Doraemon’s latest animated movie “Doraemon: Nobita no Himitsu Dougu Museum” (Nobita’s Secret Tool Museum) is coming to 3DS on March 7, 2013. It’s a single-player detective game by developer Furyu that will cost 5,229 yen.
The game of course is based on the movie of the same title, set for release on March 9th. Nobita’s Secret Tool Museum will let you interactively enjoy the plot of the movie, as you search for hidden items in the museum, many of which fans will recognize as Doraemon’s own special toys seen previously in the animated series.
As you progress in the game, you will have the opportunity to play up to 5 kinds of mini games, the details of which have yet to be announced. It seems that Furyu, unwilling to spoil the plot of the movie, are keeping a pretty tight lip on this one.
Images released so far do reveal a rhythm game style mini game which requires you to hit various buttons on the 3DS in sync with the icons on screen, and one of the secret items has been revealed as the “Korobashiya” or “Toppler”. The Toppler’s description is given as follows: “Insert 10 Yen and call someone’s name and the Toppler will make them topple over 3 times”. Let’s just hope you don’t have to insert real money into the game!
Images have also revealed that Nobita will be playing a faux Sherlock character (called, aptly enough, “Sherlock Nobita”). The presumable villain of the game is called “Kaitou DX” (“Thief Deluxe”), and he looks to be a Moriarty-themed robot. So that should be fun.
