Comment from Ryozo Tsujimoto, Producer of the "Monster Hunter" series
We have been collaborating with Universal Studios Japan on various projects since 2011, and for "Monster Hunter World: Iceborn XR WALK", we have supervised the creation of the first VR world for "Monster Hunter", paying close attention to every detail of the images. We have supervised the "Monster Hunter World: Ice Bone XR Walk" with great care and attention to detail.
The test experience of the attraction made us feel as if we had truly jumped into the world of the game.
In particular, one of the highlights of the attraction, the scene where you are actually hunting a monster, was a "I'm facing that Yverkana! I was moved by the ultra-realistic "hunting" that I experienced with my whole body.
I hope that as many people as possible will experience and enjoy the "Magi-Kari World" created by this VR attraction.
