Dubbed Ghost in the Shell Arise: Stealth Hounds, the game straps a PC on players’ backs and outfits them with VR markers, VR googles and an arcade gun. Battles go down in a dedicated VR arena with each session lasting about thirty minutes.

The game fee is 2,800 yen ($25), which isn’t cheap, plus the 800 yen ($7) admission ticket.
