Detective Conan Real-Escape Game Challenges Players Investigative Skills
posted on by Carlos Cadorniga
People in Osaka will soon have the opportunity to put the sleuthing skills to the test.
"Shinsaibashi Chocolate Murder Case" real-escape game event by Scrap featuring the long-running mystery anime Detective Conan will be held at the Ajito Obusu Scrap in Shinsaibashi Opa shopping station starting on December 12.
The game is split into three different categories; questioning, crime scene investigation and escape. Utilizing the same investigative skills as the titular detective Shinichi Kudo/Conan Edogawa (and to a lesser extent private detective Kogoro Mori), participants will start at the questioning portion at the beginning of the event, but must make their way through all three categories in order to get to the bottom of this mysterious case.
The event will last through January 31, 2016. Admission tickets cost 1,000 yen (US$8.34) and six people can participate at once. Each one lasts 30 minutes with multiple shows each day. Various theme souvenirs will soon be announced as well.
This collaboration began as a yearly event back in 2013. The series inspired a treasure hunt in western Tottori last year. The "Real Escape Game x Detective Conan: Escape From a Skyscraper" event was held in 2013, but much of the fun was overshadowed when one of the props was mistaken for a real bomb by local police.
