The Pegasus Dream Tour is the first-ever Paralympic video game, and it’s designed by the acclaimed video game director behind Final Fantasy XV. In this role-playing game, you create your own avatar, equip them with adaptive devices like wheelchairs or prosthetics and then train in a variety of Paralympic sports like wheelchair basketball, track and field, soccer and boccia, and others. When you’re not competing, you can explore the massive open world of Pegasus City and interact with other players and character avatars of some of the top Paralympic athletes, including wheelchair basketball star Patrick Anderson and American track athlete Scout Basset.

“The format of The Pegasus Dream Tour, which was originally planned to be a Para-Sports RPG, was switched to that of an Avatar RPG in the wake of the global pandemic and the postponement of the Tokyo 2020 Games,” said the game’s creator and ceo of JP Games, Hajime Tabata. “This is because I felt that the Tokyo Paralympics, which would be held after the postponement, could allow humanity to overcome their divisions and help bring our spirits together. No matter what the outcome of the Tokyo 2020 Games is, it is my wish that people everywhere will come and receive the positive energy that is abundant inside Pegasus City.”

The Pegasus Dream Tour is set to release on June 24 and will be available on Google Play and the App Store. For a teaser of what the game will look like, watch the video below.
