The Detective Conan escape rooms have been a popular installation at Universal Studios Japan for quite some time now. And coming up, they’ll be getting a revamp, with a new set of mysteries to solve.
Detective Conan: The Escape – Prelude of Zero will tie into Zero’s Executioner, the franchise’s upcoming film for 2018. Both the film and the escape game see Conan and Amuro facing off once again. Little is known of the plot of the escape game revamp, or how it will fit into the plot of the upcoming film.
Detective Conan-themed escape rooms have been in existence since 2013, and have attracted more than 600,000 attendees. Prelude of Zero marks the fifth Detective Conan escape room to be held at Universal Studios Japan, with the last being in 2015.
The event will be open from January 19 to June 24, 2018, and will require a premium pass in addition to admission to Universal Studios Japan.
