TOKYO, Aug 2 — Universal Studios Japan has revealed an all-new, 4D attraction set to debut at next year’s “Universal Cool Japan 2017” event, which will bring the Japanese legend of “Godzilla” to life.
The Osaka-based resort revealed yesterday, August 1 that it will debut the multi-sensory experience “Godzilla: The Real 4D” early next year (at a date to be announced later), while the Universal Cool Japan 2017 event kicks off January 13, 2017.
The attraction, based on the hit franchise, will see guests personally confront a giant, 118.5-meter-tall “Godzilla” rampaging through the city.
“Godzilla”, a giant monster originating from a series of tokusatsu films of the same name from Japan, first appeared in Ishirō Honda’s 1954 film Godzilla, but was awarded the world record in 2014 for longest continuously running film franchise.
This past weekend the movie Shin Godzilla or Godzilla Resurgence hit screens in Japan and stormed the country’s box office.
This is the first time “Godzilla” will feature in the Universal Cool Japan line-up, an annual event which delivers real-life reproductions of the worlds of top entertainment brands from a wide range of genres, including movies, manga, anime, games, music, and fashion. 2017 marks the third edition of Universal Cool Japan. — AFP-Relaxnews
