Universal Studios Japan (USJ) announced that it will have Jujutsu Kaisen-themed rides and attractions for a limited time. They will appear from September 16, 2022. Attractions will focus on the theme of “curses,” though there are no details as of yet as to what they will be or involve. However, going off the precedent of previous USJ collaboration events, they will likely entail roller coasters (including a 3D ride), as well as goods and food. [Thanks, Famitsu!]
Universal Studios Japan worked with multiple anime and video game franchises in the past. Usually, these events feature roller coasters or special restaurants. Previous USJ collaborations include ones with Hunter x Hunter and One Piece Film Red. Aside from more “conventional” roller coasters, USJ also provides 3D rides. These place guests in a roller coaster simulator that will move and shake in accordance to the action playing on the 3D screen. More information on the other rides and events that will go on during the Jujutsu Kaisen collaboration will appear in the future.
Jujutsu Kaisen is a Weekly Shonen Jump anime and manga series. It follows the story of Yuji Itadori, who becomes the host of a powerful curse named Ryomen Sukuna in order to protect his friends. Yuji then joins the Tokyo Prefectural Jujutsu High School to train and become a sorcerer so that he can avoid an execution, as well as help others against Cursed Spirits.
The Jujutsu Kaisen collaboration at USJ will start in September 16, 2022, with more information appearing in the near future. Jujutsu Kaisen is available for streaming via services such as Crunchyroll.
