Spike Chunsoft announced at a Zanki Zero panel at Anime Expo on Saturday that its Spike Chunsoft, Inc. North American subsidiary will release the Zanki Zero: Last Beginning game in the West for PlayStation 4 and PC via Steam in spring 2019. The Western release was originally slated for this year.
The game shipped in Japan on July 5 for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita.
The game focuses on the last eight humans left alive, each one labelled with a different sin: police officer Minamo (pride), editor Haruto (sloth), rich young lady Yuma (gluttony), doctor Mamoru (greed), florist Rinko (lust), farmer Zen (wrath), artist Ryō (envy), and a girl named Sachika (original sin). They exist because their bodies are human clones. They will age and die within 13 days, but they can be reborn.
The team working on the game previously developed the Danganronpa series, and includes Yoshinori Terasawa and Takayuki Sugawara, among others. If the player has save data from Danganronpa, that game's mascot character can appear in Zanki Zero.
