December 22nd sees the release of Virtual-On Force in Japan on the Xbox 360. Unlike the 360 release of its predecessor, Virtual-On: Oratorio Tangram, SEGA are bringing Force to retail on a disc. They also have some spiffy bonuses to go along with it in celebration of the series’s 15th anniversary.

Virtual-On Force will see a limited edition release at launch, titled “Memorial Box 15,” which comes with an art book and a soundtrack CD. 4Gamer tell us the art book will be generous in terms of content, coming in at 140 pages filled with promotional images, art work for the different Virtuaroids, as well as older interviews with the game’s staff.

 

The soundtrack CD will span a whopping 6 discs, including music from Cyber Troopers: Virtual-On, Virtual-On: Oratorio Tangram, Virtual-On Force and Virtual-On: Mars. You can view images of the Memorial Box at 4Gamer.

 

Additionally, if you pre-ordered the game, you’ll also have access to a “Fetish Code” that lets you make adjustments to the bust sizes of your female Virtuaroids.

    The only way to play Virtua-On is with those twin-arcade-sticks.

    I’m a sucker for artbooks. Too bad it’s only for the 360. I never understand how Sega decides which platform gets which exclusive games.

    Lol @ pre-order bonus. Only in Japan.

    • Code

      Yeah, I assume it’s a much better experience with Twin Sticks, admittedly the whole jumping/retargeting took too much away from the game for me. rar, I’ll stick with Senko >w<~!

    • NeoTechni

      I own said Twin Sticks

      For Saturn, DC, and 360

      • Yusaku_Matsuda70s

        Lucky. Must have cost a lot. Even if I had twin sticks, never had a Saturn, no longer have a DC, and currently only have a PS3. Have fun with Virtual-On Force!

      Me too, then not only could I hope Sega brought it over but I could import it if they didn’t.

    looks cool. reminds me of custom robo/gundam. gonna have to read up on the series to see if its any good thogh.

      If you’ve ever played the Battle Passport on Xenosaga, that’s pretty much Xenosaga’s version of Virtual-On.

    • Code

      Custom Robo does share a few qualities with Virtual-On, although personally I liked Custom Robo more since it’s controls and camera weren’t such a fight (I’d like to assume Twin Sticks fixes that though). My advice is if you dig Custom Robo/Gundam, have a 360, and possibly like shmup/bullet hell qualities, look up Wartech: Senko no Ronde, usually runs $10-$13 new, incredibly underrated game, the online is completely dead, but for local play it’s excellent.

    Too bad this will probably never see the light of day on western shores.

    • NeoTechni

      You never know. VOOT made it here
