Oculus VR, the company behind the VR headset, announced today that it’s adding support for new languages.
Languages are listed as “coming soon” in a blog post on its website.
“We have a number of exciting languages that are coming to the Oculus platform,” the blog post reads.
“Some of these are more popular than others and we’re excited to share some of the languages we’re working on now with you.”
The new languages are listed in a table on the site.
“Coming soon” is the first entry, “soon to be” is followed by “coming very soon.”
Languages like French, Portuguese, Japanese, and Chinese are listed under “coming in the near future.”
We’ve previously reported that VRFocus was hearing that VR was getting its own language translator, and we’ve been told that the headset would support English, French, German, Italian, Spanish, and Japanese as well as Portuguese and Spanish for the time being.
We’ve also heard from VRFocus that the Rift headset will be able to play audio in all languages on the headset.
The announcement comes just a few days after a new VR headset was revealed by Samsung and Microsoft, the two biggest players in the VR market.
The Samsung Gear VR is a $400 headset that has been around for just over a year, and it comes with an audio-only interface.
The new Oculus Rift headset is rumored to be about as close to a true VR headset as we can get right now.
