Zero Escape 3 for PS Vita and 3DS Gets First Story Details and Artwork: Ending Is “Out of this World”

on July 4, 2015 7:38 PM

Yesterday Zero Escape 3 Game Director Kotaro Uchikoshi announced that the game is in development, and today he shared a bit more information during a panel at Anime Expo in Los Angeles.

Uchikoshi-san mentioned the following points (courtesy of Twitter user Justin Mikos):

  • 4infinity means Mars Infinity.
  • The leaked words on the 4infinity website four months ago were just a test. Fans should disregard them.
  • Zero Escape 3 will take place in a base where people train to go to Mars.
  • Development just started.
  • Fan enthusiasm encouraged reevaluation of Zero Escape 3 and allowed it to enter production.
  • In previous games Uchikoshi-san wanted people to question common sense. In this game he wants gamers to question their own values.
  • Puzzle creation will be done by Uchikoshi-san’s staff.
  • Danganronpa writer Kazutaka Kodaka (who was present at the panel as well) knows the ending of Zero Escape 3 and said it is “out of this world.” It inspired him to be less lazy. He exchanges ideas with Uchikoshi-san often.
  • Kodaka-san would like to team up with Uchikoshi-san and make a game together.

A piece of artwork for the game was also showcased, and you can see it below:

Hailing from sunny (not as much as people think) Italy and long standing gamer since the age of Mattel Intellivision and Sinclair ZX Spectrum. Definitely a multi-platform gamer, he still holds the old dear PC nearest to his heart, while not disregarding any console on the market. RPGs (of any nationality) and MMORPGs are his daily bread, but he enjoys almost every other genre, prominently racing simulators, action and sandbox games. He is also one of the few surviving fans of the flight simulator genre on Earth.
