SCRAP announced today that it will hold the “Online Real Escape Game x HUNTERxHUNTER: Escape from the Trick Dungeon” event. SCRAP is a company based in Tokyo that plans and operates the Real Escape Game series. The new Hunter x Hunter project will be held for only 3 months from March 25 to June 27, 2021. “Escape from the Trick Dungeon” is the third collaboration between Hunter x Hunter and The Real Escape Game series. For example, they held “Escape from The Greed Island Amusement Park” last year (from September to November 2020).
This time, however, you will be able to participate in a game inspired by “The Hunter Exam” online from everywhere, as long as you purchase a game kit. You will communicate with Gon, Killua, Leorio, and Kurapika as they help you pass the exam. They will share information about the dungeon with you via the game’s website. Thanks to their guidance and the game kit, you will be able to build a model of the dungeon where Gon and the rest are trapped. The model will change as the story progresses!
Standard game kit costs 3,000 yen and premium one costs 4,000 yen. Even if pricier, the premium one is worth it as you get a mug and a challenge letter from Hisoka! What’s more, you will be able to preorder those kits via SCRAP GOODS SHOP starting March 1, 2021.

Unfortunately, the project isn’t a new anime like we anticipated, but we have to admit that it still is nice!
