This looks pretty cool! An Eva 2.0-themed attraction is coming to USJ some time next year. There's a very short teaser trailer up on youtube showing off some lovely CGI clips for Eva 01, 00, Zeruel, and Unit 04 of all things!

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vaqQh8CiqRc

It looks like Unit 04 might be the audience's PoV character for this. I'm not sure what to think of those pterodactyl wings, though. :lol:
Someday I hope that we'll be reunited if that is what's destined to be. Perhaps we'll discover that elusive bible. And then we will finally be free!

^That's really cool. (Also I wounder what the name of the VA was for the announcer).

BTW I think the wings might actually be Mark 06, just looked darker than Unit-04.

Extremely cool that the 4D ride gets a sequel, must have done extremely well.

The announcer sounded kinda like Gendo or Keel to me.

Grabbed some screenshots from the HD trailer. There's a lot of motion blur in it, but I got a few nice ones:

Zeruel Attacks the Audience  SPOILER: Show

Unit 04 with Spinny Drill Arms  SPOILER: Show

The abdominal armor looks red instead of black and the head is all silver. Now Kaiyodo can release a new figure! :tongue:

Attack Fail  SPOILER: Show
Image
Image


Sexy Zeruel  SPOILER: Show
Image


So much cooler with textures applied!

The Hero Tokyo-3 Needs  SPOILER: Show

Unit 01  SPOILER: Show

That face isn't at all terrifying. Nope. :bigeyes:

I'll second Mugihito (i.e., Keel).

Eva-04 just looks like the ENT redesign that's been already used in the pachislot games.

It's just their updated Eva THE REAL 4.D ride that they've had (Similar to the RE and other franchise-based rides). I forget what the original ride 4D Universal Studio Japan ride featured, other than apparently an original story, but this looks interesting too!

You can get a pretty spiffy Unit 04 figure sporting the new paint scheme and weapons and a Nerv ID card!

To absolutely no one's surprise, the ridiculous new weaponry is designed by Ikuto Yamashita.

Mugihito's trademark is the sort of low, gravelly voice that's heard in the trailer. Pretty much all of his roles sound like that. I'd say it's either him or someone else; Tachiki would genuinely surprise me.

There's a new video out showing off Unit 04's new deco and the triple drill gloves: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DkVUseQeR5M

That weapon has Yamashita written all over it, doesn't it? :lol: I do like the new tron lines and detailing on the Eva itself. They help it feel more like a unique Eva and less like Eva 03 with a chrome addiction.

Edit: Some pictures!

I see Mari's name mentioned in the video description, so I guess she's the pilot? She'll overtake Kaworu's record of "most Evas piloted" at this rate!

I feel like I'm missing something obvious here, but haven't they both piloted the same amount of Eva's? Mari piloted Unit 5, Unit 2 and Unit 9 while Kaworu piloted Mark 6, Unit 2 and Unit 13.

Depends on how far you go into the spin-off material. Just the movies, it's 3-2 in Mari's favor. With NGE, they're tied at three each. If you factor in games, she has four (02, 05, 08 and 04 if she's really in this) and he has six (02, 04, 06, 13, a Mass Production Eva in GFoS2 and Beta).

Ah, I see. I don't know anything about the games, was just counting from Rebuild and NGE.

Eva fan has a new post detailing some of the sweet new merch available at the attraction via a collection of tweets:

This is an image from the Evangelion popcorn stand that recently circulated teh interwebs - to the right of Yui's popcorn-filled cranium is a white and red Evangelion I've never seen before (another image promotes Evangelion 2.0 in "Real 4D", though the unknown Eva seems to be unrelated to 2.0):

SPOILER: Show

Am I just out of the loop, or this is a genuinely unseen Eva? It physically resembles EVA-03, but has its own color scheme and some sort of attachment under its forearms. Since the buckets are Rebuild!EVA-01 and the popcorn stand promotes NTE, I figured this was the place to ask.

Theres a video on youtube with the sound of the attraction, There is a lot of action going on, but it doesnt sound like Unit 04 does much at all, since all evas have their poke at Zeruel and then Unit 04(piloted by Mari and you coming along in the ride as a guest around the geofront) tries and jobs, but then Unit one does the DMS stages stuff and all happens the same as in 2.0 with kaworu stopping third Impact.

The same as the first attraction, theres a lot of foreshadowing and hinting at the story planned for the final film, and all but confirms some theories:
In the first attraction Kaworu tells Shinji he is meant to guide the Lilin, but not yet. There was some revealing stuff among Gendou and SEELE abou the pilots and some kind of SHIN(?)

This time Kaji tells Mari when 01 reachs DMS stage 2 that Shinji and Rei are indeed "compatible types" an this has made unit 01 a trigger and Mari says "So this is what Gendou´s trying, repeat the same that happened 15 years ago" and Kaji says "exactly, to explode?(I dindt get this word right as the audio is pretty bad) this world, the Third Impact has begun, and the world is going to end". At this point Mari sadly cant do anything to save you since Unit 04s out of juice but Kaworu comes in and puts Shinji to sleep for 14 years while "Tsubasa Wo Kudasai" starts playing as Kaworu descends.

All in all pretty awesome stuff, right?

Check eBay periodically, I saw one sell for less than $40.00 once.

Currently one has a Starting bid of $49.99-(6 days left). Lowest price I've seen in a while. I got one for $60.00
Usually people price them between $80.00-$120.00 :uhh:
