Theme park extends Cool Japan attractions, adds "Yōkai Watch The Real" event this summer

The official website for Eiichiro Oda's One Piece franchise revealed on Monday that Universal Studios Japan will again host a One Piece-themed live show this summer on the theme park's Waterworld stage.

Universal Studios Japan has also opened a website for the event, and is streaming a promotional video.

The "One Piece Premier Show" is again part of an overall "One Piece Premier Summer" event. In previous years, this event has included One Piece-themed food, merchandise at gifts shops, a themed restaurant, statues that visitors can pose with, monuments, water gun battles, and face-painting.

This year's show will focus on the "firery bonds between three brothers."

Universal Studios Japan will host 73 performances between July 3 and September 30.

Tickets for the show go on sale to the general public on May 25, although the official website will sell a limited number of tickets between May 15-21. Tickets cost between 1,980 yen (US$16) and 4,980 yen (about US$41) after tax, depending on seats chosen. Ticket costs are on top of normal admission prices to the park.

One Piece got its first official theme park that opened in March inside Tokyo's famous Tokyo Tower that features live events, attractions, a restaurant, and an original merchandise shop.

Universal Studios Japan is currently hosting a Cool Japan event that includes life-size statues from Attack on Titan, an "Attack on Titan The Real" exhibit, an Evangelion 4D short film, and attractions for Resident Evil and Monster Hunter. The attractions were slated to end on May 10, but they have been extended until June 28.

The park will also host a "Yōkai Watch The Real" attraction this summer.
