Last year, Zero Escape: Virtue’s Last Reward director Kotaro Uchikoshi said that a third game in the series wasn’t happening at the time due to budget constraints. It looks like money isn’t too much of a problem now as Aksys Games has announced Zero Escape Volume 3 for the PlayStation Vita and Nintendo 3DS. Revealed during the Anime Expo in LA, the game is scheduled for release in summer 2016.
In a press release, Aksys Games said that Zero Escape 3 will feature “familiar faces, fully voiced cinematics, multiple endings, and voices in both Japanese and English.” The studio further announced at the expo that the game is being localized for the West alongside the development of the Japanese version.
Aksys Games is teasing some intense puzzle solving, asking players to “put extensive effort” into improving their skills as they are “vital to your survival.”
