This new virtual reality arcade in Japan is making VR dreams come true.
VR Zone Shinjuku is now officially open in one of Tokyo's most popular wards. The facility was created by renowned game developer Bandai Namco, known for titles like "Tekken" and "Dragon Ball."
The company debuted this project in April 2016 with a smaller, trial location in Diver City that features a range of virtual reality games for attendees to try out. This new facility, however, expands upon the existing games.
With over 12 games to choose from, VR Zone offers a wide variety of titles for visitors to get accustomed to. With a fishing simulator and a downhill skiing title, the facility revitalizes plenty of familiar content in a virtual reality setting.
Some of the most eye-catching games include "Mario Kart" and "Dragon Ball," popular series that are making their virtual reality debut. Popular anime such as "Evangelion," "Gundam" and "Ghost in the Shell" have also made their way into the arcade's selection. Other facilities include an escape room, a climbing wall, and a cafe.
Reservations must be made in order to experience these games. Games are broken down into categories and a single pass gives you access to one game from each, as seen below.
The entire visit costs around $50 for single-admission. More information can be found at https://vrzone-pic.com/en/
