Sega VR

Sega VR located in Akihabara is another good find that features a first person shooter alien game called Mortal Blitz which gives you 30 minutes of in-game action. Their 2 versus 2 game links the player up using cables and their other games like Western Cowboy and Tiger Knight, requires the player to sit on the saddles in a shooter game. Their games offer variety and a fun arcade like experience. Keep in mind that you need to purchase each game that you play separately.

VirtuaLink

VirtuaLink, by the company Konica Minolta offers another unique service that allows 50 participants to share the same space! Players sit in an egg like capsule as they link into their virtual world, allowing for individual explanations and guidance, accompanied by live narration. It is located inside a breathtaking planetarium. I highly recommend going to both!
