The March issue of Kodansha's Bessatsu Shōnen Magazine is announcing on Monday that SCRAP will hold the upcoming New York version of the Escape from the Walled City: Attack on Titan (Shingeki no Kyojin) x Real Escape Game in the Richmond County Bank Ballpark on April 11.
Attack on Titan Real Escape is an immersive, interactive game played in real outdoors settings.
Three events, each about one and a half hours long including the solution reveal, was held on Sunday, February 1 at AT&T Park in San Francisco. The game will then head to Los Angeles on Saturday, March 21 at the Weingart Stadium in East Los Angeles College at 10:30 a.m., 2:30 p.m., and 6:30 p.m. PST. The event will be the same at all three locations. Knowledge of the Attack on Titan anime and manga is not necessary to successfully win the game.
Advanced tickets cost US$30 or participants can buy tickets at the door for US$35.
As in other Real Escape Games, players have to cooperate to solve puzzles to get items and passwords that they need to escape. The scenario has players act as trainees hoping to join the Survey Corps. The graduation event is interrupted when Titans attack and break into the citadel, and players have one hour to find the escape route.
After completing its run in Japan last year, the game headed to Singapore's Yio Chu Kang Stadium from December 13 to 14. The organizers describe the Singapore version:
The Titans are spotted to be on their way to Singapore shore!! They have managed to break through our high walls of defence, and we need to escape from these human devouring titans!!
You are now officially part of the Survey Corp!
The fate of mankind lies in your hands! ONE HOUR LEFT TO ESCAPE FROM THIS DESPAIR!
