On February 15, 2024, a media presentation for "HELLO! TOKYO FRIENDS" was held at SusHi Tech Square in Marunouchi, Chiyoda-ku, Tokyo. We were honored to have MOGAMI MOGA, well-known for her love of gaming, as a guest speaker. She enthusiastically took the stage and had the opportunity to experience "HELLO! TOKYO FRIENDS" firsthand!

[Message from MOGAMI MOGA]

"I just experienced “HELLO! TOKYO FRIENDS”! The combination of gaming and exploring Tokyo was a pleasant surprise! Not only did it foster connections between people, but the content also made it easy to create friendships, making it a highly enjoyable experience. The combination of a treasure hunt game with sightseeing added an extra layer of excitement. It would be wonderful if people from overseas, who are unfamiliar with Tokyo, could develop a lot of interest through the metaverse!

Creating “new relationships” to change the current situation might seem challenging in the real world, but I felt it could be done more casually in the metaverse.

In an era where almost everyone has a smartphone, the possibility of conversing and making friends with people worldwide through simultaneous translation is a dream come true! When I think about my own experience during school days, when I struggled to make friends and felt lonely, online games were a significant source of solace. If someone is going through a tough time or feels a lack of joy in their daily life, I strongly encourage them to give it a try!"

[Message from Head of Roblox Japan]
