Participants become pupils of the Kamiya Kasshin-ryu school
Tokyo-based company SCRAP, internationally known for its Real Escape Game series, will hold a new real-life adventure game inspired by Nobuhiro Watsuki's popular manga series Rurouni Kenshin at Museum Meijimura in Aichi Prefecture between September 11 and December 15, 2019.
As reported several times, the game has collaborated with One Piece, Detective Conan, Evangelion, Love Live! Sunshine!!, and many other popular Japanese manga/anime franchise. This is the first Real Escape Game based on the Rurouni Kenshin franchise.
The title of the Rurouni Kenshin game is "Shura Hisomu Kyoto kara no Dasshutsu ~Onore no Ken to Kobushi de Konomachi wo Mamore" (The Escape from Kyoto where Asura is hidden ~Protect the town with your own sword and fists~). Participants become pupils of the Kamiya Kasshin-ryu school, and face the enemy alongside Kenshin and others. To achieve their goal, they have to talk to various people directly and learn the kenjutsu/swordmanship of a certain character in the franchise. The open-air museum displays over sixty buildings from the Meiji Period, so the participants will be able to feel like actually time-slipping to the world of Rurouni Kenhsin.
The ticket price for the game is 2,200 yen (about 21 US dollars), and the 1,700 yen (16 Us dollars) ticket for the park itself is also needed to join the game. Estimated playing time is two to three hours.
