Bandai Namco Entertainment Inc will be opening the largest VR entertainment facility in Japan, “VR Zone Shinjuku,” in Shinjuku Kabukicho Tokyo.
Guess what? You only need to wait for a couple more weeks as it’ll be opening on Friday, July 14. Building upon the success of its predecessor “VR ZONE Project I Can”, VR ZONE SHINJUKU will house over 15 activities including the following new VR activities utilising IPs:
- Dragon Ball VR “Master the Kamehameha”
- Evangelion VR “The Throne of Souls”
- Ghost in the Shell Arise: Stealth Hounds
- Mario Kart GP VR
VR ZONE SHINJUKU will also include a wide range of new non-IP VR activities where guests will be able to experience exploring a fantasy world on a winged bicycle, a horror-filled dinosaur survival run, and much more.
In addition, BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment Inc. has teamed up with the popular digital art group NAKED to develop projection mapping installations in and out of the facility. The exterior will feature a projection of PAC-MAN among other images, while the inside will feature a ‘Centre Tree’ posing as the interface of the facility which will allow guests to interact with the building itself through touch.
Reservations will be available from Friday, June 16, PM12:00 (JST).
