DGS at NicoNico Chou Kaigi 2015!Capcom has announced that DGS will be present at the NicoNico Chou Kaigi event running from April 25th to April 26th! The site promises special stage shows, new information, and playable demos, though it's not clear how much of that will apply to DGS. Additional info about the booths will be announced on March 24th, and additional info about the stage shows on April 10th. At least some of the stage shows will be livestreamed.
For reference, last time an AA game was at Chou Kaigi, it was Dual Destinies, and it brought with it this trailer showing off the gameplay. It was also preceded by a glut of new info about the game (Apollo's return, release date, etc.), and it kicked off the marketing that led up to the game's release in July of 2013. Here's hoping for a similar situation with DGS! Reply || Read Comments By Bolt Storm

Unfortunately, details are still pending on this (probably Japan-only) event, but the logo sure looks nice:
A "real escape game" is a type of live puzzle event, where participants work together to solve a mystery within a time limit, aided by clues left at the scene to be investigated. For more details, check this official site in English: http://realescapegame.com/whatisreg/
So... any chance this would actually hit San Fransisco some time? Reply || Read Comments By Rubia Ryu the Royal
