Japanese media is no stranger to virtual reality (VR) even in its current state. Indie developer Nick Pittom, for example, has already adapted two scenes from beloved anime studio Studio Ghibli for use with the Oculus Rift VR head-mounted display (HMD). This week however sees the reveal of an official VR experience based on the popular Attack on Titan manga series in Japan. The experience is set to debut at a museum in November 2014.
As Crunchy Roll reports, the piece is to be part of an exhibit in celebration of the release of a compilation movie based on the anime adaption of the series. Little information on the experience is available right now, though it will be compatible with the Oculus Rift and be showcased at the Ueno Royal Museum in Tokyo. The exhibit will run from 28th November – 25th January 2015. Other works on display will include original art and more.
It won’t be Attack of Titan‘s first adaption into a videogame; the series has seen releases on the Nintendo 3DS and smartphones in the past. No plans to bring the experience overseas for other fans have been announced. VRFocus will continue to follow any and all applications of VR, reporting back with any further updates.
