I need more Zero Escape on my dashboard.
Reblog if you’ve played 9 Hours, 9 Persons, 9 Doors or Virtue’s Last Reward and blog about it, and I’ll follow you.
Also reblog if you’ve played Ever 17. I basically need more Kotaro Uchikoshi on my dashboard.
I have to turn my life around and become a multi-millionaire so I can fund Zero Escape 3
Danganronpa's tributes to Zero Escape ⊟
I’m sure I’ve said it a bunch of times already, but if you liked the Zero Escape series, definitely try Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc for PS Vita.
We talked a lot about how the two Spike Chunsoft teams that worked on these two separate series riffed off each other in the latest TinyCast episode — that’s available to download now for Club Tiny’s Elite patrons. The public download/stream for that episode goes up tomorrow morning.
that is an actual quote from the game
Oh no, Virtue’s Last Reward/999's future is in doubt ⊟
I just presumed that Spike Chunsoft was well into development for the third Zero Escape game, but series director Kotaro Uchikoshi says the next sequel is in jeopardy. The problem is that while the franchise has a bit of popularity in the West, it hasn’t made a profit in Japan.
"I’m so sad, but all companies exist for profit-making purposes," Uchikoshi posted on Twitter earlier today. “If the profits can’t be expected, naturally, the project isn’t approved. We were not able to present a convincing reasonable basis to the managers. … I am very sorry to all the users who are expecting Zero Escape 3. I feel ashamed of my own inadequacies.”
He added that if circumstances change — say the next project he works on turns out to be a hit, or if someone generous steps in to finance Zero Escape 3's development — the game could still happen. Though his team looked into Kickstarter, they were not convinced that they would be able to pull off a successful campaign on that platform.
Uchikoshi continued, “I believe there is still hope. Zero Escape 3 will definitely be released somehow, someday! I will continue to seek a way out in cooperation with allies. So, I would appreciate it if you could wait until then. Thank you!”
