Review by Nanami.Alen:
Ikebukuro! One of the famous city in Japan. A center of fashion and of course, a place for otaku! You’re Miyoshi Yoshimune. You enrolled to Raira Academy recently and met Kida Masaomi, Sonohara Anri, and Mikado Ryuugamine soon enough, they became friends and enjoyed Ikebukuro a lot.
Soon enough, Miyoshi heard all the rumours of Ikebukuro. About the headless rider, the violent man with bartender suit, the dangerous information broker, and also, the legendary dollars. Of course, Miyoshi dismissed all of it until he saw one by one of the rumors appeared right in front of his own eyes.
3way standoff is a game where you will read the story of Durarara as Miyoshi, who basically a bystander who suddenly got dragged into the circle of troubles. Yoshi is a fun guy, and also easily to talk to anyone. Even /that/ Izaya ended up using him for things. This game allows you to walk around Ikebukuro, even using capsule machine to get figurine and also logged into the famous chats. At first, you will just make yourself comfortable in the city until you finally get caught between conflicts. You can choose whether you will be with Dollars, Yellow Scarves or maybe…something else?
Of course, you will meet all the casts of Durarara! Going to school with Mikado (Toyonaga Toshiyuki), Anri (Hanazawa Kana), and Masaomi (Miyano Mamoru). Hanging out with Shizuo (Ono Daisuke), Izaya (Kamiya Hiroshi), Shinra (Fukuyama Jun), Celty (Sawashiro Miyuki), Simon (Kuroda Takaya), even Kururi (Kanemoto Hisako) and Mairu (Kitamura Eri). Also, don’t forget Dotachin (Nakamura Yuichi), Walker (Kaji Yuuki), Saburo (Terashima Takuma) and Erika (Takagaki Ayahi). All the voice actors also present to bring the characters alive. Of course, you want to hear these characters talked like in the anime, right?
If you’re Durarara fan, you must play this game. This game gave you a new perspective, both about Ikebukuro and also about the people in it. Would you be Izaya’s ‘trusted ally’? Or will you decide to be with Shizuo instead? Whatever you decided, you should remember that your life won’t be ordinary and boring anymore!]
