In case you still don’t have enough Resident Evil this autumn, like Retribution in theaters now, Damnation (September 26th), and RE6 (October 2nd), Universal Studios Japan gets a nightly Resident Evil attraction as a part of its Halloween Horror Nights.
Universal Studios Japan will be overrun with zombies. The dead will walk the Earth, and Resident Evil will come to life.
Universal Studios is once again teaming with Capcom (previously the two did a live-sized Monster Hunter attraction) for “Halloween Horror Night”. Until November 11, the theme park will turn into Resident Evil at night. So, the Terminator 2 Cyberdyne Systems building becomes the Umbrella Corporation and a walk through attraction, while the New York City area doubles as Raccoon City, thanks to some fancy projection mapping. The recently opened Biohazard Cafe and Grill in Tokyo also used 3D projection mapping effects to bring creatures to life.
Those brave enough to participate can try to navigate their way through the area—which is overrun with zombies and the T-virus!
Besides the zombies and creatures, there will even be actors playing RE characters such as Jill Valentine and Clare Redfield.
Man, what I’d give to go to Japan right now… But hey, at least we get Silent Hill during Halloween Horror Nights state-side!
Good to see that more horror games are becoming cool attractions!
