Shonen Jump Heads to Universal Studios Japan This Summer with Three New Attractions
posted on by Eric Stimson
The always popular titles of Weekly Shonen Jump are taking over Universal Studios Japan this summer, with three of the magazine's most famous manga represented with new attractions.
This year's 20th issue of Weekly Shonen Jump is announcing on Monday that Dragon Ball Z's Goku will take on the diabolical Freeza again in a 4-D attraction, which ups the realism of a 3-D movie with special effects like wind gusts and rumbling seats. One Piece will be represented with a live stage show. Finally, Death Note fans will get to team up with L and escape Kira's nefarious scheme in a real escape game.
Universal Jump Summer will last from July 1 to September 4 (although the Death Note game begins early on May 9). Universal Studios Japan's current attractions also include a 4-D attraction (based on Neon Genesis Evangelion) and a real escape game (based on Resident Evil). The One Piece show was held in previous summers as well.
