PlayStation VR exclusive Summer Lesson will be very difficult to bring to the West, according to the game's producer.
In an interview with Dualshockers, Katsuhiro Harada was asked whether or not there's any possibility of his game getting a localization, to which he responded that if the lip sync were off the experience wouldn't feel natural enough. He also mentioned that his title wouldn't align well with a western audience's taste, as players simply interact with a digital character. Foreigners, he said, would be more inclined to play shooters or fighting games in VR.
Harada went on to mention that that London Heist by SCE London Studio perfectly exemplifies a style that many western developers would be willing to do with VR. Japanese developers, conversely, focus more on character interaction.
Given his comments, however, the possibility of Summer Lesson coming to the West isn't completely off the table. Bandai Namco would have to have some proof of the game's success before investing the time and resources needed to localize the game.
The title will launch alongside PlayStation VR in Japan on October 13.
