PREVIEWS: "Daredevil," "Uncanny X-Men," & More Marvel Comics On Sale August 3, 2016
Universal Studios Japan has debuted a pair of teasers for new attractions based on Attack on Titan and Evangelion, part of its returning “Cool Japan” event.
Last year’s inaugural event, which also showcased Monster Hunter and Resident Evil, helped Osaka theme park boost attendance by about 200,000 people a month. Originally scheduled to run from Jan. 23 to May 10, the event proved so popular that it was extended through June 28.
The brief teasers spotlight “Evangelion The Real: 4D 2.0″ and “Attack on Titan The Real 2.0,” which will see the addition of a collapsing wall as well as a life-size “Clone-oid” Eren, which will join the creepily realistic statues of Levi, Mikasa and Armin. There’s no word yet as to whether the centerpiece of last year’s attraction, a 49-foot statue Eren Titan and a 46-foot female Titan, will make a return appearance.
Universal Studios Japan’s “Cool Japan” runs from Jan. 15 to June 26.
