Shoot Resident Evil Zombies At Universal Studios Japan

For a limited time later this year, Resident Evil is coming to life at Universal Studios Japan. And, apparently, you get to shoot zombies with the same practice guns the police and the military use.

According to Famitsu, "Resident Evil The Real" is a 5-10 minute long attraction that will be held at the park's "Palace Theater" in USJ's New York area.

Each visitor is equipped with a 700g "model gun" that only have a limited number of bullets. The goal is to shoot the zombies and other creatures — and wipe out the virus contagion.

Famitsu states that the "shooting system" is similar to what is used by police and the military for training exercises. (I'm assuming Famitsu is talking about this laser training system.)

The creatures, including the Licker (pictured), are supposed to look incredibly real, too — hence the attraction's name. Famed Japanese special effects artist Shinichi Wakasa, Godzilla's suitmaker, also worked on the enormous Tyrant creature.

Last fall, Universal Studios Japan teamed up with Capcom for a Resident Evil theme park. The results were unexpectedly awesome.

      why does the cool shit happen in everywhere else except australia not to mention cairns

        soundwave and other stuff doesnt count because it's not in cairns. at least move it up to townsville

          Cairns really gets nothing. I sympathise...

    Why does this not happen closer to home........just make a humongous video game theme park and have everything piled in to it. Who has a few hundred million lying around? :)

    @DNR Get on this when you're in Japan :P

      Might be going there slightly too late :(
