Participant 8, a character in the upcoming third entry of the Zero Escape series, has been revealed on game’s pseudo in-world Twitter account.
Revealed last night, the penultimate participant has been added to the line up of characters whose identities are largely unknown. Aside from a few returning faces the true identities of these characters is still yet to be seen.
For the uninformed, Zero Escape is a series of Visual Novel, Escape the Room puzzle games for the DS, 3DS and PlayStation Vita. The two cult hits, directed by Kotaro Uchikoshi, have gained a large fan-base with the third in the series (Zero Time Dilemma) release this summer.

A few fans have speculated that this character in particular could be Lotus from the first game in the series (999: 9 Hours, 9 Persons, 9 Doors) returning after being absent from Virtue’s Last Reward. This is due to her similar revealing attire and her returning as the position 8 in the experiment, the number she held in 999.
Only one more participant is to be revealed and is expected to be shown next week following the weekly schedule the previous tweets have followed.
