The game will take place in a virtual metropolis called Pegasus City. Players will create an avatar called Mine to compete in para-sports matches, such as Boccia and Para Athletics. They can also interact with other avatars, including those based on real para-athletes. The famous Japanese character Doraemon will appear as the city’s acting mayor to guide players with his secret gadgets.

The Pegasus Dream Tour was first revealed in April 2019 with a 2020 release window. We last heard of the project through Tabata’s 2020 aspirations in December 2019. The game missed its original release window, as the coronavirus pandemic postponed the 2020 Olympics and Paralympics to 2021.
