Hajime Isayama’s highly popular series Attack on Titan has proven its popularity worldwide with its mangas, dvd’s, figures, dolls and other merchandise known to sell out in just mere hours. Now, fans can get to experience the real thing thanks to a collaboration between the series and Japanese company, Scrap.
A series of Attack on Titan “Real Escape Games” will be held in six cities, Yokohama, Osaka, Nagoya, Sendai, Fukuoka and Tokyo and they will all be organized by Scrap which has made a name for itself for producing these games.
“Real Escape Games” combine the haunted house environment with puzzle solving and Scrap has held these games not only in Japan but also in Singapore, the United States and China. The Attack on Titan edition will sport the series theme and will have players join the Survey Corps. On the recruits’ very first day on the job however, the city is besieged by the titans.
As it is really dangerous for players to use the 3D Maneuver Gear to kill the titans, the players’ goal is instead to flee to the city’s inner walls by solving puzzles. There will be a one hour time limit and those who stay behind will get eaten!
Dubbed Escape from a Certain Walled City, this Attack on Titan-based “Real Escape Game” will be touring six Japanese cities through these dates:
May 3,4: Yokohama, Yokohama Stadium
May (exact date to be announced): Osaka (exact location TBA)
May 25, June 1: Nagoya, Toyota Stadium
