Isn't Radiant Historia getting a re-print?


It is, and it looks like 999 will too, under the new title Zero Escape: Nine Hours, Nine Persons, Nine Doors.

Not sure if you're being sarcastic or not, but Zero Escape is the sequel to it, not a reprint.

Actually the "sequel" has been localized:

Hopefully they make a PSN version of 999

Money comes and goes, but deals don't last forever ;)


If anime was mainstream, would it be as satisfying?

Wait,
9*9*9 = 729
price = 19.99

Then,
729/19.99 = 36.46
36.46 =>36.5

Now,
9*3 = 27

So,
36.5 - 27 = 9.5

Therefore

The game's name is basically called... "999: Nine Hours, 9 Persons, 9 Doors." I say basically because the name can be written in a few different ways.

The sequel was called: "Extreme Escape: Good People Die," but will be renamed for at least the North American region as "Zero Escape: Virtue's Last Reward."

I'd buy a reprint of 999 with an alternate title as "Zero Escape: 999." Just to keep sealed, if it is just a title change.

I will never, ever understand why people keep thinking this was a good story. It had some good bits here and there but the true ending was so utterly retarded that it pissed away everything I liked about it.

Ghost Trick kicks the everloving crap out of this.

That said, not a total waste of time. Spins a decent enough yarn when it doesn't go crazy at the end.

I thought the ending was great, sure.. I've heard of a few people not liking how it ends, but there are probably more that like it than those that don't.

Great game, one of the best experiences on the DS. It would be in my top 3 along with Hotel Dusk and Elite Beat Agents.

I thought the ending was great, completely not what I was expecting. Only complaint was that it didn't tie everything together quite as nicely as I was hoping it would but hopefully part of that was because they were planning on there being a sequel and it'll get tied together through the sequel.

Now Playing:
 

:wiiu: Pikmin 3, Super Mario World, F-Zero

I'm not being sarcastic. Zero Escape is now the name of the series. The sequel is Zero Escape: Virtue's Last Reward, and a rerelease of this game will be called Zero Escape: Nine Hours, Nine Persons, Nine Doors.

I see what you did there ...

Seriously though, it's a good game if you don't mind reading. It's more of a choose your own adventure than a game, but entertaining enough.

With Virtue's Last Reward coming out soon, I thought people might be interested in this game due to references made in VLR and created by the same staff. Didn't think it was worth creating a new thread due to the low price difference, but the game is $19.40 from third party seller Shark Distributors and shipped by Amazon so it's FSSS/Prime eligible. Amazon is also directly selling it for $19.67 should that one sell out.

The game was recently re-released with a new cover. I'd guess that there's a chance you get the original cover if you ordered from the third party seller instead of Amazon directly. I couldn't find any other retailers with a listing for the game other than Frys for $29.96. Maybe the re-release got a low print run and it'll be more difficult to find the game?

I think I subconsciously got this deal from Kotaku so I'm just updating to give credit. I swear I didn't see that article till I made this post.

Hope somebody provides scans of this new box art for those of us who already own this great game. I guess I could just copy and print from the post above me.

Amazon was charging $24.99 for this last week lol. They also charge me tax, so I ordered directly from Aksys's store instead, which was $19.99.

I think the re-release cover is actually better than the original. Which may be a first, for video games!

It is, that's why they added the "Volume I: Zero Escape" words and icon on the top right corner of the new art so they can link the 2 games.

Well if you have some spare time and thanks ahead. Upload it to this website:

http://www.thecoverproject.net/

When I can I'm going to try to upload the original box art there. I have never tried doing this before. I'm sure it will help a lot of CAGs though.

Hey sorry it took a while. Been busy with NYCC and other things. Also, I'm having trouble registering to that site so I've upload it to imgur.
