In their continued quest to conquer all media, the girls of Aqours are gearing up to host a mystery escape game. Love Live! fans can join the girls for a day of mystery and puzzle solving at Awashima Marine Park.
Titled Escape from the Solitary Island Aquarium, the event is a collaboration between Love Live! Sunshine!! and Japanese escape room company Real Escape Game. The company has created escape room and live game experiences based on original concepts, but recently have also debuted games themed to Detective Conan, JoJo's Bizarre Adventure, Pokémon, and many others.
Participants will be asked to bring their smartphones and earbuds to the event, as the girls of Aqours will be guiding them through their mystery tour via audio.
The event is currently being advertised with full-bus wrappings featuring the girls of Aqours in their mystery-solving gear.
Naturally, the event will also feature a line of exclusive merchandise. So far, fans can expect to see special chocolates and bottled water.
In addition, "Kimi no Hitomi o Meguru Bouken" -- the B-side to the show's second OP -- will serve as the event's image song.
Real Escape Game x Love Live! Sunshine!! -Escape from the Solitary Island Aquarium- will take place from March 19 to June 3, 2018. Tickets are 4,500 yen in advance, or 7,000 yen in advance with special goods. Tickets at the gate will be 5,000 yen, but may not be available if all sessions are fully booked in advance.
