Not a lot of information is available on what attractions or limited goods will appear at USJ during the Hunter x Hunter collaboration. It is also unclear if it will feature all four of the main characters. So far, USJ revealed that Gon and Killua will show off their Nen abilities, which are Jajanken and Lightning Palm, respectively.
This is not the first time that USJ has worked with a popular anime or manga series. In mid-2021, it collaborated with another popular Weekly Shonen Jump series, Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba. Demon Slayer attractions included a VR ride and a training challenge.
Hunter x Hunter started serialization in 1998, though the author Yoshihiro Togashi has been on frequent hiatuses since 2006. The story focuses on a boy named Gon, who wants to become a licensed Hunter and search for his father. During the Exam to become a Hunter, he meets friends Killua, Kurapika, and Leorio. The 2011 remake of the anime is available on streaming services such as Netflix and Crunchyroll.
The USJ and Hunter x Hunter collaboration will run from March 4 until August 28, 2022.
