Hideaki Anno, the series creator, is perhaps most known for his role in the creation of the renowned anime series Neon Genesis Evangelion. Still, he has also been busy with his “Shin Universe” series of movies, which give iconic Japanese villains and heroes a serious makeover.
The Shin Japan Heroes Amusement World new event in Japan commemorates the “Shin Japan Heroes Universe,” which includes characters like Godzilla, Kamen Rider, Ultraman, and the NERV EVA pilots. Fans have been speculating whether we’ll one day see an epic crossover on the big screen.
The Shin Japan Heroes Amusement World
Bandai Namco Japan has provided new photographs of the event taking place in Japan. The “Shin Japan Heroes Amusement World” brings together characters like Godzilla, Eva Unit 01, Ultraman, and Kamen Rider in their new interpretations from Hideaki Anno. Check out the visuals below:
The entrance to the amusement world showcases the four primary characters of the Shin Universe. The Centerpiece places the four characters in a singular art visual; this teases that there might be a crossover of all characters.
In Shin Godzilla, the first film in the Shin Universe, director Hideaki Anno gave us the most horrifying representation of the king of the monsters to date while also crafting a tale that was equally concerned with the logistics of a kaiju attack as it was with the kaiju itself. Although a North American release date has not yet been announced, Shin Ultraman has already premiered in Japan. It will be intriguing to see if we ever get a live-action take on the world of Evangelion and eventually see all of these iconic characters appear in the same movie alongside one another as Shin Kamen Rider is planned to be the third component of this universe.
Shin Ultraman Music Video
The video for Kenshi Yonezu’s song “M87,” the theme song for the recently released tokusatsu film, features the footage. The video gives viewers a closer look at the Giant of Light’s new transformation technique and several of the kaiju that Ultraman battles.
Fans who wish to see the new movie for the first time are advised not to watch the video because it features clips from all of the movie’s sequences, including its climactic moments.
Check out the video below:
On May 13, 2022, the movie had its Japanese debut. Despite receiving less favorable reviews than 2017’s Shin Godzilla, the film is on track to outperform its predecessor in box office take, earning more than 2.7 billion yen (about $21 million) in its first two weeks. The movie is presently the highest-grossing live-action release from 2022 in Japan and the most profitable theatrical release in the Ultraman franchise.
