You can now watch Hikaru Utada perform two of Kingdom Hearts’ main tracks in virtual reality.
PlayStation VR owners can now watch Utada perform two songs that have been featured in the Kingdom Hearts series. This stage production was from the singer’s 2018 “Laughter in the Dark” tour. The two songs that Utada performs are “Hikari” (the Japanese version of “Simple and Clean”) and “Chikai” (the Japanese version of “Don’t Think Twice”). The feature was recorded from three different angles. According to the PlayStation Store, this is an “intimate performance, as if Hikaru Utada were singing only for you.” You can watch a trailer for the performance below.
Utada’s VR performance is free for PS VR owners. It will be available until December 24th of this year.
