This version is remastered for modern headsets, with updated graphics and audio, and the new character model from Lucky's latest adventure, New Super Lucky's Tale.

Lucky’s Tale broke ground as one of the first 3rd person perspective games in virtual reality, showing the world VR can be much more than 1st person experiences.
