VR Zone Shinjuku in Tokyo.
BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment Inc. will open the largest VR entertainment facility in Japan, “VR ZONE SHINJUKU”, in Shinjuku Kabukicho Tokyo on Friday, July 14. Building upon the success of the previous “VR ZONE Project i Can” facility, VR ZONE SHINJUKU will house over 15 activities including the following new VR activities featuring well-known IPs such as:
Dragon Ball VR “Master the Kamehameha”
Evangelion VR “The Throne of Souls”
Ghost in the Shell Arise: Stealth Hounds
MARIO KART ARCADE GP VR
VR ZONE SHINJUKU will also include a wide range of new 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. Every activity is designed for guests to lose themselves in the immersive VR experience. Guests will also be able to enjoy a variety of non-VR activities, such as surviving a giant expanding balloon while in a locked cell, purchasing original souvenirs, and enjoy meals and activities in a virtually simulated resort themed dining space, making for a truly unique entertainment experience. Additionally, BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment Inc. has teamed-up with the popular digital art group NAKED to develop projection mapping installations within and outside of the facility. The exterior will feature a projection of PAC-MAN among other images, while the inside will feature a ‘Centre Tree’ to be used as the interface for the facility which will allow guests to interact with the building itself through touch.
