Ever since HTC Vive and Square Enix announced a collaboration to release Kai-Ri-Sei Million Arthur VR last year, VRFocus has been closely following the developments. Then last month the videogame launched through Steam in Japan – and region locked. But there could be hope for a wider release as it’s been revealed the title will be coming to Viveport.
Currently the Mobile World Congress (MWC) is taking place in Shanghai, China, and Alvin Wang Graylin, China Regional President of HTC Vive, has tweeted an announcement from the event that Kai-Ri-Sei Million Arthur VR will see a release on the company’s own platform.

No details have been confirmed on when this may occur or whether it’ll be region locked like the Steam release. With plenty of western players always keen to get their hands on Japanese content – there are plenty of festivals focused on Japanese culture – it might no longer be a case of if but when.
Developed by Gree Co, Kai-ri-Sei Million Arthur VR has its own unique storyline and content based around the original free-to-play card battle title exclusive to HTC Vive.
As further details emerge, VRFocus will bring you the latest updates.
