Zero Escape: The Nonary Games Available On Xbox & PC Game Pass; Release Trailer

Publisher Spike Chunsoft has announced that Zero Escape: The Nonary Games is now available on Xbox One and Windows 10. Further, it is currently playable via both Game Pass platform services. For those who wish to purchase the 2-in-1 package, it is $29.99.

This release contains Nine Hours, Nine Persons, Nine Doors, and Virtue’s Last Reward, both stellar visual novels where players find themselves having to escape, well, escape rooms. Both titles are critically acclaimed for their remarkable narratives, branching story paths, endearing casts, and inventive puzzle design requiring thought-provoking solutions.

Nine Hours, Nine Persons, Nine Doors is best played first, as characters and elements of its narrative directly tie into the events of Virtue’s Last Reward. Additionally of note is that this release of Nine Hours, Nine Persons, Nine Doors includes full voice acting in English and Japanese, which was a bonus initially exclusive to the PlayStation 4 release.

Alongside this announcement, a brief release trailer was shared, viewable below:
