Next-generation VR experience to explore the Monster Hunter world in real life
When you put on the special gear for XR WALK, which features USJ’s unique technology, you will be greeted with a breathtakingly beautiful and magnificent field. With your avatar as your alter ego and your weapon of choice (big sword, sword, hammer, slash-axe, or heavy bow gun), you’ll be ready for adventure.
In the virtual reality synchronized with real-life movements, you can explore the snow and ice field as a hunter, walking around the snowfield, collecting items (materials) and traces, going through caves and sometimes climbing steep cliffs. When confronted with a huge monster, you can feel the powerful roar, the wind pressure, and the impact of the weapon in your hands, and enjoy a new kind of hunter experience never seen before.
