By Ishaan . October 19, 2012 . 11:20am

Aksys have released the 13-minute OVA for Zero Escape: Virtue’s Last Reward that recounts the beginning of the game and goes over each of its characters, dubbed in English. Produced by Studio Gonzo, we shared the Japanese version of this OVA late last year. Take a look at the English version below:



Zero Escape: Virtue’s Last Reward will be available on October 23rd for the Nintendo 3DS and PlayStation Vita in North America. Europe gets the game in November.

    Great job casting Aksys! A large portion of the voice actors sound like they’re from Persona, in fact I believe Troy Baker is voicing Sigma here. 

  • The OVA is a great appetizer to the main course of Zero Escape: Virtue’s Last Reward that is shipping to stores this Tuesday, 10/23 :D!

    • Barrylocke89

      GEH, it’s coming so soon. And me without a 3DS! I need to get on that.

    • LunarKnite

      T_T I just got an e-mail from Amazon saying that I won’t be getting the pre-order bonus? I preordered the game back in June… Can’t wait, regardless but, man, I wanted that watch.

      • Quinton Cunningham

        You had to re-order it with that specific version, IIRC.

        • LunarKnite

          No, they just reneged on what they promised. Those who preordered before the preorder bonus was even announced were supposed to get one, but I guess with the limited quantity of watches, they couldn’t give it to those who had preordered beforehand.

          • Quinton Cunningham

            Was not aware of that. My bad.

        • Margaret Chan

          Both Aksys and Amazon CS had assured people who made preorders before Sept 17th that they would receive the pre order bonus editions.

    • SteveThompson1

      Ever think about turning 999 into an anime? I’d love to watch it.

  • warning, playing this series will make every VN you play after it a huge disappointment

  • Zonic505

    Oh no, first Vincent had to deal with those nightmares, now he has to deal with being kidnapped by Makoto Nanaya! & he dragged his friend Orlando into it again!

    Hoping to hear Troy Baker in the game. Did a good job with Sigma, along with everyone else & their voice acting.

  • Quinton Cunningham

    I wish Amazon had release date delivery for this. I don’t wanna wait til Saturday to play. =(

  • seriously? they payed the worst anime studio out there to make an animated short for something that i really care? i guess i just have to tolerate gonzo’s low quality generic cheapness again..

  • Blaze Townsend

    Sounds like Dio’s voice actor played a part in Catherine as well…

  • nirvana123

    Since its almost here what version is everyone getting ? Im getting the ads version because i now have a bigger screen due to my xl and I’m so used to playing 999 on a ds ( favorite ds game).

    •  I’m getting the Vita version. The ability to take screenshots on a PS Vita is pretty cool, so that was the only deciding factor.

    • Blaze Townsend

      I’m getting the Vita version as well. I like the cleaner look of the OLED screen. Already played the demo and it looks good.

    • I’m going for the 3DS version simply because I don’t have a Vita just yet. And because I have 999 for the DS, somehow it makes sense for me to play the sequel on the 3DS, with a similar layout.

    • Julien_N

      Not having a Vita and having played 999 on my 3DS, I’ll get the 3DS version. The dual screen set-up is more interesting than the crisper image to me. (And it is always easier to buy games for a system you already own)

    • Quinton Cunningham

      3DS, because I already have 999 and I’ve got the original art version.

    • Vita version eventhough I don’t have a Vita yet and I have a 3DS, lol.

  • MrTyrant


    There goes my argument for seeing a good ova.

  • I already preordered my copy at I can’t wait to play it, watching this (again, since I already watched the original japanese OVA many times before) made me want this even more.

    So good :D

  • Julien_N

    This is a nice attention from Aksys to translate and dub this OVA, thanks a lot!
    Zero the Third’s voice is so crazy, it fits it a lot.

  • Levin_Scorpius

    So… Troy Baker is Sigma. I think Karen Strassman is Phi, Laura Bailey is Luna, Erin Fitzgerald is Quark, Liam O’Brien is Dio, and I have no clue who anyone else is. Anyone recognize anyone else?

  • Detrimont

    too bad i can’t get the dubbed version, guess i’ll have to wait til i get a vita so i can order the us version. still getting the PAL 3DS version though

  • Troy Baker is sex!

  • PreyMantis

    Amazing dub. I can’t wait. My wallet will be empty. I’m typing. I will be eating tacos. Tacos. TACOS!!!!!!!!!!!
