Now that Zero Time Dilemma is out in the wild and ready to round off the series, it’s time to go back to its roots – and visit a remastered version of where it all started.
Spike Chunsoft has announced that Zero Escape: The Nonary Games is headed to PlayStation Vita sometime next year, bringing to you the first two games of the Zero Escape series; Nine Hours, Nine Persons, Nine Doors (999) and Virtue’s Last Reward (VLR).
This will be the first time that 999 will be available on PlayStation Vita, and in celebration of that it has been rebuilt from the ground up to feature high definition graphics and both English and Japanese voice-over tracks. This is the way that 999 should be played, and it’s the way that it’s coming to our favourite handheld next year.
But why should you play it?
Well, the Zero Escape games are considered some of the best games on the system, and they’re definitely unique to boot. They’re nonary games (they contain nine participants) that have you entered against your will, pitting you against others in a you-lose-you-die sort of obstacle course. Your game host is an enigmatic being called Zero, and your wrists have been adorned with timepieces to die for; sounds like a hell of a trip!
The good news, as we said, is that this trip isn’t very far off. Zero Escape: The Nonary Games is headed to PlayStation Vita (both digitally and physically) sometime in the Spring of next year, and will bring you two parts of the Zero Escape trilogy in one package – the first game in the series seeing its first appearance on our platform.
