The Japanese work of Battle Royale

Before the popularization of Battle Royale games, since 1999 there has been a Japanese novel with exactly that title. If you don't know, the term was originally used by Romans in their battles with more than 3 people.

The Battle Royale novel that in Japanese is Batoru Rowaiaru [バトル・ロワイアル] was written by Koushun Takami and was completed as early as 1996. For several years this work yielded manga, films and almost had an American series on the CW.

The work shows a fictional Japan where young students are sent to an isolated island with collars and weapons in order to kill themselves until one survives. This work served as inspiration for future works and even games of the same style.

In this manga / novel the battle is televised in a Program, where high school students need to kill themselves until only one remains in 3 days, otherwise everyone will be killed. Creating even more tension.
