Bloodborne and Demon's Souls remake game producer Teruyuki Toriyama announced on Twitter on Monday that VR game developer Thirdverse has hired him as a manager and producer of its Game Design Division.
Toriyama added in an interview with Wantedly that Thirdverse is aiming to eventually create a fully immersive VR MMORPG. He stated that he is excited about the company's vision, and he hopes to create a completely new game experience.
