But the wait might be a while, says Uchikoshi.

The third game in the Zero Escape series, which includes 999: Nine Persons, Nine Hours, Nine Doors and Zero Escape: Virtue’s Last Reward, is in the works, according to game director Kotaro Uchikoshi.

Uchikoshi has been sharing first details about the game with fans on Twitter.

(Warning: The following content should be considered spoilers for those who have not played 999 and Virtue’s Last Reward.)

“Junpei will appear as a participant in the next game,” he said in one update.

“Of course, Phi [will] appear,” he said in another. “But [the] REAL Luna… has not been made yet in the 3rd. The original should appear.”

In a third update, he confirmed Junpei will appear “as a young figure” again.

But the wait for part three might be long. “Sorry,” he tweeted. “Plz wait a while.”

Zero Escape: Virtue’s Last Reward, the second game in the series, launched for 3DS and PS Vita on February 16 in Japan and on October 23 in North America.

    Great! I’m looking forward to this. I just hope localization doesn’t take another 8 months to complete…

    This is what I like to hear… though I’ll have to steer clear of the details as I’ve yet to play my copy of VLR.

    Ok…I want to read this. But I’m currently playing Virtue’s Last Reward, so I might just want to wait until I get all the endings. I did see that Junpei returns so I’m glad, but then I saw “Phi” on the next paragraph and I jumped all the way down here to avoid spoilers like a ninja :3

      I hope you enjoy it.

      • FaithlessMr

        Loving every second :D

    I knew this was coming. I won’t explain why because of spoilers.

  • PrinceHeir

    GET HYPE!!!!!!!

  • Hatsuaki

    Games like these one are always welcome!~

  • All of these are pretty obvious if you play the game. He’s not really revealing anything surprising.

  • Perfect! I fell in love with this series about 4 months ago, so the idea of another game is awesome. I just hope that the localization doesn’t take forever!

  • It’s probably going to be a long wait because he’s working on the Stein;Gate sequel right now as well. I’d be fine with this if it wasn’t for the fact we probably won’t see an overseas release of that, at least not for a long time.

    What about Sigma and his cat tic, and fetish for bathing suits!? He’s my favorite character in the series (*spoiler*: the young version at least).BTW, *still a spoiler* was he 67 throughout all the routes? With all of his perverted antics that would be rather awkward.
