    Bandai Namco’s Shinjuku-based VR Zone seems to have all the luck; there’s Mario Kart in VR, Dragon Ball Z in VR, and now Ghost in the Shell is making its way to the giant VR arcade this December too.

    In a large-scale multiplayer arena, a max of 8 people can participate in a 4 vs 4 team battle where you can shoot it out using the Ghost in the Shell‘s iconic technology: optical camouflage, prosthetic body mods, cyberbrain and of course … guns.

    The game is hosted in a 20m X 12m arena with what VR Zone calls “a highly sophisticated multi-person full body tracking system.” The experience appears to use a modified HTC Vive headset with a number of positionally tracked pieces including a tracked pistol, forearm and shin guards. The system uses PhaseSpace’s tracking tech instead of HTC’s Lighthouse system, which uses visible LED-based optical tracking. Wireless walking is achieved via backpack-mounted computers.
