Ghost in the Shell

Enter the virtual world of Ghost in the Shell with the VR Diver app

7:00 PM on 03.18.2017 // Red Veron

Not the new movie, but based on ARISE

Virtual Reality was pretty hot when the first Ghost in the Shell film in 1995 came out (but died shortly after). VR suddenly came back to life in recent years just in time for that new Hollywood adaptation of Ghost in the Shell. Now you can enter the world of the recent ARISE version of Ghost in the Shell with the new Virtual Reality Diver from Production IG.

The iOS and Android app contains a 15 minute 360 video (Warning: Contains Nudity) with a story featuring the Ghost in the Shell ARISE characters, judging from the cast list and that this incarnation of the Major looks like the ARISE version. The app right now is only available in Japanese language but will receive an english dub featuring the cast from the ARISE series in June 2017.

This new VR app is free but the VR video inside costs $3.99 and works on compatible headsets such as Samsung Gear VR and even Google's YouTube VR which includes Cardboard. It will be available on other VR platforms such as the PlayStation VR and Oculus VR in the future.

Check out the videos below (Warning: Contains Nudity), which includes a 360 video preview for those with Gear VR and Cardboard VR sets.

Red likes a lot of things from Japan and wants to share more about it with the world. He even likes the bad anime. Sometimes. As long as it doesn't have big boobs. Maybe. more   |   staff directory
