Aksys PR - The Secret is Out... Zero Escape Volume 3 Confirmed (coming to 3DS)

Many government organizations have dismissed our urgent warnings regarding the upcoming game event called Zero Time Dilemma. Recent intelligence has escalated our plans and we have come to the decision to contact gamers about the dangers directly. Our ultimate goal has always been to protect the public from the horrific consequences we have foreseen, but it appears our mission to prevent it from occurring may have failed. It is imperative that you make every effort to prepare yourselves for the oncoming deadly game, so that you may survive the coming apocalypse.

An antidote for the game is predicted to be created, but much further down this timeline, and as such there is no defense from its effects. It will be most easily identifiable on Nintendo 3DS™ and PlayStation®Vita handheld entertainment system, though it is transmittable through the air so the spread may increase even more rapidly through the PlayStation®Store and Nintendo eShop.

Do not be tempted by familiar faces, fully voiced cinematics, multiple endings, or voices in both Japanese and English, as those are signs that the apocalypse is nigh. We suggest that you put extensive effort into improving your puzzle solving skills, as they will be vital to your survival.

We at Crash Keys beg for your assistance in notifying everyone you can so that no one is left in the dark about this dangerous game. The world will end up in a tumultuous uproar, and ultimate consequences will be unavoidable unless word gets out. Use all the time available to you before the summer of next year to contact your loved ones and prepare; our intelligence hasn’t been able to focus in on an exact date at this time. Do not fear – we are here to protect you and prepare you to our utmost ability so that you may survive. You will survive. We will use all channels available to contact you with updates as soon as we uncover them. You must be ready.

Zero Escape 3 in development, due out Summer next year (UPDATE)

UPDATE - Confirmed for 3DS

This is coming from the Aksys panel, but we don't have all the details yet. We hope that with the first two entries coming to Nintendo portables, the third installment will do the same.

A look at how that SNES Playstation prototype resurfaced

This info comes from a Polygon interview with Dan Diebold, the man who found the SNES Playstation prototype...

- Terry Diebold, Dan's father, worked as a maintenance man at a company called Advanta Corporation from 2000 to 2009
- Olaf Olafsson was president of Advanta
- Olafsson is also the former CEO of Sony Interactive Entertainment
- in 2009, Advanta filed for bankruptcy
- the company ordered Diebold to clean out office rooms and throw stuff away
- in one room was a box with the SNES Playstation prototype

The system had a game cart and CD with it, but it's missing a power cord. Terry is planning on getting a cord and firing up the prototype to see if it works.

Soundtrack for unreleased DS game surfaces

Mr. Stocker doesn't mention what the game was or who worked on it, out of respect to whoever owns the rights as of now. I guess we'll just have to enjoy the soundtrack on its own!
