During a panel put on by Aksys Games during Anime Expo 2016, the company officially announced that the first two installments of the popular visual novel/puzzle series Zero Escape will be making their way to new platforms sometime soon.

After rumblings about possible PC ports for both 999 and Virtue’s Last Reward, Aksys has finally confirmed that they’ll both at least be ported soon. Though they did not specify which consoles the ports will be coming to, the recent release of Zero Time Dilemma (the last of the trilogy) on Steam further suggests that we’ll see the prior games on the service as well. It’s also possible that we’ll see a release of 999 on the Vita as well, so as to bring all three games together and available on both Vita and PC.
Last month, we reviewed Zero Time Dilemma, and thought it was a fantastic ending to the series. We also took some time to talk about the Zero Escape series as a whole, and made our case for why it’s worth caring about.
What do you think of this news? Will you be playing the Zero Escape series from the start on a new platform?
