Zero Escape: Virtue's Last Reward is set to release next week in North America, and publisher Aksys Games has taken the opportunity to release the game's anime prologue.

Dubbed in English, the video reveals how main character Sigma was kidnapped, and how he must work together with eight other captives to escape the Nonary Game, hosted by a rather eccentric rabbit avatar named Zero III.

Zero Escape is a sequel to the cult-hit 999: Nine Hours, Nine Persons, Nine Doors, and is set to deliver a 'lethal dose' of escape the room puzzles and a thrilling story. With 24 different endings, multiple difficulty levels, and fully voiced dialogue, Zero Escape is looking to one-up its predecessor in about every way.
