Zero Time Dilemma

An unboxing video of the pre-order watch included with certain bundles of Zero Time Dilemma was uploaded to YouTube.

The watch, which is based on the watches that the characters in Zero Time Dilemma wear, was part of an early pre-order promotion for the game.

You can watch the video below.

About a year before Zero Time Dilemma came out, Aksys took pre-orders for a limited edition version of the game. The publisher hoped to hook up fans who put in an early reservation with a special watch. But due to watches being damaged in transit, no one has received the bonus item just yet.

Yesterday, Aksys shared an update about the situation Twitter. Replacement watches arrived in the warehouse, and they’ll now be going out to retailers. That means Amazon and GameStop should finally be able to send out the watches very soon.

The official tweet reads:

Thanks to Jake for the tip.


Polygon put up an hour of footage from one of this week’s releases, Zero Time Dilemma. Check out the full gameplay video below.

Zero Time Dilemma was showcased on the latest episode of Denjin Gacha. Check out some footage from the recording below.

Spike Chunsoft has prepared one more trailer to promote the Japanese launch of Zero Time Dilemma. Watch it below.

With Zero Time Dilemma releasing, series director Kotaro Uchikoshi has sent a message to the fans via Twitter. The full message, spread out over multiple tweets, reads:

Zero Time Dilemma was made by a small number of staff. I have seen them working very hard day after day within a limited time and asset. I am proud of them. And of course, I am proud of all the fans of ZE series. If there was no passionate action by all the fans, “June 28 in 2016” would become entirely different day from this timeline. I will say over and over again. You guys realized ZTD. The person who made ZTD is you. I really appreciate you. Thank you very much! Now, it’s time to decide. Will you play ZTD or not? The choice is yours.


Aksys Games held a promotion for Zero Time Dilemma that was planned to provide fans with a special watch if they pre-ordered at Amazon or GameStop. Unfortunately, we’re now hearing that they were damaged in transit.

So what does that mean? Aksys says that consumers will still receive the game, though watches won’t be available until a few weeks later. The publisher hopes to make it up to fans by providing a currently unspecified bonus.

Aksys posted on Twitter a little while ago:


With just a few days to go before Zero Time Dilemma launches, Spike Chunsoft has come out with a new trailer. We have it below.

Release date: June 28, 2016

To start our review, if you’re already a fan of the Zero Escape series, then I recommend that you stop reading beyond this paragraph. Zero Time Dilemma is very much a new Zero Escape game, despite some alterations to the formula. I won’t spoil anything in the review, but I do recommend going in knowing as little as possible if you can help it. If you enjoyed Zero Time Dilemma’s predecessors, then you’ll feel right at home here, even with the slightly revised formula.

Nintendo now an official page open for Zero Time Dilemma on its website. It reveals that Zero Time Dilemma has no 3D support, which we can also confirm personally (yes, we have the game, and you’ll see a review soon!).

As for the game’s file size, Zero Time Dilemma takes up 9,558 blocks. That amounts to 1194.75MB. If you’re in Japan, Zero Time Dilemma can be pre-loaded now.
