Square Enix set to open first theme park in 2020
POSTED 03 Jan 2020 . BY Lauren Heath-Jones
Ninja Tower Tokyo is expected to open later this year
Square Enix, a Japanese video game developer behind hit games such as Final Fantasy, Kingdom of Hearts and Dragon Quest, has announced plans to open a theme park in Tokyo, Japan later this year.

The park, called Ninja Tower Tokyo, will be located in Tokyo Tower - an observation and communications tower in the Shiba-koen district of the Minato area of Tokyo - and is the company's first large-scale theme park project.

It will offer state-of-the-art ninja-themed attractions, inspired by the ninjas that served as guardians of the shogun's mausoleum in the early 19th century when Tokyo was a small village named Edo.

The news follows the announcement, made at the 2019 Leisure Japan Theme Park Expo in December, of two upcoming interactive experiences: Crystal Story and Yokero, developed by Live Interactive Works, the location-based entertainment arm of Square Enix.

Crystal Story is an escape room style attraction that sees players, armed only with a lamp, guided by an unseen narrator through an enclosed space with glowing gemstones and digital projections, while Yokero sees players leaping on to digitally projected floor panels.

Whilst both are standalone experiences, separate from Ninja Tower Tokyo, they offer insight into what can be expected from Ninja Tower Tokyo.
