In line with upcoming anime film "Stand By Me Doraemon 2", Universal Studios Japan (USJ) has opened a new Doraemon ride on Aug. 4, 2020.
According to Japan Today, the ride was completed under the supervision of the film's directors, Ryuichi Yagi and Takashi Yamazaki.
An XR Ride is a high-speed rollercoaster with sudden acceleration, climbing and rolling.
Riders will also be given special goggles to wear.
The virtual reality roller coaster will feature an original story that comes before the film's plot.
Riders will travel to the future to attend Nobita and Shizuka's wedding. However, the adult Nobita steals Doraemon's time machine and runs away from the wedding.
It is then up to the rider in his Space Scooter to chase Nobita through time and space and bring him back.
The ride will only be open for a limited time until Jan. 6, 2021, Japan Times reported.
Besides the new ride, USJ has also launched Doraemon-themed food items:
Doraemon Plate Set (Nobita and Shizuka's Wedding)
Doraemon Kids Set
Doraemon Strawberry Pancake
Doraemon's Pass Loop Cake
Doraemon Frozen Beverage cup & Doraemon Dango
Doraemon merchandise related to the film will also be available.
