Production I.G Produces New Ghost in the Shell Ghost Chaser VR Attraction

8-minute ride attraction opens at Diver City Tokyo Plaza on November 2

Production I.G announced on October 23 that it is producing a new ride-like VR attraction titled Ghost in the Shell Ghost Chaser. The ride will debut at the "hexaRide" attraction area of the renewed Diver City Tokyo Plaza on November 2.

The ride attraction allows up to 12 people to ride at the same time using Q-Ride equipment with six-directional movement, and VR headsets. The ride costs 1,000 yen (about US$9) per person, and will be eight minutes long.

hexaRide describes the story:

This story is set in the Kuzan Republic. The defense minister, who will take part in a meeting of the Next-generation Weapon Coordination Council, has ordered an advance onsite inspection.
Ride participants are tasked with providing escort while securing an inspection route in Public Security Section 9, where Motoko Kusanagi serves as leader.
Riders will use the hexaRide vehicle to enter cyberspace and, serving as a Public Security Section 9 agent, join in an attack on revolutionary movement forces.

Hiroaki Higashi (stoicsense Inc.) and Production I.G, who also produced the Ghost in the Shell: Virtual Reality Driver project, are producing Ghost in the Shell Ghost Chaser. Jun'ichi Fujisaku (Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex script) wrote the script, and Kazuchika Kise (Ghost in the Shell Arise chief director) is the character designer.

hexaRide will also feature a new Attack on Titan VR attraction in the future titled Shingeki no Kyojin: Hōraku no Tō (Attack on Titan: The Collapsed Tower).
