New app lets you create your ideal virtual boy, with choice of three voices
If you've ever wanted to date a cute coffee shop owner who just happens to sound like Shikamaru, then boy have we got news for you.
The new app VR Kareshi will allow you to create a "dream guy" from a variety of physical options — and three voices. As part of the program, three well-known voice actors have recorded lines so that you can customize the sound and personality of your guy.
Check out all three in the trailer:
In the running to voice your perfect boy are Showtaro Morikubo (Koji Kabuto in Mazinger Z/Infinity), Chihiro Suzuki (Kuma in PriPara), and Yoshimasa Hosoya (Reiner Braun in Attack on Titan).
VR Kareshi will be available on iPhone and Android in Japan sometime in 2019.
