Escape rooms and puzzle-solving events for popular franchises are a hot trend in recent years in Japan. The Yu-Gi-Oh! franchise is now getting on board with its own SCRAP puzzle-solving event collaboration.
The new event titled "Mystery Mail Box x Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel Monsters Kaiba Corporation kara no Chōsenjō" (Challenge From Kaiba Corporation) will run at Tokyo Mystery Circus in Tokyo, Nazo Complex Nagoya in Aichi, and Ajito of SCRAPNazo Building in Osaka.
The event will be the latest in SCRAP's Mystery Mail Box series, which has participants advance through puzzles by reading letters inside red mailboxes on a wall. For the Yu-Gi-Oh! event, Kaiba Corporation president Seto Kaiba invites participants as testers for his newest system. Participants aim to earn the title of "Duel King" by completing the challenges.
Tickets will cost 1,500 yen (about US$14). Schedule and limited-edition merchandise information will be announced in the future.
