Gonzo Anime for Chunsoft's Extreme Escape Adventure Posted
posted on by Egan Loo
The game developer Chunsoft (999: Nine Hours, Nine Persons, Nine Doors, Mystery Dungeon) began streaming the full 13-minute promotional anime for next year's Kyokugen Dasshutsu ADV: Zennin Shibō Desu (Extreme Escape Adventure: Good People Die) game on Wednesday. The video features animation by the studio Gonzo (Nyanpire The Animation, Last Exile: Fam, the Silver Wing) and the image song "Kimi no Yukue" by Boris.
In the game, nine people find themselves trapped in an abandoned warehouse. In order to escape, they have to play a game of betrayal called "Ambidex Game"; each has to decide who to trust and who to double-cross.
Gonzo's promotional anime tells a part of the story that cannot seen in the game itself. In particular, the anime will show the game's prologue and the story of how the nine came together. The voice cast of the game, led by Kousuke Toriumi as Sigma, take on their same roles in the anime.
The game will ship for the Nintendo 3DS and PlayStation Vita handheld systems in Japan on February 16, 2012. Chunsoft streamed the opening to the anime last week.
