Today is the day that the heavily anticipated Zero Escape: Virtue’s Last Reward will be released by Aksys Games. Spiritual successor to Chunsoft’s highly acclaimed visual novel 999 (Nine Hours, Nine Persons, Nine Doors), many fans have been eager to get their hands on the newest title available on both the Nintendo 3DS and PlayStation Vita.

In light of this release, Amazon is having another sale on 999. The sale itself is 25% off its original price of $19.99, an already low price for a prestigious game, but now at an even lower cost of $14.99. It’s unknown how long the sale will last, so it’s better to act fast and see what all the fuss is about. (Check out our review on 999 here.)

Last week, we released the Zero Escape: Virtue’s Last Reward Special OVA! For those of you who missed it, this promotional OVA has been dubbed in English and details the beginnings of Zero Escape: Virtue’s Last Reward! Meet each of the nine characters in this fully animated short!

Imagine, rocking it out with a great song and just your luck, you face a gas mask figure and get kidnapped! Well, that’s what happens to Sigma in the special OVA! Aksys Games teamed up with Monterey, CA based rock band VIS to provide the song “Koyatte”, which plays while Sigma is cruising down a deserted road.

    Gah, wish I had the extra cash to get it. 🙁 Jealous of everyone who gets to play it today! And if you haven’t played 999, that sale price is a total steal.

  • Ah, shoot!  I just bought 999 a few days ago from Amazon for $19.99…..  Still, I’m really looking forward to finally playing this game!

  • Highly recommend anyone to check the game out. 999 was fantastic and this one looks to continue that.

  • Wasn’t waiting for a review haha.

    I picked up the game today. Hypebeast mode is going nuts.

    First: I preordered this with that watch bonus, which I wouldn’t have known about if you guys hadn’t posted about it (twice), so thanks a lot.

    Second: 999 for $15? To anyone who hasn’t gotten it yet, get it.

    Third: Man, that trailer creeps me out. Especially that “Memento mori” (Latin for “remember that you will die”) “Tu fui, ego eris” is a memento mori. It was put on tombstones and means “I was you, you will be me.” (That is, “I was alive like you and you will be dead like me.”) And then it mentions Schrödinger’s cat, which is basically a thought experiment that argues against a theory of quantum mechanics by stuffing a cat in a box with a radioactive mechanism that will kill it at a random point in time. According to the quantum mechanics theory the cat would be both dead and alive at the same time. A nice experiment, but it’s rather disturbing in the context of VLR, where nine people have been stuffed in a big box (and will probably die.)
