Throwing a Kamehameha in Dragon Ball VR Looks Really Silly but a Lot of Fun
If you happen around Kabukicho in Tokyo, you can go throwing Kamehameha at the VR Zone Shinjuku by Bandai Namco.
Bandai Namco recently opened its VR Zone Shinjuku venue in Kabukicho, Tokyo (yes, it’s the red-light district that inspired Yakuza‘s Kamurocho), and among the attractions based on HTC Vive tech there is Dragon Ball VR, that puts you in the boots of a fighter from the popular anime and manga.
The game prompts you to train under Goku’s tutelage in order to learn to throw the iconic Kamehameha, and then pitches you against other players to see who can blow away the others.
It even comes with a dedicated shopping area where you can buy overpriced senzu-inspired snacks. Why not?
Today the publisher released a video showing how it all works, and the verdict probably depends on how much of a Dragon Ball fan you are, and on your sense of humor. It can either make you feel incredibly silly or incredibly badass. Possibly both.
VR Zone Shinjuku comes with a lot of different activity, some based on popular franchises like Gundam, Evangelion, Mario Kart, Armored Trooper Votoms, and more.
If you plan on visiting Tokyo, and want to try it out (if anything to buy those yummy senzu), you can consult the venue’s webpage in English.
You can check out the video below and have a laugh at all the screaming.
