A compilation of Nine Hours, Nine Persons, Nine Doors and Virtue’s Last Reward is being released Friday on PC/PS4/Vita.
The third game of game - Zero Time Dilemma -  is already available on PC.

Kidnapped and taken to an unfamiliar location, nine people find themselves forced to participate in a diabolical Nonary Game by an enigmatic mastermind called Zero. Why were they there? Why were they chosen to put their lives on the line as part of a dangerous life and death game? Who can be trusted? Tensions rise as the situation becomes more and more dire, and the nine strangers must figure out how to escape before they wind up dead.

Two spine-tingling Nonary Games
Zero welcomes you to take part in both the Nonary Game and the Nonary Game: Ambidex Edition as the award-winning escape-the-room visual novels Nine Hours, Nine Persons, Nine Doors (999) and its sequel, Virtue’s Last Reward (VLR), are together for the first time.
A remastered and revamped Nine Hours
The well-received classic Nintendo DS game 999 has been updated with hi-res graphics and a variety of new features including both Japanese and English voice acting!
Seek a way out
Search for clues within numerous locked rooms and solve mind-bending puzzles in order to escape. VLR even has two difficulty settings for more of a challenge.
Fascinating theories and pseudo science ideas abound along the twisting, turning journey to uncover who Zero is, why everyone was kidnapped, and the shocking connection between the Nonary Games.

Don’t miss it, great stories.

Woah, 999 will have voice acting? That miiight be enough to get me to bite.
I have really conflicted feelings about this series. I hate the overall plots but love the way they are told. Their strategy is to throw a high amount of surprising revelations at you in hopes the player will go “thats amaaaaaziiiing”.. when in reality their plots are jumbled messes.
But the music.. the atmosphere, the puzzles, the intensity.. i cant help but be sentimental about the series.

I missed these originally, but seems like fans love them both (especially 999). Glad to know I can get them in one place soon! Thanks for the heads up!

Sounds great! I loved 999, and I have been wanting to play VLR since it came out, but still haven’t got a 3DS yet Frown

     

The real problem with reality is the lack of background music.

Music is what feelings sound like…

Even though I own every iteration of these games, I never got around playing them.

Got them through Steam yesterday and been enjoying 999.

Side note: If you are a purist be sure to play the game in ‘Visual Novel’ mode as much as possible instead of ‘adventure’ as the latter omits most of the non-dialogue text….
Which is also cool, because the voiced dialogue flows better without getting interrupted every second.

The game VLR was also released on the PSVITA - which is an excellent version of it too.

I really want this game - 999 is a classic and with voice acting will only be better!

I enjoy playing adventure games on handheld systems- PS VITA, Nintendo DS and ipad mini.

Okay, so I am halfway through my first playthrough of 999. I plan on doing multiple runs seeing each ending. I am following a guide only to reach the endings, the puzzles I solve myself. There is a proposed order of ending that is supposed to be the best way to play through it and get the most out of this so…
Great game so far, but a plotpoint that kind of bothered me. I hope someone can clarify it without spoiling it.

So supposedly Snake got murdered(I don’t buy it. Body unidentifiable with only clothes to go on….yeah right) after finishing the second trial. So somewhat further into the game the cast theorizes on what happened and Seven proposes the following: Two people along with Snake opened door no. 3(Snake is 2 so couldn’t have opened it himself alone), pushed him inside door closed behind him, and since he is the only one to be inside the room he can’t deactive the DED. But what about the supposed killers though? Even though they didn’t enter, shouldn’t their detonators started counting down, only possibly deactived by the DED? I know things didn’t go this way so don’t answer by saying: Continue and you will find out. Right now I am trying to remember the established rules by the game. So players can activate a RED together, but if they don’t pass the door nothing will happen to them?

Thanks in advance.

I don’t remember very well but I think that’s it, bracelet only activates if you go through the door

Yup. Remember the first set of doors? The guy used June’s (?) bracelet to open the door, then he went through without her and got blown up, but she didn’t. The rules are weird, but they’re consistent.

Yeah, you’re right. My mistake.

According to the guide, best one to get first is the Coffin Ending.


It’s pretty short for a visual novel though, which I am completely fine with. Took me 2.5 days to finish one playthrough.
