Kendo VR is currently in development for the Oculus Quest with the Unreal Engine. We chose to develop on the Oculus Quest because of the mobility and cord free experience. The Unreal allows us to easily create a visually driven experience that looks great even on the Quest. Players will experience Japanese culture through the art of Kendo. Along with swinging around a virtual bamboo sword, players will be able to learn basic moves, terms, and traditions as it relates to Kendo. The experience will also feature digital instructors to demonstrate proper stances and strikes. To add some history, players may duel historical figures when they feel confident in their skills.
The Axe One is the only peripheral device on the market to enable players to hold their shinai with two-hands. Without our peripheral players would never have this key user-experience. Using the Axe One allows for proper strikes and two-hand swings, close to swinging a real shinai.
