In 2009, anime fans were delighted when a life-size statue of a Gundam robot was unveiled in Tokyo's Odaiba district. The statue has now become a landmark attraction in the shopping and entertainment area.

And this year, there's finally some action as Gundam fights with another robot, something you get to see from a premium seat — Gundam's gigantic hand.

All this excitement comes thanks to virtual reality, launched last week by Bandai Namco Entertainment Inc. at VR Zone Project i Can in Odaiba.
