Earlier today, Viz Media announced that they’re partnering with SCRAP Entertainment to present a Real Escape Game based on JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure. The game, titled JoJo’s Bizarre Escape: The Hotel, will be set up at FanimeCon and Anime Expo. Ticket prices are as follows:
- FanimeCon: $28
- Anime Expo: $40
JoJo’s Bizarre Escape: The Hotel will place players into the role of one of five people (plus a dog) on Jotaro Kujo’s team. Through the experience, players will explore a mazelike hotel, solving puzzles and unearthing clues as they set out to take down the villainous Dio Brando. Players will have 60 seconds to get through the event once it begins.
The game features a new, original character who was developed exclusively for the game and personally approved by series creator Hirohiko Araki.
A visual for the game was released, which you can check out below:
The event’s official website describes the story as:
In order to defeat their arch nemesis DIO, Jotaro and the team travel to Egypt.
During their stay at a hotel, they suddenly hear a mysterious voice.
“Hello… Have you decided on how you’re going to spend your last hour alive?”
The voice continues as Jotaro’s group prepares for battle.
“If you don’t escape this hotel within 1 hour… you will all vanish into thin air!”
“Are you one of DIO’s minions?! Show yourself!”
The walls suddenly start moving, and the hotel transforms into a complex maze.
A swift punch strikes the wall, but not even a scratch was left.
“Looks like we’re trapped.”
“You have exactly one hour until your check out… from life, that is! Hahahaha!”
The voice fades out.
“A Stand that takes no damage…. Then there’s only one thing we can do.”
“Find the culprit within 1 hour and beat him… right?”
5 people and 1 dog are trapped with a 1 hour time limit.
Will they be able to solve the mystery behind the enemy’s stand and escape from this labyrinth?
FanimeCon will be held from May 25 – 28 at the San Jose McEnery Convention Center. Anime Expo will be held from July 5 – 8 at the Los Angeles Convention Center.
