The virtual reality mode of Resident Evil Village will be available on the PS2 in February. It will be included as a free update for owners of the game.

You will be able to play the entire campaign in virtual reality. Tsuyoshi says that you will be able to feel the recoil and resistance as you interact with objects in the world.

Tsuyoshi writes that the Sense controllers allow intuitive movements like putting your arms up to guard and holding your gun out in front of you to shoot. None of that will help during the baby scene. I will warn you that this is a bad click if you want to know what I'm talking about. The main campaign is the only place where you can use Village's virtual reality mode.

The platform will get a sequel to the PS2 fireworks puzzle game, called Fantavision 202X. The new version is powered by Unreal Engine, which Sony's Takao Uehara wrote on the PlayStation blog, and I think it looks better than Village, at least.

Other launch titles include the sword-fighting game Altair Breaker and the co-op title The Tale of Onogoro. Last week, Sony released a new trailer for its flagship title, Horizon Call of the Mountain.

The PSVR2 is not cheap and only works with a PS5. If you want to experience Castle Dimitrescu in virtual reality at launch, you might want to place your order now, because Sony has recently opened up their preorders to anyone with a PS account.
