Attack on Titan is getting a VR experience in Japan

VR headsets let us step into some of our most favorite and iconic fictional worlds. I can stand at the edge of High Hrothgar, peering down at the rolling landscapes of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim or fight off demons in Doom VFR. In Japan, you can pilot a Gundam or try your hand at DBZ VRDragon Quest VRMario Kart VR, and more  VR Zone at Shinjuku. You can even gun down Stormtroopers with Secrets of the Empire from The Void. Then why not more anime VR experiences? If it works for DBZ, surely it can work for others.

According to Siliconera, Sony Music Communications and Taito are collaborating on a VR attraction centered around the massively popular Attack on Titan anime series titled VR Attack on Titan: The Human Race. The experience will support up to four players as they battle against the Female Titan and is based on a chapter from the original manga.

We’re still a ways off from a real Sword Art Online VR MMO (Nostos is making some steps in the right direction), but until then the likes of Attack on Titan VR will certainly hold us over.

As you can see in the image above, the rigs are setup side-by-side with fans, and it looks a lot like Vive Pros dangling there at each station. Attack on Titan VR is getting a location test in Tokyo at Ginza Sony Park from October 19 to October 26.

Does this look like something you’d want to try? With Mario Kart VR available in London already and coming to the U.S. soon, maybe more location-based VR experiences from Japan will start making their way to the West over too.
