Bandai Namco previously released Run for Money Tousouchuu: Escape from the Greatest Hunters in History, a game based on Fuji TV’s show. This game went on to sell well over 500,000 copies in Japan. Naturally, Namco then followed up with a second game with a similar premise, featuring ninjas. This one sold over 350,000 copies.
Unsurprisingly, now, a third game in this series is in development, and is slated for the Nintendo 3DS this July. [Thanks, Game Jouhou]
Last year, Bandai Namco released Battle for Money Sentouchuu, which was the game featuring ninjas. This third one, however, this one is similar to the first game, and is called Super Tousouchuu Gather! The Ultimate Escapees. It will have players take on missions and escape from the men in black suits and sunglasses.
The sequel will have local multiplayer, with cooperative missions and games that require Mii characters. Again, by progressing through missions, various stories will unfold. There are special stages like the Fantasy Map, Gold Rush USA, Pyramid Stage, and other new additions.
Super Tousouchuu Gather! The Ultimate Escapees will release in Japan on July 9, 2015 for Nintendo 3DS. While the game hasn’t been announced for release in the West, if you have a smartphone you can try out the first Run for Money game.
