Aksys-4infinity-Teaser-Site.jpg

Aksys Games, the game studio known for many japanese games, among others arguably the most popular ones, Nine Hours, Nine Persons, Nine Doors and Virtues Last Reward, has opened the teaser website 4infinity.co, which displays the numbers "0303". After digging further in the source code of the site, NeoGAF users discovered the following images:

teaser-2.jpg


This opens up speculation towards what next game is being teased. User have found out that the first image anagrams to:

"Meet my leader Phi no escape."

Some NeoGAF moderators who might know something seem to be hinting at Zero Escape 3. Either way the general consensus towards this is that it actually is a teaser for Zero Escape 3, a continuation of Zero Escape 2: Virtues Last Reward.

Now before people start screaming in joy, please recall that Kotaro Uchikoshi, the writer of the Zero Espace series, announced with a heavy heart via Twitter one year ago that Zero Escape 3 probably won't happen due to the lacking commercial success of the Zero Escape series in Japan. Since then, no announcements have been made regarding the future of the series.

Could it be that the writer of the Zero Escape series is writing the story of another infinity game???
(I know it's highly unlikely but still, one can dream).

It's also possible ZE is actually an Infinity game. Wouldn't be a stretch, since Uchikoshi (I think) pretty much confirmed in his VLR interview that
It was Blickwinkel whom Akane was talking to at the end of VLR.

As much as I'd like this game to be ZE3, a lot of people seem to think it's either Yandere Hell, or a Punchline game, since Uchikoshi is the writer for that anime.

EDIT: Just noticed that the font for 999's new boxart seems like it would match those numbers as well.

Really wish the internet would stop getting my hopes up about ZE3. Seriously, I'd take a cancellation of just about any game currently in development (including MGSV, either Fire Emblem game, even Star Fox U or Persona 5) if it meant getting an actual conclusion.

It will certainly be a surprise if we get ZE3, even if it is a novel or manga series :) I wonder if the series is really all that popular in the states though and also how PSN+ works for game devs, since virtue's last reward was free on PSN way back.

Just an FYI, it now says 0302 on the teaser site. So it seems to be a countdown after all, and it's possible the reveal will be in just 2 more days. If not, maybe 9, assuming the counter goes back to 3 after hitting 0, and the 3 drops to 2. Also, one thing I just thought of is that what if this is a reveal for a port of 999? Wouldn't surprise me if they ported the iOS version to Android.

They won't set up an own site to hype a mere Android port of an already available iOS game (which fyi is a cutted version of a DS game).

It doesn't have to be Android though. What if it's a port for 3DS and/or Vita? I can actually see them porting the at least the DS version for Vita, just so that Vita will also have access to the first game..

Nope, it won't be a port. Aksys isn't the developer, Spike Chunsoft is. And as mentioned, Zero Escape failed commercially in Japan, so why would Chunsoft waste time and money into a port?

What bug? I never heard about that.

Virtue's Last Reward PEC Room. Basically, if you save in the Pressure Exchange Room (during the escape sequence) there's a high chance you can say goodbye to your save file (if you're playing on a 3DS, the Vita version is unaffected).

Oh that hurts. Is the bug patched now?

Well, it's not like Aksys can't obtain permission or something from SC to develop their own game or port, seeing as ZE fares a lot better here in the West. I mean, just look at Contra 4 for example. Konami gave development of the game to WayForward, despite WayForward never touching the series before (as far as I'm aware at least). It's not to say this is ZE related, just throwing possibilities out there. It may even be possible that Uchikoshi somehow managed to change SC's mind about the ZE series and this is a simul-announcement.
