Zero Escape 3 for PS Vita and 3DS Gets First Story Details and Artwork | DualShockers

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:


Digimon Story Cyber Sleuth is coming to North America ⊟

Wow! Announced at Anime Expo, Namco Bandai will release Digimon Story Cyber Sleuth in North America, physically on PS4 and digitally on PS Vita, next year.

Even if, like me, you can’t name a single Digimon, and aren’t even sure if the creatures are actually referred to as Digimon, there might be a reason to check this out. Reviews were across the board positive, and the pedigree (Wild ARMS dev Media Vision, No More Heroes/Danganronpa composer Masafumi Takada) is totally solid. Plus it just looks like cyber-Persona.

Zero Escape Volume 3 announced for PS Vita, 3DS - Gematsu

Aksys Games has announced Zero Escape 3 for PS Vita and 3DS. It’s due out in summer 2016.

ATTENTION PEOPLE OF THE WORLD: Japanese Adventure Game Strain Zero Escape Unavoidable

Undisclosed Location – July 3, 2015

Many government organizations have dismissed our urgent warnings regarding the upcoming game event called Zero Time Dilemma. Recent intelligence has escalated our plans and we have come to the decision to contact gamers about the dangers directly. Our ultimate goal has always been to protect the public from the horrific consequences we have foreseen, but it appears our mission to prevent it from occurring may have failed. It is imperative that you make every effort to prepare yourselves for the oncoming deadly game, so that you may survive the coming apocalypse.

An antidote for the game is predicted to be created, but much further down this timeline, and as such there is no defense from its effects. It will be most easily identifiable on Nintendo 3DS™ and PlayStation®Vita handheld entertainment system, though it is transmittable through the air so the spread may increase even more rapidly through the PlayStation®Store and Nintendo eShop.

Do not be tempted by familiar faces, fully voiced cinematics, multiple endings, or voices in both Japanese and English, as those are signs that the apocalypse is nigh. We suggest that you put extensive effort into improving your puzzle solving skills, as they will be vital to your survival.

We at Crash Keys beg for your assistance in notifying everyone you can so that no one is left in the dark about this dangerous game. The world will end up in a tumultuous uproar, and ultimate consequences will be unavoidable unless word gets out. Use all the time available to you before the summer of next year to contact your loved ones and prepare; our intelligence hasn’t been able to focus in on an exact date at this time. Do not fear – we are here to protect you and prepare you to our utmost ability so that you may survive. You will survive. We will use all channels available to contact you with updates as soon as we uncover them. You must be ready.

Code: Realize otome coming to PS Vita in North America this fall - Gematsu

Aksys Games is bringing Idea Factory and Design Factory’s otome/visual novel game Code: Realize ~Guardian of Rebirth~ to PS Vita in North America this fall, the publisher announced.

Here’s the rundown, via the PlayStation Blog:

Restricted to an abandoned mansion on the outskirts of London in fulfillment of a promise to her father, lonely Cardia lives day to day isolated from the world. Her body carries a deadly poison that rots or melts anything her skin touches, prompting the locals to call her a “monster.”

Her last conversation with her father two years ago, telling her to stay out of sight and never fall in love, is the furthest back she can remember. One day, her quiet solitude is interrupted as the Royal Guards break in to capture her. It is then that Cardia meets Arsène Lupin, a chivalrous thief, who helps her escape the soldiers’ clutches. She soon finds herself on a journey with Lupin to locate her father, who holds the answers to her mysterious condition. The two are soon joined by four more interesting and handsome gentlemen…

Players will take on the role of a young woman whose poisonous touch means imminent death. You’ll unravel the secrets of her past with the help of five charming guys, including literary figures like Arsène Lupin, Abraham Van Helsing, Victor Frankenstein, Impey Barbicane, and Count Saint-Germain.

View the first English screenshots at the gallery.

[Update: It will be released digitally in Europe]

Mighty no. 9 out in month no. 9 with a physical release (but not on handhelds yet..) ⊟

Comcept is partnering with Deep Silver on a physical release of Mighty no. 9, which includes bonus DLC and multiple spoken language options. The physical and downloadable releases – for Wii U, Xbox 360/One, PlayStation ¾, and PC – will be out September 15 in the US and September 18 elsewhere.

The physical release is different from the one Kickstarter backers have, and will be out simultaneously on everything but 3DS and Vita… “The handheld versions were originally meant to be simpler ports, but we found that the amount of work necessary exceeded our expectations—the 3DS and Vita versions will actually require remaking the game from the ground up. Because of this development, the handheld versions will be released after the other versions.”

The Misadventures of Tron Bonne on PSN ⊟

Well, I heard about the ESRB rating for this, but didn’t know it had actually come out yesterday until Jeremy Parish mentioned it. The Misadventures of Tron Bonne, the Mega Man Legends spinoff, is now out on PlayStation Network for PSP, PS Vita, and PlayStation 3. 

It’s my favorite Mega Man game! It’s also the only Mega Man game where you alternately destroy villages with a walking robot and serve curry to hungry Servbots (as seen in this image from obscurevideogames.) I love it. And now it’s $6 instead of whatever awful price you’d have to pay on eBay!
