Who else loves this Japanese Ninja anime character Naruto? I was especially in love with him during my high school years. I can still easily watch an entire episode nowadays.
I'm so excited to see this news that SCRAP (one of the original creators of Escape Rooms in Japan) will be bringing this "Real Stealth Game" ( 沉浸式潜入游戏 by SCRAP ～成为忍者的试炼～ ) to the newly refurbished Shanghai New World Shopping Mall in the heart of Shanghai!!!
Information provided by SCRAP's press release:
The game will be one of the entertainment segments in the 7000 square meter (~74,000 sq ft) large NARUTO theme park, NARUTO WORLD, that will be situated on the 11th floor of the shopping mall.
The concept is based on SCRAP's entertainment brand, Real Stealth Game, where players physically sneak around a venue, clear missions along the way, and complete their final mission.
The game for Shanghai, in Simplified Chinese, will be a wholly redeveloped experience to appeal to the Chinese-speaking audience. Players are fully immersed inside a NARUTO-themed fortress for a 10-20 minutes action-packed experience with high-tech motion sensors, devices, large digital displays, and interactive props.
Business-wise, SCRAP is re-branding their games and business model to actively appeal to overseas audiences and businesses, and seeking global partners to work with and bring these events to even greater heights.
Entrance Fee: Adults: 170 yuan | Children/Senior/Disabled: 120 yuan
Open from: Pre-open: 23 December 2019 | Grand open: 25 January 2020
Game style: Indoors. Use a device and make your way through an area without getting caught. Complete mini missions along the way and complete the final mission that Naruto tasked you with!
Group size: Up to 3 players per team
Duration: Between 10~25 minutes depending on how many times players get caught or how fast they clear the missions
This is a must do on our list when we go on our China tour this year in October!
