The First Two Zero Escape Games Coming to Other Platforms

The first two games in acclaimed visual novel series Zero Escape are coming to new platforms, according to a recent announcement.

The news was revealed during a panel during this year’s Anime Con, by series creator Kotaro Uchikoshi and publisher Aksys Games (via. Gematsu). The porting platforms weren’t directly mentioned, although given the recent PC, Vita and 3DS release of the series’ latest entry – Zero Time Dilemma – we might expect its two prerequisites to be appearing on those platforms too.

The Zero Escape trilogy is a series of visual novels that plunge players into the boots of an ill-fortuned kidnappee, trapped with a group of hapless others in the middle of a twisted game. The games are known for their dark premise and unique puzzle-solving elements.

The first game, Nine Persons, Nine Hours, Nine Doors (more commonly known as 999), originally released in Japan for the DS in 2009, followed by a western release in 2010. 999 has since been ported onto iOS systems, so perhaps we’ll be seeing a PC and Vita release in the near future.

The sequel, Virtue’s Last Reward on the other hand, released in 2012 for 3DS and Vita. Again, a PC release seems most likely.

Though porting was announced to be “in progress”, a specific release date has yet to be revealed. As captured on Twitter by @VaguelyHorrible, Aksys Games revealed some images of the 999 port. You can see them here.
