Capcom Plaza Ikebukuro's “VR-X” virtual reality corner is officially shutting down on February 14th. And when it goes, so to does Rockman VR: Targeted Virtual World!!
Located on the third floor of Capcom Plaza Ikebukuro, Rockman VR began operations on July 18th, 2020. The attraction put players in the blue bomber's shoes to fend off a wave of robots, topple Block Man and thwart Dr. Wily's plans to conquer the virtual world. You can watch nearly five minutes of gameplay footage above.
At this time, there are no plans to relocate Rockman VR or the two Biohazard VR attractions to a different Capcom Plaza location. To compensate for this unfortunate news, Capcom reduced ticket prices from 1,500 yen to a mere 750 yen (roughly $7.12 US) until the 14th.
Is Rockman VR doomed to become lost media? Possibly. But there has been some speculation that Rockman VR could *eventually* see a PC port. The game is played with a retail-based HTC Vive Pro on a regular 'ol PC and... it's partially in English!
In other words, most of the pieces are in place for this virtual reality romp to come home. The ball's in Capcom's corner!
