In December, Lucasfilm's technology studio ILMxLAB will release Star Wars: Project Porg on the virtual reality platform. As hinted by the name, the augmented reality title will let users raise their own Porgs, the adorable creatures introduced in last year's Star Wars: The Last Jedi.

Project Porg is the second augmented reality program in development by ILMxLAB this year with a Darth Vader simulator Vader Immortal: A Star Wars VR Series - Episode I announced by Lucasfilm last month. The previously announced title is being developed for the Oculus headset and is expected to be released sometime next year.
