Since 1997, Sony has been delighting players with its cute and fun iterations of Everybody’s Golf (Minna no Golf). The latest, Everybody’s Golf VR is the first virtual reality entry in the long-running series, and is just as entertaining as its predecessors —so, strap on your PlayStation VR headset and swing that virtual club.

Everybody’s Golf VR (digital download, ¥4,212), to be released for PS4 and PSVR on June 7, is the most realistic entry in the golfing franchise. Players swing a motion-controlled PlayStation Move controller to hit the in-game ball, adding a fresh spin to the series. You will need to practice your swing — turn over your wrists too soon and the ball will veer to the side. To make the experience as accurate as possible, you can select your height and the side from which you hit (right handed or left handed) in the Play Standing mode. The game is designed specifically for the motion controls, which makes playing more realistic, but there is also sitting play mode, as well as a DualShock 4 controller option for those wanting a more traditional gaming experience. Players are also joined by a virtual caddy, who provides advice and encouragement.
