Patrons of "VR Theater" at 31 Internet cafes in Kanto can experience a 15 minute immersive VR story
Beginning in May of 2016, patrons of the "Virtual Theater" service available at 31 Internet cafes in the Kanto region of Japan will be able to experience Ghost in the Shell: The Movie - Virtual Reality Diver, a 15 minute virtual reality movie that immerses its viewers in a CG-rendered, 360 degree world based on the landmark cyberpunk manga by Masamune Shirow.
Ghost in the Shell: The Movie - Virtual Reality Diver was originally intended to be released as a VR app for smart phones in December of 2015 or January of 2016, but the project grew in scale and scope such that this form of distribution was no longer feasible. Pricing for the VR experience is still to be determined.
