Sega arcades have been a fixture in Japan for the last 20 years, and now the company is adding a new feature that embraces the popular virtual reality craze. Club Sega's Akihabara New Centre location in Tokyo opened its first VR Arcade Arena.
The first room-scale VR experience, located on the sixth floor of the massive center, will be Mortal Blitz For Walking Attraction, a first-person shooter from Korean developer Sconek Company and designed for three players. The experience will run from eight to 15 minutes. Sega plans on adding other VR attractions at the center, although it hasn't made clear if it will bring any of its iconic IPs to the VR realm.
The VR arena opened earlier this week, and costs 1,500 yen (about $13.50) to get in.
