Japanese company rebuilds old Tokyo in Second Life

I have not seen a lot of crowd pleasers at the Virtual World Expo [ja] I attended last week but Second Coa‘s booth was actually a heavily frequented one.

The company did a great job in reconstructing Edo in Second Life. Edo is the old name for Tokyo.

I suggest you just have a look at Second Coa’s dedicated web page. In case you don’t have an account for Second Life, you can watch a video demonstration in English of the project (including more information on monetization, strategy etc.) here.
