Universal Studios Japan Reanimates Its ‘Resident Evil’ Attraction

UniversalBiohazard

Last year, Universal Studios Japan teamed up with Capcom to create an incredible theme park inspired by the world of Resident Evil. Today, Japanese gaming mag Famitsu revealed a similar project called Resident Evil The Real — a new attraction where you’re given a model gun (the Samurai Edge, I hope) and 5-10 minutes to fight for your life with limited ammunition.

Apparently, the B.O.W.s, including the Licker, look very realistic. This is thanks to legendary Japanese special effects artist Shinichi Wakasa (Godzilla), who had a hand in the creature design.

It also looks like you’ll get a sweet Umbrella Corporation lanyard, complete with a laminated ID card.

I love silly stuff like that.

      They haven’t given a solid date, other than it’ll happen this summer. Sounds like you may be there at the perfect time! TAKE ME WITH YOU.
