posted on by Lynzee Loveridge

Universal Studios Japan will bring back last year's Evangelion XR roller coaster this summer, giving fans another chance to survive a 360-degree Angel attack. The park will open the ride, currently skinned as a Final Fantasy attraction, starting on July 6.

The ride is said to be same as the one from the previous Cool Japan campaign. It was a big hit with riders and earned a 99% satisfaction rating. The ride's line queue will be able to play a free game "MAGI Mobile" that challenges players to defend the supercomputer from a cyber attack. Last year's Evangelion popcorn bucket, photo ops, and other goods will also be available again.
