Universal Studios in Tokyo, Japan will soon be opening park attractions based on very popular Anime franchises starting December 16, 2016 until June 25, 2017. The special run event will feature four different attractions, including themes for Attack on Titan and Neon Genesis Evangelion.
Now the great thing with the whole VR revolution in the gaming industry is that this technology is now fast being implemented in other forms of new media and day to day life. In this case, Universal Studios’ “Cool Japan” would be the first to deploy both a theme park coaster-type ride called The “Evangelion XR Ride” that will feature virtual reality goggles to give patrons a 360-degree augmented reality experience. This particular ride attraction will be inside the Space Fantasy section of the park, and will be offered from January 13 to June 25. This is the third Evangelion attraction that the park has provided, after the “Evangelion the Real 4D” in 2015, and last year’s “Evangelion the Real 4D: 2.0.”
The “Shingeki no Kyojin the Real 4D 2” attraction, because Universal Cool Japan already launched an Attack on Titan The Real VR experience summer 2016, is set to feature the Colossal Titan and the Armored Titan in a 4D theater experience, and will be offered from January 13 to June 25.
If Evangelion and Attack on Titan themed virtual/augmented reality park rides aren’t enough for you, Universal Studios Japan will also offer the “Godzilla: The Real 4D” and the “Sengoku the Real at Ōsaka-jō” attractions in the same manner.
