[Update: Seriously guys? Complaining that news of the hero from the first game returning for the third game is a spoiler? I don't think you know what a spoiler is.]
If you've played through Zero Escape: Virtue's Last Reward -- and if you haven't, what's wrong with you? -- you'll know that it ends on a major cliffhanger. A third installment was always inevitable, but it's still nice to see series director / writer Kotaro Uchikoshi address it directly.
A few days ago, Uchikoshi answered a few questions on Twitter regarding the next Zero Escape episode. The details don't reveal much beyond what we already assumed following VLR's ending, but I wouldn't visit his Twitter page or the Tiny Cartridge link below if you haven't played VLR yet. Minor or possibly major spoilers and all that.
I will say that several characters will return for the third Nonary Game and leave it at that. Visit the link (at your own risk) to learn who exactly.
