'Neko Atsume,' the cat-collecting mobile game quickly became a hit game for mobile phones thanks to its incredibly cute cats, but 'Neko Atsume VR' has finally been released and is already charming fans and newcomers. Much like the mobile version of the game, this VR experience has players slowly collecting cats and tending to their various needs. However, the VR aspects of the game now allow players to pet and play with the cats in an incredibly immersive way.

Much like the original mobile game, Neko Atsume VR maintains its adorable cartoon art style and embraces its cell-shaded graphics. This art style translates beautifully into the VR realm as it compensates for the graphic quality often lost in using VR.

Neko Atsume VR is currently only available in Japan but videos shared online have already gone viral and have inspired fans to clamor for a North American release.
