City of Dreams Manila launches “VR Swarm Shooting Galaga Fever,” a virtual reality shooting experience as its latest VR Zone activity produced by Japan’s Bandai Namco Amusement Inc., one of the world’s leading video digital entertainment development companies. The newest activity at The Garage VR Zone, which is situated at the walkway of The Shops at the Boulevard at the upper ground, leading to The Garage VR Zone and food park is now available.
Celebrating its 38th anniversary, “Galaga” is considered a classic video game masterpiece and one of the most popular arcade video games since it was first released in the 1980s. Taking on a new and exhilarating format as “VR Swarm Shooting Galaga Fever,” the game is set to deliver an action-packed, multi-sensory, and startling hyper-realistic experience through the top-of-class VR technology of Bandai Namco group.
“We are committed to provide compelling attractions for families and friends of different generations, so that they can all come together to The Garage and share a fun, memorable, and elevated virtual reality experience with the introduction of “VR Swarm Shooting Galaga Fever” and other VR activities. It’s an honor for City of Dreams Manila to strengthen its partnership with Bandai Namco Amusement Inc. to continue to raise the standard of innovative and state of the art entertainment,” COD Manila Chief Operating Officer and Senior Vice President Kevin Benning stated.
Up to two participants can play the latest VR attraction. Players will be provided with VR goggles and a VR gun, as they play atop an elevator that will take them 150 meters into the atmosphere, where they have to shoot down as many swarming alien attackers from Galaga as they can. The battle ends if the elevator crashes down or if the players fail to evade and be hit even once by the Giant Galaga’s beam.
The Garage also features another new thrilling VR experience, the Winged Bicycle. The two VR experiences by Bandai Namco group are the latest addition to The Garage’s popular VR activities: Mario Kart Arcade GP VR, Ski Rodeo and Hospital Escape Terror.
Winged Bicycle, which can be played by up to four individuals, enables players to experience the thrill of flight through riding the pedal-powered Winged Bicycle. Players have to pedal with their legs, and fly over soaring mountain surfaces, plunge through waterfalls, and dodge rocky cliffs along the way in order to reach the floating castle within a certain time limit to win.
