VR Rhythm Game Hotel Transylvania Popstic is coming to arcades worldwide


Have a blast with your favorite Hotel Transylvania characters.

Do you want to shake up what your mom gave you with the monsters from the Hotel Transylvania series? You can, very soon, as a new game based on the animated film franchise is now available in over 500 VR arcades across North America, Europe and China. The game, surprisingly, is a VR rhythm title, called Hotel Transylvania Popstic. Not exactly what you had in mind for the property, given its horror roots and monster-laden history, but hey! More rhythm games are always good in my book.

You can choose from Drac, Mavis or Johnny to play as a DJ, then choose songs from the playlist of the character you have chosen. Once you’ve chosen a song, you’ll dance to the music while using a VR controller known as Stic, created by Specular Theory’s Sony Pictures Virtual Reality.

“From the ground up, Hotel Transylvania Popstic was designed to work for the growing VR arcade audience. It’s the perfect combination of a brand of movies families love and such a fun musical rhythm game. watching than playing,” said Jake Zim, senior vice president of virtual reality at Sony Pictures Entertainment.

Unfortunately, we have no way to see the game in action or really judge if it’s any good or not right now, so just imagine you’re dancing in real life in a VR arcade using a “Stic” with Hotel Transylvania characters, and you should be good to go.
