Back in July, Aksys Games announced the long-awaited third installment in the Zero Escape series, but at the time they were deliberately vague on the game’s details.

Thankfully, just in time for Halloween, the publisher has not only revealed the game’s title to be “Zero Time Dilemma” but also confirmed a release window, as detailed in the press release below:

“Building on the success of its predecessors, Nine Hours, Nine Persons, Nine Doors, and Virtue’s Last Reward, series mastermind Kotaro Uchikoshi has pulled out all the stops to deliver the most compelling and mind shredding gaming experience ever seen on a handheld platform. Choice is your only method of salvation and your only means of escape. How much of your humanity will you sacrifice to earn your freedom? As a new age of ruin looms large on the horizon, you must make impossible decisions and weather unimaginable consequences as you straddle the line between absolution and damnation. Plan your escape. Releasing Summer 2016 for both retail and digital in North America and digital only in Europe.”

So it looks like fans will be in for a very familiar experience going forward, with plenty of traps and dark choices awaiting them when the game hits the Nintendo 3DS in Summer 2016.
