Nintendo Is Making an Escape Room Featuring The Legend of Zelda
At long last, you can finally step inside the fantasy world of The Legend of Zelda. As Kotaku reports, Nintendo has partnered with SCRAP, the company behind Real Escape Game events, for a new IRL puzzle called “The Defenders of the Triforce."
The interactive game will visit eight U.S. cities to give fans an opportunity to experience the characters (like Link, Zora, and the Kokiri Tribes) and worlds from the classic NES game series. Instead of being locked in a room to escape, fans will have to work together in six-person teams to solve puzzles, collect items, and unlock new rooms to save the Triforce from the evil clutches of Ganondorf—all in 90 minutes. Afterward, fans can take photos of the Nintendo lounge and purchase exclusive Legend of Zelda merchandise like posters, t-shirts, and coins.
“At Nintendo, we’re always looking for ways to offer new experiences for all of our fans, and expose our characters and franchises to new audiences,” said Doug Bowser, Nintendo of America’s Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing, in a press release. “Partnering with SCRAP allows us to offer a new perspective on this legendary series.”
“The Defenders of the Triforce” tour kicks off in San Francisco at the end of January 2017. For more information on tour dates, official rules, and ticketing, visit scrapzelda.com.
