    The director / writer behind such Visual Novel / Escape Room fare as Ever 17, Remember 11, and the Zero Escape series is coming to AX with, likely, a new game, at the Spike Chunsoft panel.

    He has previously teased what is likely this project, Project Psync.

    I'm still debating if I want to listen through the whole conference since I like to stay in the dark on Visual Novel type games, but the new Uchikoshi game was announced, as well as was a trailer for another Visual Novel (?) Yu-No, and a release date for 428 Shibuya Scramble (September 4th iirc?). 428 will have a demo this Summer.

    The Uchikoshi game's name is AI: The Somnium Files. It's got 3D models like Zero Time Dilemma, it's a detective game (male main character investigating murders), and it seems to have some alternate-reality / alt-dimension stuff going on in it (environment changes drastically)?

    For long time Uchikoshi, Zero Escape, and Infinity fans, some spoilerific meme stuff for past Uchikoshi games that came out of the conference:
