posted on by Karen Ressler
The official Final Fantasy XIV Facebook page announced on Wednesday that game design company SCRAP will run its Final Fantasy XIV Real Escape Game "Trials of Bahamut" in the United States this summer. The game will visit Los Angeles, San Francisco, Seattle, Phoenix, Houston, Orlando, Chicago, and New York.
The Real Escape Game will tour five Japanese cities beginning in Tokyo on February 10. The Final Fantasy franchise is celebrating its 30th anniversary this year.
The website describes the Real Escape Game's premise:
The primal dragon Bahamut once wreaked havoc on the realm of Eorzea and brought the world to the brink of destruction.
However, the Archon Louisoix and the Warriors of Light were able to stave off his onslaught and save the world from despair.
With their strength, Bahamut vanished, Eorzea was restored, and peace returned once more.
5 years later…
Bahamut, believed to have long since perished, is secretly being revived deep within a subterranean ruin.
The time remaining until his awakening: 60 minutes.
Can you and your party stop the chaos before it begins?
The battle for Eorzea starts now!
Scrap describes a Real Escape Game as "a unique and interactive live puzzle event where teams solve mysteries and clues within a time limit." The company emphasize that this version is not a maze or traditional escape room, but "a fully hosted, story-based escape event designed for puzzle fans and fans of the Zelda franchise."
