SPACES Partners with SEGA Joypolis To Open New VR Centre at Shibuya Crossing

The number of location-based virtual reality (VR) centres continues to grow all over the world. SPACES Attractions was spun out of the famous Dreamworks Animation studio and has become a company specialising in multiplayer VR experiences that feature known Hollywood and videogame brands. The company have now teamed up with SEGA Joypolis to bring the VR attraction Terminator Salvation: Fight for the Future to Shibuya in Tokyo.

SPACES will bring its four-persona VR experience to Asia on three experience stages, complete with 4D effects, SPACES Faces 3D facial scanning along with a highlight video reel that can be shared on social media. Visitors to the VR centre will be able to be immersed in free roam VR based around the well-known Terminator franchise.

“Guests that visit the brand new JOYPOLIS VR location in Shibuya will transform into a Terminator and see their friends faces INSIDE our extended reality (XR) experience, it’s like nothing else.” Says Shiraz Akmal, Chief Executive Officer and co-founder of SPACES. “SPACES attractions are truly global and appeal to audiences around the world. We are honored to bring our high-quality experiences to guests in Tokyo—our first overseas location—with heart-pounding, interactive adventure that you can enjoy with your friends and family.”

Terminator Salvation: Fight for the Future will be opening at the busy tourist area of Shibuya Crossing at CA SEGA Joypolis, one of the most famous and popular videogame attractions in Japan. SEGA Joypolis will become one of SPACES partners, joining other brands such as Cinemark, Songcheng, Skydance and others.

The new experience is due to open in Tokyo on Thursday, 25th October, 2018. Further information can be found on the SPACES website or the SEGA Joypolis website.
