Forget pretending! Especially when you can throw kamehamehas against a giant screen with nifty graphics and sound effects.

Starting this week in Shibuya, there's a Dragon Ball Xenoverse promo in Tokyo. So, yes, this is part of the game's promotion—but, it's rather cool.

As 4Gamer notes, before you participate in the event, there's a machine that measures your fighting strength.

And then, when you step on the stage, it seems, your kamehameha will correspond to your strength.

The kamehameha demo runs from 11am to 7pm and will wrap up on February 8. While the event is bound to be popular, I doubt the total number of visitors will be over nine thousand.
