Shonen Jump Magazine Gets Its Own Theme Park Next Summer

ANN writes: "Namco Bandai Group announced on Monday that it will open the world's first theme park devoted to Shueisha's manga magazine Weekly Shonen Jump next summer. The theme park will span 6,168 square meters (1.52 acres) on the third floor of the Sunshine City World Import Mart Building in Tokyo's Ikebukuro ward.

Namco will be the main operator of the park with the rest of the Namco Bandai Group offering its character business expertise in toys, hobby goods, entertainment content, and amusement facilities. (The Sunshine City World Import Mart Building already houses Namco's indoor theme park Namja Town on the second and third floors.) Shueisha's Weekly Shonen Jump editors will take part in the project and collaborate on the planning. The anime studios Toei Animation and Pierrot will also participate." (Culture, Namco Bandai, Shonen Jump)
