This July, Square Enix is teaming up with the Huis Ten Bosch theme park in Sasebo, Nagasaki, to bring Bahamut Disco, the first VR attraction that doesn’t require the use of head-mounted displays.
The attraction will throw players into what they’re calling an intense “450-degree” video space, where they’ll need to move with the rhythm of sound and light as part of the “Body Sensation Music Attraction” that is Bahamut Disco. Together with up to four players, the attraction offers an experience that is out of this world in a dynamic space.
With this attraction not requiring a head-mounted display, Square Enix says that it’ll offer a completely new play-style for VR, and it’ll also be simple and safe enough for children to enjoy.
No further details were shared other than its basic gameplay that involves moving your body along with the music as part of a rhythmic VR attraction, but it’ll feature a Bahamut created by Square Enix in an RPG world created for the VR space.
Bahamut Disco will pre-open in Japan on July 1 and will have its grand opening on July 15, 2017 at the Huis Ten Bosch theme park in Sasebo, Nagasaki.
