Zero Escape: The Nonary Games Escaping to PS4 and PS Vita 2017

The first two games in the beloved puzzle visual novel series Zero Escape, created by Kotaro Uchikoshi, are coming over to PS4 and Vita next year.  They are coming packed together in a collection called Zero Escape: The Nonary Games. It is an exclusive, glorious collection for everyone who has not had the chance to experience the story of Zero Escape or just want to play the games completely remastered on PS4 or Vita. The collection will also include full English and Japanese voice acting.

Here’s a little information for those who don’t know about the two games:999cast_wallpaper

Zero Escape: Nine Hours, Nine Persons, Nine Doors (999)

Step into the shoes of Junpei a young man who, along with 8 others, are captured and forced to play the Nonary Game. It is a game that is played with nine participants that must cooperate to get to the end and survive. In this game, the player must find the door with the number 9 painted upon it, and will have to solve a series of puzzles in order to do so. There is a time limit, and for those who cannot succeed, die. The game is played with three different sections, the novel section which is played as a visual novel. There are the escape portions where the player must look for a way out, and finally minigame sections which are scattered in each escape. With multiple endings, an insane plot, and a complex story the relationships that you gain may not be exactly what they seem.


Zero Escape: Virtue’s Last Reward

Sigma wakes up, not knowing where he is and next to a girl that he has never met before. They, along with seven other strangers, have been captured to play the Nonary Game: Ambidex Edition. Much like the original Nonary Game, the penalty for losing is death, but this time the rules are different. Not getting too complex into the actual mechanics, there is a definite branch that may be accessed to get to each of the endings that are in the game. The game plays much like 999, however, the player is able to ally with or betray those around you. Will you choose to trust those around you or betray everyone around you? So, what’s it going to be?

Games have always been an inspiration for me. Seeing what can be done and expressed through experiencing each game is what makes me want to write about video games, to share those moments with others.
