    The long wait is over! The final game in the series has finally been announced after what seems like an eternity for fans who have been waiting with bated breath. I know I'm certainly excited. How about you guys?

    Coming Summer 2016

    From an Aksys PR email, it has been announced for the 3DS and Vita. Fully voiced cinematics and dual audio. Somewhat of a spoiler:

    I actually had the post already written before it was announced. Just had to add the source, picture, and release date.

    If possible, I'd recommend waiting until a month or two before the game releases. The story can get rather complicated, and if it was fresh in your mind, it'd be easier to follow. That's why a couple weeks before it releases I'm gonna plow through the first two again. With a pen and paper for notes/theories.

    Well that's fantastic. Instant purchase for me. I'll probably do what I did last time and buy it digitally and physically.

    Hopefully without huge game-breaking memory leaks this time...

    I do recall several people claiming this game would never come for various reasons. I guess this means I have to play VLR finally, though I already finished 999 (one hell of a game btw).

    I haven't even played VLR, and they're already making a third one. Damn I'm slow.

    To be fair, it really shouldn't have. The series sold like shit in Japan, to the point where the developer/publisher flat-out said they wouldn't do the third game; the writer couldn't or wouldn't crowdfund it. That was a year and a half ago, and the only real outcry was from outside of Japan. I'm kind of wondering what kind of arrangement got made, as the announcement actually came through the North American publisher (and the writer, who was there as a guest), rather than Spike/Chunsoft, although dual audio at least indicates it's going to be released in Japan as well.

    Is 2015 the year of vaporware?

    I don't see how you can call ZE3 vaporware, considering it was announced just today... unless you're talking about in the future, where you believe it will be cancelled. But don't even mention that.

    999: 9 Hours, 9 Persons, 9 Doors > Zero Escape: Virtue's Last Reward > Zero Escape 3.
    The first 2 were absolutely amazing and I imagine the third won't disappoint. Looking forward to it.

    You could actually wait for the 3rd to come out before playing the 2nd one, it ends with a mega cliffhanger...

    A cliffhanger that would have made it ridiculously depressing if the third game hadn't been made.

    Hey, I found the right thread! ..finally.

    I honestly waited for it to come to Kickstarter. But this is great, too!

    I was also afraid they would release ZE3 on IOS/Android to cut cost, so it's 2 very good news in one for me ^-^
