Here are some of the highlighted quotes from Famitsu‘s interview with Teruyuki Toriyama:

  • “When I worked at SIE, I produced VR titles like Astro Bot, Deracine, and What Did I Do To Deserve This, My Lord? But I thought it would take 2~3 years to make them comfortably playable on a peripheral device.”
  • “The Oculus Quest 2, which solved many problems, left an impact on me.”
  • “We plan to launch a new sword fighting VR action game in early 2022. Compared to Swords of Gargantua, it will be aimed more towards casual players.”

Swords of Gargantua is an online 4-player sword fighting VR game released by Thirdverse. It is immediately available on PlayStation VR, SteamVR, VIVE, and Oculus.

Other than the new sword fighting game, Toriyama also revealed that Thirdverse is working on another VR title that will feature floating islands, temples, and humanoid robots.

Thirdverse will release a new sword fighting action game, with Teruyuki Toriyama’s involvement, in early 2022. An overseas studio owned by the company is also working on a multiplayer VR shooter, which is slated for release in 2022.
