Déraciné: Japan Studio X FromSoftware’s PS VR Debut

A mysterious new collaboration between SIE Japan Studio and FromSoftware, which tells an emotional story in a world of frozen time.

Masaaki Yamagiwa's Avatar Posted by Producer, SIE Japan Studio

Hello, PlayStation fans. This is Masaaki Yamagiwa from Japan Studio.

Déraciné is an all new adventure game that brings Japan Studio, FromSoftware and director Hidetaka Miyazaki together for the first time since Bloodborne. The story unfolds in a secluded boarding school where six children quietly spend their days. It is into this environment that you appear, an unseen faerie existing in a world of frozen time. As the story progresses, time shifts around you, at times even throwing you into the past.

Our goal as we develop this title is to use the latest in VR technology to create a traditional adventure game or visual novel where the user explores a quiet world teeming with mysteries.

Déraciné’s most important element is the bond between the player, an unseen faerie, and the children of the boarding school. This is shown using fragmented storytelling, where the user pieces events together from scattered story elements, and a setting where time is frozen. All of this comes together in a compelling, emotional narrative.

I also have a special message from Miyazaki himself:

“This title got its start when I asked myself whether I could recreate the classic adventure game with its relaxed pace in virtual reality, giving users an entirely unique experience. SIE was interested, and I am very grateful to have them as a partner as we develop this game together.

“The result is that the concept behind the title has changed little since those initial thoughts, and Déraciné has a warm, peculiar feel to it that is completely different from anything we have done before. I’d love for as many users as possible to give it a try.”

Déraciné is scheduled to release exclusively for PlayStation VR in 2018.

PlayStation VR is not for use by children under the age of 12. PlayStation 4 system, PlayStation VR and PlayStation Camera are required to experience VR functionality.

I’d rather have a new IP or even a spiritual successor (Sekiro) than Bloodborne 2. New setting with fresh gameplay mechanics trumps sequels.
