Another day, another Japanese VR arcade game, which we envy so much! This time it is the latest Bandai Namco project, which seems to offer the best hits of its VR software.
Mazaria is a giant VR center that will soon open in Tosima House in Tokyo. Namco previously showed their plans for VR arcade zones that offer new experiences from their favorite franchises such as Mario and Dragon Quest. Mazaria does not seem to offer anything new, but it has most, if not all, of the company’s past games under one roof.
The arcade is divided into four sections, each of which covers different types of games. In the festival area, you can go crazy with Mario Kart VR, Taiko no Tatsujin VR (one that has cute sensible drums) and Pacman VR. Meanwhile, in the adventure zone, you can jump into the world of Dragon Quest in VR, go fishing and virtually overcome the elements with your friends in VR White water rafting.
Next comes the panic zone or, as they like to call it, the no zone. It presents terrible experiences and other games that tickle your nerves. Finally, there is the SF zone, which will show visitors a bunch of sci-fi experiences. It includes Gundam and Godzilla VR apps, as well as Galaga’s own look.
We would like to see at least some of these amazing impressions ever make it to the west, but so far only Mario Kart and several other games have done so.
