Godzilla Stomps Into Virtual Reality at Osaka VR Zone Arcade
posted on by Lynzee Loveridge
Bandai Namco Entertainment's Osaka VR Zone arcade is scheduled to open this fall with attractions previously seen at the Shinjuku location, as well as some brand new ones.
The arcade's official website announced it will be home to Toho's most fearsome monster. The Godzilla virtual reality attraction is unique to soon-to-open Osaka location and promises to let players experience Godzilla's overwhelming size and destruction. Players will wear VR goggles while sitting in a moving seat as they take on the role of a helicopter pilot. Up to four players can fight Godzilla at once.
The attraction will eventually head to the Shinjuku arcade, but Osaka players get to experience it first. The Osaka VR Zone will also host Evangelion VR The Tamashii no Za: Bōso (Evangelion VR The Soul's Seat: Runaway), Gundam Unicorn VR Crash: Sky High Dive, Mass Destruction VR Shooting Galaga Fever, Dragon Quest VR, Dragon Ball VR: Secret Kamehameha, CG STAR LIVE IDOLiSH7 PRISM NIGHT, and more.
There is still no news on exactly when Osaka VR Zone opens, but tickets go on sale on August 23.
