The horror of Junji Ito is coming to the Island. Creative outfit Neighbor Metaverse Studios put together a Junji Ito Fortnite virtual attraction for Netflix. The streaming giant is using it to promote its Junji Ito Maniac: Japanese Tales of the Macabre anime series. Fans of Fortnite, Junji Ito, or both can visit the map in-game and play around in five customized maps inspired by the stories covered in the manga and anime.

Check out a trailer for the attraction below.

The Junji Ito Fortnite attraction shows players in various skins running around the customized spaces, which include a rain-blasted haunted house, a dilapidated school, and an urban scene. The maps are inspired by the short stories Hanging Balloons, Tomie’s Photography, Tombstone Town, Headless Sculpture, and Soichi’s Lapdog. The Junji Ito Maniac series also adapts the stories, though the anime does not involve Fortnite in any way, shape, or form.
