Today’s Immersive VR Buzz: ‘3DSen VR’ Brings Nintendo Classics to VR, Demo Now Available on Steam

This was a very interesting BUZZ that I found today and wanted to share with you.

3DSen VR (formerly known as 3DNesVR) is an emulator tool that runs Nintendo Entertainment System games in VR, letting you play the ’80s and ’90s classic titles that made the console a world-wide phenomenon.

Original Article (October 23, 2018): Created by Geod Studios and first launched on itch.io in May 2017, 3DNesVR is finally heading to Steam, with support for Oculus Rift, HTC Vive, and Windows VR headsets.

3DNesVR automatically turns NES games into a sort of ‘pop-out’ 3D version of the 2D game (not included) and lets you play it natively via SteamVR and Oculus runtime. While there are controls that let you adjust how the 3D effect renders, Geod Studios has created a few presets and tips in its 3DN Repository.

You can try it out for free now, as the demo on Steam supports a limited number of titles including (see update):

  • Super Mario Bros
  • Circus Charlie
  • Elevator Action
  • Battle City 1990
  • Donkey Kong
  • Dr. Mario
  • Kungfu
  • Legend Of Kage
  • Tetris

The full release, slated to launch on January 21st, will support what Geod calls “massive games” including both classic and modern homebrew NES ROMS.

Supported controllers include gamepad, Steam controller, and system-specific VR motion controllers.

For obvious legal reasons, 3DNesVR doesn’t provide ROMS, so you’ll have to obtain them yourself and plug them in like any other standard emulator.

If you’re looking for a decidedly more modern emulating experience, Dolphin VR does a surprisingly good job with Nintendo Wii and GameCube games, although the project seems to have been put on hold since mid-2016.

What is 360 VR Video?

360 video is a video that is recorded in all directions at the same time with multiple cameras. The videos are stitched together either internally in the camera or externally using special software.

It then forms one spherical video that is controlled by the viewer, enabling them to look up, down, right or left at their discretion.

Is 360 Video Virtual Reality?

I want you to be the judge.
