Level-5 Pulls Playable Mystery Room From TGS

Long awaited Atamania title relegated to video-only status.

Level-5's Mystery Room. Screenshots were provided last year at the game's announcement.

Games are usually added to exhibit lists leading up to the start of the Tokyo Game Show. But those unconventional types at Level-5 are taking the reverse approach: they're removing games. Well, one game at least.

DS puzzle adventure game Mystery Room will no longer appear in playable form at TGS, Level-5 has announced. Although originally listed as a playable game, it will now be video-only. Level-5's notice did not give a reason for the change of plans.

Mystery Room is the third unique entry in Level-5's "Atamania" puzzle series. The game was first announced at the 2009 Level-5 Vision press conference and shown in video form at last year's TGS. You can read everything that was announced about the game last year here.

The game's official site still lists a 2010 release time frame.

Even without Mystery Room, Level-5 still has a pretty hefty lineup, lead by Ni no Kuni (PS3) and Danbol Senki (PSP) making their long awaited playable debuts. The company also has a "secret" title on the way for the show. It's possible that this is Wii's Inazuma Eleven Strikers, which got a spread in the latest issue of Coro Coro Comics.
