Arc System Works Bringing Another Escape Adventure Game To 3DS


Remember Girl of the Old School Building? It was an escape adventure game released by Arc System Works for the Nintendo 3DS as a download title in Japan.


Developed by Intense Corp, who have made a large number of Escape Trick games for DSiWare and the eShop, Girl of the Old School Building took place in a school concealing a number of mysteries. It was followed up by a similar title called The Mansion Where the Witch Lives, and a third game after that, titled The Shinigami Train Nightmare.


Collectively, this is referred to as the “Escape Adventure” series.


Now, Arc System Works are teasing the fourth game in the series. On the official website for the Escape Adventure series, they’ve erected a banner that says “Coming Soon”. No further details have been shared yet.


Given that Arc System Works continue to roll these visual novel-style games out for the 3DS at a steady pace, these games must be doing fairly well. Just recently, they released another one titled Ghost Detective: Shida’s Ayakashi Case Book.
