Konami Digital Entertainment is pleased to announce the worldwide release of BEAT ARENA, a new VR band performance game featuring songs from the popular BEMANI series. The game is available now for Oculus Quest and Oculus Quest 2, and will be coming to Steam VR soon.

The new VR game puts players at the center of a band where they can choose from a variety of instruments – drums, guitar, keyboard and bass. Each instrument offers a unique, rhythmic gameplay.

CROSSOVER TIME SESSION (ASYNCHRONOUS MULTIPLAYER)

Players can form their own bands with their friends, taking advantage of the game’s asynchronous multiplayer functionality, where they can see their friends’ past performances.

CUSTOM AVATAR CUSTOMIZATIONS

Players can look their best both on and off stage with BEAT ARENA’s highly customizable original avatars that reflect unique personalities.

REPLAY MODE

Players can rewatch and share their performances with the Replay mode, which offers different angles such as “live camera”, “performer” and more options. For players who have perfected their musical performance on the instrument and want to add vocals to their music videos, BEAT ARENA offers the possibility to activate lyrics.

With the global release, ten more songs with English lyrics and instrumental titles are added, so that a total of 41 songs have to be mastered. The following is the full track listing:
