News: VR Zone in Odaiba gets a VOTOMS simulator

Posted on : 07-07-2016 | By : | In : News




The VR Zone event space in Odaiba will be getting some changes to its playable game lineup, with one of these being a VOTOMS battle simulator (shown above). Released on July 15th, you will have to reserve a timeslot in order to visit the event (you can do that here). Each go costs around 700 yen and the duration of each battle will be approximately 8 minutes. I already visited VR Zone earlier this year and covered it for Forbes. It was an interesting setup and made me think that Bandai Namco is experimenting with VR for the arcades here in Japan. I am guessing this VOTOMS simulator also replaces the other mecha game, Argyle Shift that was developed by Sola Digital Arts (of Shinji Aramaki fame). It seems this new VOTOMS simulator was also developed in-house, which is a shame as I had hoped that they would have given it to Yuke’s, as their PS2 game was excellent. Getting to Odaiba isn’t too tough and I tend to use the Rinkai Line and get off at Tokyo Teleport. The walk to Diver City is a few minutes and it’s also where the life-sized Gundam is currently stationed. I will be checking out this VOTOMS simulator later this month, so will report back on that accordingly.
