‘Dragon Ball Z VR’ in Action, Go Super Saiyan in Bandai Namco’s VR ZONE

3

There’s some weird and wild things showcasing at Bandai Namco’s VR Arcade VR Zone in Shinjuku, Tokyo. To get a better look, Japan-based YouTube channel VJump goes hands-on with Dragon Ball Z VR, giving us a peek into the 40,000 square feet, 2-floor VR arcade and showing just how awesome going Super Saiyan in VR can be.

In the video, Vjump starts out at a training sequence that allows between 2-4 players to experience it simultaneously. Led by Goku, the series’ protagonist, you then teleport to on an iconic, barren field where he executes a Kamehameha, made more immersive by an open-hand custom device using Vive Trackers. That’s when the battle begins, and you’re positioned at different intervals, using your training mates as target practice.

Bandai Namco, veterans of the arcade gaming industry from days of yore, have freshened up their image by opening dedicated VR Arcades, complete with seated motion platforms and HTC Vive virtual reality powered experiences.
