New gameplay for Zero Escape 3: Zero Time Dilemma showcases main characters in a face off with the game’s antagonist.

Spike Chunsoft have released a short clip of gameplay from the upcoming psychological horror/thriller title in which the main characters of the game are engaged in some sort of showdown with series staple antagonist – Zero.

I’m not going to lie – I don’t speak Japanese so it’s a little bit tricky for me to follow what is going on here, but one thing I will say is that I am a big fan of the new cinematic approach the series seems to be going for, the multiple camera angles definitely add to the tension and seem to make for a more dynamic experience. Just take a look for yourself.

From what we know Zero Time Dilemma seems to be thematically similar to the previous titles in the series. The main characters are trapped in a death game of which the only way out is to solve a series of fiendishly difficult ‘escape the room’ type puzzles.

With the passwords gained from solving the passwords the players are allowed to progress, however the twist this time around is that each time a password is gained a character must die! Sounds intriguing!

So my friends, what do you think of this tiny slice of what we can expect from Zero Escape: Zero Time Dilemma? Are you a fan of the new look or would you have preferred the game to stick to its more traditional visual novel roots? Sound off in the comments below to let us know! And for all things Zero Escape – keep it locked right here at The Vita Lounge!

Zero Escape 3: Zero Time Dilemma will be released for PS Vita in North America physically and digitally and in Europe digitally only on June 28th 2016.
