Virtual reality (VR) games provide an immersive, three-dimensional (3D) interactive game environment to users. These games are played using standalone systems, specialized game consoles or high-end computers. They are also played using a variety of VR gaming peripherals, such as headsets, hand controllers and sensor-equipped gloves. At present, leading smartphone manufacturers in Japan are introducing headsets, controllers and gaming consoles that enable users to play VR games on smartphones.
The rising popularity of location-based entertainment (LBE) represents one of the major factors bolstering the VR gaming market growth in Japan. Apart from this, highly sophisticated laptops and personal computers (PCs) that provide detailed virtual environments and game options are gaining popularity in the country. Moreover, market players are launching specialized mice and pointing devices, steering wheels and accelerators, and VR treadmills that sense and transmit speed and distance. They are also investing in aggressive marketing campaigns to promote their products and expand their existing consumer base in the country. This is anticipated to further spur the growth of the market in the upcoming years.
