February 7, 2008
L The Prologue to Death Note: Spiraling Trap is the third in a series of Death Note video games. It was released in Japan on February 7, 2008. To date there is no release outside of Japan. The story is set before the Kira investigation depicted in the original manga.
The player assumes the role of a rookie FBI agent who is knocked out during an undercover investigation. The player wakes up in a strange hotel and tries to escape despite the various traps laid out throughout the building. The genius detective L provides help in the escape via a fictional in-game PDA, and the player feeds L information that is gathered throughout the hotel and outside. The software also includes a separate "L Communicator" mode in which users can make friends with L by giving him sweets. If the user succeeds in making friends with L, L will "talk" with the user via voice.
