Zero Escape: Virtue's Last Reward

Part 162: Floor B

999 OST: [Riddle and Puzzle]

Listen in: [English/Japanese]

What is this place?
A warehouse...?

Hey, look over there.

Those doors are...white.

Shall we have a look, then?

They're all the same, though.

This one won't open either.

No luck here.

So these will be the next doors to open...
We should go let the others know.


Alice and I turned to go, but K stayed put.

No... I just feel as if I've seen this warehouse before.

Wait, you've been here before?!

I don't know. Perhaps I haven't been here, only somewhere very similar.

You mean the floor A warehouse?



[Music fades out]

Forty-five minutes remain until Ambidex Game polling closes.

VLR OST: [Strain]

Someone else must have opened one of the AB Gates.

Before we got back!?

I imagine they don't care what happens to the rest of us. That would be the most logical explanation.



In any event, we should return quickly.

Yeah. Let's get going, guys!

bloop bloop bloop bloop bloop bloop bloop beep-beep-beep-beep-beep

Listen in: [English/Japanese]

Where's Tenmyouji's team? Are they not back yet?

Nope. We were the first.

Then wait a little longer before you open the AB Gate!

It wasn't us. I tried to stop him, but...

C'mon, it's not like when we open the door really affects the matches, right? It's cool.

No, it's not cool!

Did your investigation go smoothly?

I guess.

Which room did you guys go to?

The treatment center.

Treatment center? How is that different from the infirmary?

There were these pod things...
Look, just go see for yourself, all right?
I don't feel like explaining it.


Huh? What're you talking about?

You did. I saw it too.
After we opened the safe, you grabbed something out of it and put it in your pocket.
Show us what you took!

Aaah! Get away from me!

Clover shoved her hand into Dio's pocket and began to dig around.

It should be in this one—

Let go!

Before Dio could push her away, Clover found what she was looking for.

An injection gun...? The label on the vial says "neostigmine"...
What's this stuff for?

I donno, but...
I feel like I've heard that name before somewhere...

Give it back! I found it, so it's mine!


With a desperate lunge, Dio managed to grab the gun back from Clover.
But before she had a chance to protest...

[Music fades out]

*Pant* *Pant* *Pant*

Have any of you seen Quark?!
Anyone! Please!

Quark? Did something happen to him?

We found a pantry on the other side of the red door, but...
After we left he just...disappeared...

We've looked everywhere, but we can't find him.

You think he's lost?

VLR OST: [Consternation]


C'mon, that little jerk's probably dead by now.
We've already found one corpse, right?

How could you!?
Why would you say such a horrible thing!?

Whoa, simmer down there. Just sayin' it's a possibility.

Well, even if it is we should all be looking for him.


There now follows quite a lot of bloop-bloop-beeping and door openings and title cards. If it's all the same to you guys I'm just going to pretend these are straight jumpcuts.


Guess not.
Damn... Let's try floor B then.

They've probably already searched that area pretty thoroughly, then. Maybe I'll try the blue door.


He's not here either...
Where the hell did he go...

Listen in: [English/Japanese]

Nothing. I can't find him anywhere.

I see.

What about you?
...Never mind. If you'd found him, you'd have said something already.

I went to the treatment center, as well as the floor B warehouse, but he was not there.


Oh well.
Let's head back to the floor A warehouse.

Good idea. Perhaps the others have had more luck.

Sorry... We couldn't find him anywhere.

I-I see...

Are the three of you the only others to have returned?

I'm guessing you guys didn't have any luck either.

Yeah... No clues or anything...


I don't get it. With this many people looking, it seems like we'd be able to find him pretty fast.

Quark is only a child.
It's possible he's become trapped in a small, enclosed space.

Well, wouldn't we at least be able to hear him calling for help?

Yeah... You're right.



Tenmyouji's shoulders slumped. He looked old, much older than he had when we'd met.
I could see tears glistening at the corners of his eyes. For just a moment I saw in them all of his pain, fear, and despair, and it felt like someone had put my heart in a vise.

Then Dio appeared, and the mood suddenly changed.

[Music fades out]


What are you standing around for!? They're in the crew quarters!


Just come on!
