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!

Before you play, you get a short briefing about your mission and about how to use the gun

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 VR headset is connected to the wireless device in your backpack.

The space is pretty large!

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.

This is the game screen (4 players split screen view). This might look tame…but it’s really intense!!

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!

Getting ready for the VR match!

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!

Your mission is to conquer the obelisk-like towers on the field (while staying alive)

So much fun!!

(Fee: Tokyo Joypolis admission fee + 800 yen per person (tax included). No prior reservation required)

I was born and raised in Kiel/Germany. When I was 16 I came to Japan for the first time. I fell in love with this beautiful country, so I returned after my university graduation. Since then, I have been living in Tokyo - and I don't plan to change anything about that ;-) My hobbies are taking a stroll around the city, taking photos and drinking coffee.
