Demon Slayer: Mugen Train Inspires Escape Room This Fall
25.August.2022 | ANIME&GAME
Tokyo Mystery Circus, a micro-theme park in Shinjuku, has announced a new escape game in collaboration with the wildly popular Demon Slayer: Mugen Train. From October 27, 2022, until January 24, 2023, fans will be invited to participate in this exciting and challenging event inspired by the series’ story.
Players will be locked inside a room designed to perfectly resemble the Mugen Train and must work together to escape.
The story explains that each player is a member of the Demon Slayer Corps. After boarding the Mugen Train, they suddenly fall asleep, only waking up to find that Tanjiro and Rengoku are facing off against Emma.
Guests will need to hurry up and solve a series of difficult puzzles to help defeat the demon and escape the train before it’s too late.
The game also includes tons of effects and gimmicks from the Demon Slayer series, such as actually getting tickets to board the Mugen Train. Guests can also wield their own swords to take on the baddies.
Tickets will be available for preorder starting August 27 at 12:00. Limited event goods and food items will also be available for purchase.
Do you think you have what it takes to escape?
You’re a member of the Demon Slayer Corps.
Following orders, you board the Mugen Train towards your next duty.
After the conductor hands you your ticket, you suddenly fall asleep.
Apparently, this was the work of Emmu’s Blood Demon Art.
When you wake, you see Tanjiro and the Flame Hashira Kyojuro Rengoku.
And then, the fearsome Emmu materializes before you…
It’s up to you to help Tanjiro and Rengoku defeat the demons and escape the Mugen Train!

Kohta Yamamoto, the next-generation composer in charge of creating music for anime series like Attack on Titan The Final Season and Kingdom, has released a remix album! The album contains rearranged versions of his own anime tracks released by Pony Canyon and is now available to stream.
The jacket illustration was created by Yasuto Sasada, a contemporary artist from the same generation was Yamamoto, who was born in 1987 and is active around the world.
“The background is blue, which is reminiscent of the Japanese sea and sky,” Sasada said. “His hair is red, reminiscent of the rising sun. The clothing and headphones are decorated with ukiyo-e and traditional patterns. Yamamoto’s mastery of the sounds of so many instruments needed to be represented, so I embedded piano and guitar parts into his body.”
