First, I appreciate from the bottom of my heart to the users who played 999 or VLR. Thank you very much! I have received the messages of encouragement or cheer from many users so far. I am really glad and happy. I offer my deepest thanks!

Well... I guess you have been curious about ZE3.

In conclusion, unfortunately, I have to say that it is difficult to realize it "at this stage" yet, although we have done all we can. If possible, I'd not like to inform you of the news like this. But I decided to reveal it honestly. A lot of budget is needed to make ZE series. We have to persuade the managers in order to obtain it. The managers know that ZE series is especially valued by many users outside Japan. Some of them think that they want to make a sequel just as we wish. But, "in Japan", 999 and VLR are in the red. They are not selling more than people think.

I'm so sad, but all the companies exist for profit-making purposes. If the profits can't be expected, naturally, the project isn't approved. We were not able to present a convincing reasonable basis to the managers. Of course, I can declare with confidence, "The next title will certainly get into the black!" However, it's not considered that the word have credibility. It does not become the cause of green light.

I am very sorry to all the users who are expecting ZE3. I feel ashamed of my own inadequacies. BUT! please remember. I wrote "at this stage". If the situation changes, ZE3 might be capable of being realized! I still haven't given up. For example, if the title which I make next bring about a good result, the wind might shift to another direction. Or, if someone with executive ability (financer, producer, publisher or millionaire!) propose the investment, everything could go well. If there is an great investor who thinks "Virtue is its own reward", I wish him/her to send me a message. If you know such a wonderful person, please induce him/her to cooperate. By using Facebook, you can send a direct message to me (Although we also examined crowd-funding like Kick Starter, we figured the idea is not quite persuasive enough...) I believe there is still hope. ZE3 will definitely be released somehow, someday! I will continue to seek a way out in cooperation with Allies. So, I would appreciate it if you could wait until then. Thank you!

This really sucks. ZE2 ended on a cliffhanger and now we have to wait who knows how long for the ending. I also don't know why he doesn't want to do a Kickstarter. How expensive could these games be to make? Anyway, I hope this doesn't become the next Shenmue III.

Dammit, Japan! No More Heroes and (apparently) Zero Escape are good games! Why you no buy them?

Me too. I'm not really pleased with how he handled VLR. 999 was a perfect story that didn't need a sequel. VLR was a continuation of the story but it wasn't necessary to get the full story in 999. However, VLR was set up so that you need to play the sequel to fully understand the story. He shouldn't have done that if he wasn't sure he'd even be able to do a sequel.

I'm still fairly confident we'll get ZE3, I'm just worried that it will take a long time and that his original vision of the story will be compromised.

Welp, nothing left to do but to stay faithful and wait patiently

I mean, look how long it took for Kingdom Hearts 3 to be announced after KH2.

An interview with Uchikoshi just went up. It doesn't say anything new about the ZE3 situation, but it does hint that he's working on the narrative for games outside of the visual novel genre. Maybe he's better off doing that since visual novels are a niche genre.

Do Spike Chunsoft even make shooters? It will probably be a mystery dungeon game or something.

Uchikoshi hasn't given up on crowdsourcing yet. He asked about his options on Twitter because you apparently can't start a Kickstarted project in Japan. Someone recommended him IndieGoGo though which works internationally so I guess he's looking into it. Of course both Spike Chunsoft and Aksys have to be on board for it to work.

Wait, this is by Spike Chunsoft?

The twats that made Budokai Tenkaichi 3 and then ran it down the drain with Raging Blast Ultimate Tenkaichi, and then made a shitty Attack on Titan Game on 3DS but still do amazing VN-Type games like Trigger Happy Havoc?
The same Spike Chunsoft who made the original 6 (or so) Dragon Quest games, yet developed a sequel the Wii Play?

Holy shit it is
