'Legend Of Zelda' To Develop 'Defenders Of Triforce' Escape Room In The US Ahead Of 'Legend Of Zelda: Breath Of The Wild'
Nintendo's "The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild" will not be available until in March 2017, but through collaborative efforts with SCRAP, the video game giant in the United States is developing escape rooms patterned after "The Legend of Zelda" game series. The escape rooms will be exclusively available in several cities in the United States beginning January 2017.
The escape room, called "Defenders of the Triforce" is a real-world puzzle game, where the enthusiasts or even those who are interested are placed in "locked-down space," to collectively solve some puzzles and eventually make an escape. The Zelda-themed "Defenders of the Triforce" will reportedly tour eight cities such as Seattle, New York, Chicago, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Houston and Phoenix, according to CNET.
The Verge reported that Nintendo intended to make the "Defenders of the Triforce" escape rooms different from the usual escape room of other games. A team will compose of six members who will be placed inside the escape room to solve mysteries within an allotted time. The escape rooms will be interactive, allowing interaction with characters and classic items of "The Legend of Zelda" series such as Kokiri, Zora and Goron tribes. These items the team may discover inside the escape room will be helpful in solving the puzzles and in progressing into the game, much like what they experienced in all of game series of "The Legend of Zelda."
There is no news yet whether the "Defenders of the Triforce" escape room will also be available in other countries. Meanwhile, it was previously reported that release for the game "The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild" is suspended until 2017 due to some last minute changes on the game. Much of the "Breath of the Wild" series is closely similar to its predecessor, "The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess."
