In one VR arcade location in Tokyo, Capcom created a Kaiju simulator. You act as a Kaiju (a giant monster such as Godzilla or the beasts from Pacific Rim) and stomp through buildings in a 25 foot-by-25-foot space. It’s like you’re Godzilla, raging through Tokyo with touch controllers in your hand.

Your job is to save the little Kaiju.
