Aksys Games and Spike Chunsoft have announced on the PlayStation Blog that the first two adventure games in the Zero Escape series will be coming to both PS4 and PS Vita next Spring in a compliation package. The two titles in question are subtitled 999: Nine People, Nine Persons, Nine Doors and Virtue’s Last Reward together compiling Zero Escape: The Nonary Games. 999 has been completely revamped with HD graphics, and new English and Japanese voice acting has been included in this version of the game.

It is worth noting there are curently no details on whether the game will be physical or not yet. It is also worth mentioning the EU PlayStation Blog has an identical blog post, so it looks like Aksys will be publishing it in both territories. Likewise, there is no mention of Zero Time Dilemma.

Zero Escape: The Nonary Games will be coming to PS4 and PS Vita in Spring 2017 in North America and Europe.

About Joseph Puntschart

A university student who loves niche games and desires for them to be more fairly represented in the world. Favourite games include Persona 4 Golden, Super Mario Galaxy, Kingdom Hearts II and IA/VT Colorful. Hopes that one day a Japanese publisher will take the risk and make a Yaoi ecchi game. Think Valkyrie Drive with guys and you're on the right lines.

    Hmm
    I just don’t see how 999 will work, given a heavy plot element incorporated the DS’s 2 screens

    • Miles

      I think they are revamping 999 similar the the other 2 games.

    • Axle_Magnum

      There’s still major plot stuff that uses the two screens that can’t be replicated on other systems, it wouldn’t work

    • Miles

      Hmm you’re probably right but as I said they’re revamping 999 so things that you probably wouldn’t work on the vita will probably be changed completely. But its just speculation on my part. Just got to wait and see until the game come out. More of it, its sort of a remake sort of. Not completely a remake but a port with many change.

    • Axle_Magnum

      See, VLR works because that game wasn’t built with one particular system in mind. 999, however, revolves around the two screens and it’s integral to the plot

    • Miles

      ? I’m not trying to argue with you. I’m just saying it would be revamp with changes suitable to the Vita and the PS4. This is just speculation until we get more news on this.

    • Axle_Magnum

      I get what you’re saying, but I’m just saying I have doubts about any changes working due to the nature of the plot.

    • Panpopo

      They will probably use whatever they did for the IOS version.

    • Axle_Magnum

      Well, the iOS version so already garbage for excluding the puzzles

      There’s spoilers abound, but what they did for the iOS version ruins a lot of the plot

    • Panpopo

      Well, different stokes I suppose. It is nice for those that do not own a 3ds/DS to play 999 though.

  • Miles

    lol When I want to get off of the Video Game Train they just drag me back in. Darn it. The english voice acting is a good inclusion. Played 999 multiple time but it does put me to sleep when I have to read and it is very texts heavy. Wish the third was included.

  • Mr0303

    I’ve tried Virtue’s Last Reward and I wasn’t a big fan, but it’s good for PlayStation fans, who want to have all games on one platform.

    • Panpopo

      Yeah, I think the only one that is left is ZTD for PS4 players – maybe a trilogy compilation will happen down the line. If anything, I am glad more people can get to play the series.
