The lights are on
There is a little-known DS game called 9 Hours, 9 Persons, 9 Doors. Zero Escape: Virtue's Last Reward is in the same series, and it's coming to North America.
The press release from Aksys Games is vague about whether Virtue's Last Reward is a true sequel to 9 Hours, 9 Persons, 9 Doors (999), but it does state that both games are part of the Zero Escape series. If you haven't played 999, it's basically the video game version of the movie Saw or Cube. You have to solve puzzles to avoid getting killed or blown up, and there are others who are in the same situation as you.
The game will have a retail release for both Vita and 3DS, and will also be available to download through the PlayStation Network. The game will contain both English and Japanese voice tracks, will feature 3D characters and environments (999 featured hand-drawn 2D characters and environments), multiple endings, and familiar characters from 999.
You can check out the Japanese trailer for the game below. No word on a release date just yet.

Yessss! A multi-platform release! This shows people that both systems are closer in power than the PSP and DS was. Still, the Vita's pretty powerful (and they may have watered-down the 3DS version, though it sounds unlikely). And most importantly, this is a sequel to a great game, though I've never played it.
I've always heard good stuff about 999. If I played my DS more often, it would be a really good idea to try it out... Anyways, good to hear that fans will be getting a sequel
the original translation of the title "Good People Die" is a better title. Zero Escape doesn't capture the macabre as much.
Good. I was hoping we'd see this. Doesn't have the same harsh ring as "Good People Die" but still. I plan to pick up this because I own 999 and it is good.
Aw why didnt they keep "Good People die"? I cant wait for this game. I have the demo on my jp 3ds but my lack of the language kept me from advancing very far. (i think i solved 2 puzzles) the animation looks great and the puzzle gameplay solid.
Looks interesting to say the least. Can't wait to hear more about it.
Interesting trailer but did you notice that some of scenes look like chicks getting raped? I don't got a dirty mind, its just I was like "WHOA."
I hope the trophies are awesome. 999 was a very fun and unique game. Though I wish they kept static images because these character models are hideous.
Haha, how I love thee Japan! You are epic. :D
I have no idea what the hell is going on. Subtitles please and thank you.
I've heard of 999 before. This looks pretty interesting. When it comes to NA I might have to check it out.
Not at ALL what I thought that was going to be.
Yay! I am SO looking forward to this!
pretty cool probably gonna be for the Vita i just don't need the migrain from my 3DS
