The Zero Escape series of puzzle-based visual novels has become well known for the games’ excellent storytelling, convoluted mysteries, and crazy plot twists. They’ve had some suspenseful moments, and it sounds like those moments of intensity will only be more frequent in the upcoming Zero Escape 3. Creator Kotaro Uchikoshi recently sat down with the Anime News Network to discuss his series, and, when asked what might be new for fans in Z3, he replied that it “is going to be a lot more suspenseful.”
What can you tell us about Zero Escape 3? What will be new for fans they may not be expecting?
Response: Z3 is going to be a lot more suspenseful and there’s going to be a lot of life-threatening stories in terms of plot. I want to tell you more but my manager right there is going to get mad at me, so… (laughs)
It’s a shame that Uchikoshi couldn’t say anything more, but even that little tidbit is intriguing. There were numerous moments in the first two games that had me on the edge of my seat, and plenty of times where it really looked like the protagonists were going to die. To hear that such moments will be happening even more frequently in the third entry has got me really excited.
