Odaiba’s “Tokyo Joypolis” is one of the largest indoor theme parks in Japan. It’s open until late at night and a great place to visit on rainy days. This time we will introduce two of their latest VR attractions, including VR eSports!
Kill zombies and save humanity! ZERO LATENCY VR
In the case of VR games, usually, you play while being connected to a cable – meaning you only move around inside a limited space. However, the six-player game “ZERO LATENCY VR” is different. Each player carries a backpack that sends the game data. No cables! Also, you wear a head-mounted display. Grab one of the massive guns and off you go!
On the large field where you can move around freely, you proceed in the game while communicating with the other players and the game master using a microphone. That makes the game very strategic – and of course more fun!
The new game “OUTBREAK ORIGINS-Zombie Survival episode 0-” is a story in which the player becomes a member of a special unit and defeats zombies to save humanity.
I was screaming the whole time…the zombies kept appearing in front of me… but our team managed to defeat the zombies in the end. It was a very refreshing and great gaming experience!

The popular tactical VR eSports game “TOWER TAG” from Europe in Japan
At “TOWER TAG” you have to “dye” obelisk-like towers on a virtual reality game field with the color of your team using a special gun. The rules are simple. The team who conquered the most towers wins. But wow!! It’s soooo exciting!
When you concentrate too much on conquering the towers, you will be shot by the opposing team, so you can’t win unless you move carefully but speedily. It’s a great team play game. Perfect for couples, family or a group of friends!
(Fee: Tokyo Joypolis admission fee + 800 yen per person (tax included). No prior reservation required)
Since Tokyo Joypolis is always up to date with implementing the latest VR attractions it’s a must-visit place and it will for sure become a highlight of your Japan trip!
