A seemingly new entry in the Re: Zero series has been listed on Amazon UK for Nintendo Switch. This game, called Re: Zero – The Prophecy of the Throne, is apparently being published by Spike Chunsoft and it mentions that it is “a new Re: Zero storyline.”

Among the story for the game, the listing also includes that it will be fully voiced in English and Japanese and will feature brand new characters from the series creator. 

Nothing has been confirmed as of yet, so please take this announcement with a grain of salt. The complete details for the listing are below: 

Kotaro Uchikoshi’s newest game, AI: The Somnium Files, landed on Switch last year. Prior to that title, he worked on the trilogy of Zero Escape titles. Those releases are spread out across the DS and 3DS.

Could the three Zero Escape games find their way to Switch? Uchikoshi at least has interest. In an interview with Gamereactor, Uchikoshi said he hopes it happens.

Nine Hours, Nine Persons, Nine Doors debuted on DS a decade ago. We then saw Virtue’s Last Reward on 3DS in 2012 followed by Zero Time Dilemma in 2016.
