Back in May, it was confirmed that 5pb.’s visual novel “YU-NO: A girl who chants love at the bound of this world” would be getting a North American release. Today, Numskull Games announced that they will publishing the game in Europe and Australia. The game will be released in these territories on October 4; the North American release date is October 1. The game will be getting both a physical and a digital version. There’s no word yet on the limited edition the North American market is receiving.

Head past the break for the full press release from Numskull Games:

Zero Escape started on DS a decade ago with Nine Hours, Nine Persons, Nine Doors. Virtue’s Last Reward continued the franchise on 3DS in 2012, followed by Zero Time Dilemma in 2016.

It’s now been three years since the last Zero Escape game. Kotaro Uchikoshi, the series’ director, has also moved on to work on the new IP AI: The Somnium Files. What does that mean for Zero Escape?

Uchikoshi appears to be open to working on the series once more. In an interview with Japanator, he said: “If the fans desire it, there’s always a possibility.” That’s not definitive by any means, but perhaps we could see a fourth entry in the future.
