This is PSVR2’s showcase title designed to really show what the headset can do.

It will also make use of the PSVR2 adaptive triggers as well as the haptics in the headset.

This Anime slash-’em-up supports co-op sword-fighting action which takes place among the clouds. Combat requires precise timing to parry and block incoming blows before delivering a deadly sword swing of your own.
Gran Turismo 7
When it comes to racing sims, it doesn’t get more iconic than the Gran Turismo series. Although it is yet to be confirmed, the game appears fully playable in VR - letting you sit in the highly detailed driving seat of your favorite car and race at breakneck speeds.
Resident Evil Village
Resident Evil Village is already playable on the PS5 but this latest free DLC lets you play the entire campaign in virtual reality. The sounds, visuals, and controls have all been overhauled to take advantage of VR, letting players perform actions like reloading weapons and wielding knives using motion controls.
Star Wars Tales from the Galaxy’s Edge - Enhanced Edition
Another port from the Quest library, this action-adventure game sees you engaging in high-adrenaline shootouts with space pirates as you complete quests across the planet Batuu. There are also mini-missions that let you play as a Jedi and collectibles to find throughout the galaxy's edge.
Moss Book 1 & Moss Book 2
Playing the mouse Quill in this adventure platforming series has to be one of my highlights as a VR gamer. Now we get to play both legendary games from the series back-to-back on the PSVR2 with more features than ever before. Both games will make use of the PSVR2’s eye tracking, improved haptics, and 4K resolution.

Take on the role of an alien species called a Prismi who has special abilities that need to be unlocked to restore Cosmonious High School.
