Zero Escape: Zero Time Dilemma is the upcoming third and final installment of the Zero Escape trilogy.

Development

Due to the low popularity of the Zero Escape series in Japan, as well as budget and financial matters, the game was put on hold.[1]

Soon after, "Operation Bluebird" was created by fans, supporting the Zero Escape series, posting images of their Zero Escape collection, often with a message supporting Zero Escape 3.[2]

Kotaro Uchikoshi posted on February 17, 2014 "That matters are now under consideration".

During a week-long stretch from June 15-22, 2015, this game was the most anticipated game in the world according to fan voting on Most Anticipated Games.[3]

Zero Escape 3 was officially announced at Anime Expo 2015, a press release suggested a possible title for the game, Zero Time Dilemma. [4] Uchikoshi said that without fan support after 999, both Virtue's Last Reward and Zero Time Dilemma would have likely not been made.

Plot

"All of them... All six billion... Soon, I will have killed six billion people."

Diana to the Operator, about the dire situation in the facility

Nine people have been sent to the Mars Mission Test Site to simulate a manned mission to Mars. On December 31, 2028, the day the simulation was going to end, an unknown group (Most likely Free the Soul) hacks into an operator's video feed of the simulation and releases Radical-6 into the facility. All but 3 people die, the survivors being a woman (Diana) and two other unknown people (most likely Sigma and Phi). The woman contacts the operator, ominously saying that she killed the 6 people, and will likely kill 6 billion more people. This is presumably when Radical-6 escapes from the facility.

It is up to the Espers of Crash Keys to stop Radical-6 from escaping.

Gameplay

The game will have visual novel parts, as well as the "escape the room" segments. It is also unknown if this game will feature a Nonary Game. Zero Time Dilemma will feature multiple endings, although the exact number is unknown at this time.

    • I agree, this concept with the Nonary Game, could be used again and again, maybe next he'll make a Nonary Game Maker, like Super Mario Maker.
    • Hmm, I think a Spinoff is most likely. The main story should end on ZE3, but something related isn't impossible.
  • It's here.
