One of them is an escape room called “Meitantei Conan the Escape ~Zero no Prelude~” (Detective Conan the Escape: Zero’s Prelude). This escape room experience will also serve an entry to the next forthcoming animated film, Meitantei Conan Zero no Shikkounin (Detective Conan: Zero’s Executioner). The film releases on April 13th so expect to see promotions ramping up very soon.
The 2nd attraction is a special dinner and show for the guests called “Detective Conan Mystery Restaurant”. There’s also a cosplayer dressed as Tooru Amuro who will go around the restaurant and take pictures with the diners.
The third attraction is a “Detective Conan Mystery Challenge,” where attendees will be required to collect stamps that are scattered throughout the theme park. Heiji Hattori will also feature in this adventure that has a mystery theme.

Seems like those 3DS AR cards that Nintendo announced during their recent Nintendo Direct broadcast are starting to pick up momentum with the news that another title will also be utilising their own AR cards.
Detective Conan: Marionette Symphony, which is a title that probably will never see the light of day outside Japan, will be using AR cards to project a mini Conan onto a surface who will be able to give you gameplay tips and guide you along the way. The story revolves around an accomplished sleuth who after drinking poison reverts back to a child.
The AR Conan will be able to assist you by giving advice depending on what the mission is or what the objective is that needs to be met to complete a level. Seems pretty nifty if you ask us. With the Mario AR cards and now Detective Conan, are we seeing a new gameplay technique on the horizon?
