Godzilla is having a pretty good week, which is probably bad news for the rest of humanity. The massive monster made his big screen return at Comic-Con with a new trailer for Godzilla: King of the Monsters, and now there’s a new VR experience based on the beast on the way, too.
The footage below is taken from a new arcade experience that’s headed to Namco Bandai’s VR Zone in Osaka. It puts players in a helicopter and tasks them with taking down the legendary behemoth. Using an HTC Vive Pro, you’ll find yourself face-to-face with the creature. The VR setup also includes flight sticks, suggesting you’ll actually be able to pilot the chopper yourself.
Based on the footage, this version of the monster looks like it’s based on the recent Japanese movie, Shin-Godzilla, rather than the blockbuster Hollywood movies. That’s fine by us; he looks absolutely terrifying and the giant laser beams shooting from his back must be a sight to behold.
Sadly this is a Japan-only attraction for now though, with the news that Mario Kart VR is soon coming to the UK, there’s always hope we get our hands on this too.
