Summer is almost here which means the beginning of convention season. With so many conventions to choose from and many more panels to try to attend, one could get easily overcome by the size of the California convention scene. Luckily Jojo’s got your back this summer with the touring ‘Jojo’s Bizarre Escape: The Hotel’. A press release from VIZ Media reads:


Based on author Hirohiko Araki’s groundbreaking Shonen Jump manga series, JOJO’S BIZARRE ADVENTURE follows the multigenerational tale of the heroic Joestar family and their never-ending battle against evil! In JOJO’S BIZARRE ESCAPE: THE HOTEL, fans will play the role of one of the five people (and one dog) on protagonist Jotaro’s team, travelling to defeat their arch nemesis, DIO. Trapped in a labyrinthine hotel, players must examine clues and solve a gauntlet of puzzles by utilizing their special abilities in order to defeat the mastermind! The spotlight of this event will be the brand new original character developed exclusively for this game, officially approved by Hirohiko Araki himself. Fans will also have a chance to get their hands on exclusive merchandise only available to individuals attending the event.

The CEO of Scrap Entertainment, Kazu Iwata, explained “This time around, we have the opportunity to hold games at anime conventions, which is definitely a prime location to immerse yourselves into this bizarre world! The more you immerse yourself, the better time you’ll have. Enjoy!”

The tour will be coming to Fanimecon in San Jose(May 25-28) and Anime Expo in Los Angeles(July 4-8). Session reservations for Fanime are currently available their official site while Anime Expo sessions will be open at a later date.
