The latest issue of Famitsu has another column from Masahiro Sakurai. Rather than writing about Smash Bros., he chose to focus on another topic: virtual reality.

Sakurai discusses the scene of virtual reality in quite broad terms, like dizziness and the reluctance to wear goggles. He himseslf received an Oculus Rift DK2, and says that you can test many sample software from the Oculus website.

“It is very enjoyable,” he wrote. “Amazing! Everything that comes into view, the game world. The feeling is really different compared to a usual game.”

Sakurai also says in his piece:

VR goggles are like a TV, so it should be up to developers to freely decide what content is projected. At the same time, however, developers should properly consider how to overcome dizziness and negative factors. If games and 3D worlds are just blindly turned into VR, the future looks slim.
