Latest Attack on Titan Real Escape Game Story Traps Players in a Castle
posted on by Amanda Ellard
With only a few comrades left alive, hiding in an old castle quickly crumbling beneath a horde of titans' strength, do you have what it takes to escape? The Attack on Titan Real Escape Game saga continues with "Escape from the Castle Surrounded by Titans."
To celebrate its opening, Nico Nico held a special live broadcast "Real Escape Game x Attack on Titan: Escape from Nico-ni Castle Surrounded by Titans" on August 6 from 9:30-10:30 p.m (8:30-9:30 a.m EST). The program featured Yuuki Kaji (voice of Eren Jaeger) Yui Ishikawa (voice of Mikasa Ackerman) and Yu Kobayashi (voice of Sasha Braus), with commentary by Hisashi Somekawa (SCRAP) and hosting by Naoki Yoshida (NBS). In addition to solving special mysteries with the cast, the program also revealed original event goods.
"Escape from the Castle Surrounded by Titans" first opened in Tokyo on June 9. As in other Real Escape Games, players have to cooperate to solve puzzles in order to get items and passwords that they need to escape. The "Castle" official website provides the prologue story and terrifying situation.
You are a member of the Survey Corps, humanity's hope. One day you are out beyond the walls on an investigation when a group of titans suddenly attack and the troop falls into devastating circumstances. Only a few have survived. You all escape with your lives to the old castle, but in the blink of an eye it is surrounded by titans. The building is shaking as the titans attack relentlessly and the walls continue to collapse one after the other. If the titans are allowed to penetrate the castle, everyone will be eaten. There is one hour let until the titans destroy the castle. Will you, cooperating with your remaining comrades, be able to survive this hopeless situation?
