fully voiced characters and vibrant scenery will make you feel like you’re really there!
