Time to bust out! Puzzle adventure “Prison Princess” coming to Switch on 30 January
Earlier this week, Qureate launched an official trailer for Prison Princess, a point-and-click-esque “princess escape adventure” game scheduled to bust out onto the Nintendo Switch eShop worldwide on 30 January.
You can watch the delightfully risqué trailer below, which is followed by a breakdown of the game taken from the official Prison Princess website:
The continent of Maygard.
The peace and prosperity brought about by the two kingdoms of “Aria Zaza” and “Zanji Zed” lasted countless years.
That golden era is now facing its downfall.
The Demon King, released from his seal, has turned our continent to a sea of flames.
As cities were invaded one after another, a man appeared carrying the blood of ancient heroes… Oh Brave Hero.
During his journey, the hero was met with grave misfortune and perished.
The Demon King’s minions snuck into the capital cities of the two kingdoms to kidnap their precious princesses. All hope seemed to have been lost…
However, it seems our hero is not wholly dead after all.
Even as a spirit, the hero is determined to remain in this world, and has set off to save the princesses from danger.
Now nothing more than a phantom, can the hero succeed in rescuing the kidnapped princesses?!
The hero met his end during his expedition?! Now nothing more than a phantom, can he succeed in rescuing the kidnapped princesses?!
The player must lead the two captive princesses through the castle, solving puzzles while escaping the Demon King’s castle. The choices the player makes will decide the princesses’ fates, and their own!
Guide the Princesses
Instruct the princesses and lead them to their escape! The hero has no physical body and so he can’t investigate things or solve puzzles on his own. He needs to ask the princesses to act for him.
—Find suspicious areas and get the princesses to check them out!
—The princesses then might acquire items or hints!
—Make use of that newly-found item or hint in dismantling traps, and find your way to escape!
Use Clues to Solve the Puzzle
Clues you find will be instrumental to disarming traps, and making your escape!
—There’s something on the wall that looks like a button, but what on earth…?
—This wooden box that won’t open, but there’s a very curious mark on it…!
—What happens if you line up the chess pieces…?
In order to get the princesses to escape, you’re gonna need to deal with a lot of traps and puzzles. But to solve them, you’re going to need to scour the room from top to bottom, and get all the items and hints! You, the hero, will have your cleverness tested at every turn!
Solve Puzzles with the Princesses
No touching, no glancing, and don’t get distracted! The princesses will have to “put themselves out there” if they want to solve the puzzles!
There are many traps which will require the princesses to get their hands, feet, just about every other part of them dirty! There’s a time limit for the puzzles, so you have to concentrate on the traps without getting distracted by the women in compromising positions before you! And forget about clicking on them! You all might enjoy it, but focus or they’ll scold you! So keep your eye on the prize, suppress the desire to interact with the princesses, and disarm those traps, just like a real savior of the world should! But the hero’s actions in this regard just might affect the fates of all three of you…
—Your eyes go one way, but your fingers go another!
—A bashful reaction…?!
You Can’t Take Your Eyes Off Them
There are many unavoidable distractions during your investigations.
You thought you’d just check the room, but there’s more to check out when they walk around… You’d have to blind yourself to avoid seeing them! What else can you do?
