SCRAP Announces Legend of Zelda Escape Game

Bummed out at the long wait for The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild? This may help.

Nintendo is teaming up with SCRAP Entertainment to create a real escape game based on the Zelda franchise, it was reported today.

The escape game, entitled Defenders of the Triforce, is a “unique and interactive live puzzle event where teams solve mysteries and clues within a time limit” with a Legend of Zelda theme.

The following dates and cities have been announced:

  • San Francisco: Jan 31 – Feb 5
  • Los Angeles: Feb 10 – Feb 12
  • Phoenix: Feb 15 – Feb 17
  • San Diego: Feb 24 – Feb 25
  • Seattle: TBD
  • Houston: TBD
  • Chicago: TBD
  • New York: TBD

According to the FAQ, Defenders of the Triforce “is NOT a traditional escape room (i.e. locked inside a room). It is a fully hosted, story-based escape event designed for puzzle fans and fans of the Zelda franchise. There will be multiple teams in the event space all participating at the same time, and each team will have their own table to work at when not exploring.”

Admission includes a poster, and a more expensive “gold package” includes a “premium coin.”

It sounds like tickets are going fast, so if you’re interested, click over to SCRAP’s site.

SCRAP Entertainment previously ran an escape game based on Attack on Titan.
