Studio Ghibli And Totoro Go Virtual

With the rise in popularity of virtual reality, thanks to the decrease in price of the tech involved, a lot more companies are starting to branch out into this new platform. Now, if you happen to own a HTC Vive or Oculus Rift, you can explore some pretty cool worlds recently made available to the public.

Nick Pittom from Fire Panda has been hard at work on some worlds from the Studio Ghibli universe. Specifically, there are sections from Howl’s Moving Castle, Spirited Away and My Neighbour Totoro which you can check out in the VR world. To get a better idea, have a look at the clip below:

Fire Panda is a British virtual reality development studio who amongst other projects were also behind the Apollo 11 VR experience. You’ll be able to walk around these environments and be able to check out Totoro at the iconic bus stop scene in full detail which sounds great.
