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.
