Ikebukuro’s Prince Hotel in Sunshine City has remade its top 25th floor multiple times, with decor inspired by fan-favorite anime and games. Next up, visitors can look forward to a magical airship adventure as the hotel prepares to launch Granblue Fantasy concept rooms!
The project, called IKEPRI25, kicked off with a collaboration with Fate/Grand Order. Visitors could stay in rooms modeled after popular characters and take home themed gifts, and spend time in four lounges full of series memorabilia and exhibits. Currently running is a dual collaboration, bringing in both idol series King of Prism and mobile game DREAM!ing.
The @ikepri25 Twitter account announced that next up would be game-turned-anime Granblue Fantasy. Once again visitors can look forward to character-inspired hotel suites and lounges. Concepts and images will be revealed in the near future. When the time comes, prospective visitors will be able to enter a lottery for the chance to purchase a stay in one of the concept rooms.
IKEPRI25’s Granblue Fantasy collaboration will run from November to January.
