Sailor Moon, Final Fantasy attractions coming to Universal Studios Japan
Theme park announces its first-ever tie-up with the pair of massively popular anime, video game franchises.
The Universal Studios Japan theme park gets its name, of course, from Universal Pictures, one of the oldest and most successful film studios in Hollywood. In recent years, though, the Osaka theme park has been reaping huge benefits from the booming popularity of Japanese anime and video games.
USJ regularly salutes a handful of properties each year as part of its Universal Cool Japan project. Past collaborations have produced attractions that let guests step into the worlds of hit anime including as Neon Genesis Evangelion, Attack on Titan, and Great Detective Conan (known as Case Closed in some territories), as well as video games such as Resident Evil and Monster Hunter.
The park has just announced the lineup for the upcoming 2018 iteration of Universal Cool Japan, and we now know that Conan and Monster Hunter will be back in upgraded forms. But the real excitement comes from Universal Studios Japan’s new team-up with two of the most popular franchises ever to come out of Japan: Sailor Moon and Final Fantasy.
