    Today at Anime Expo 2016, localization company Aksys Games has confirmed the heavily rumored port of 999 to Steam/PC platform. Series developer Uchikoshi has also been hinting at a possible PS Vita version as well. This version of 999 will also feature brand new Japanese voiceovers for the dialogue, and redrawn high-definition character sprites. Aksys also claims that a port for Virtue's Last Reward is being worked on, too.

    FCKIN YES, I've just gotten the first ending of ZTD and was wondering when 999 and VLR were going to be remade for PC.

    Ah, I just finished 999 today on the DS. Fantastic game, I'll probably leave it a few years and replay it :3 Just enough time to forget major plot details. I actually played Virtue's Last Reward first and remembered who Zero was wrong, so that made the game even more interesting :')

    ANYWAY. I hope they release em all for the Vita. I fecking LOVE that system.

    Because it's a fantastic system with ample great games. Its drawback is its great games only come from one or two specific genres (JRPGs, Visual Novels etc)

    Stream version's a must-buy; given that Amazon will eventually ship my ZTD orders for both systems and i've got VLR on it from PS+, I suppose I'll end up buying the Vita version as well to complete the trilogy there.

    Hopefully they work on the background/environments textures as well.
    I think 999 had drawn environments if I recall, no 3D models, so it shouldn't look that bad on PC.
    I'm not that hung up on graphics, but Zero Time Dilemma kinda disappointed me on that point.
    Some 3D Models are reaaally blocky (and sometimes shown very closely in cutscenes weirdly) , and sadly a lot of textures are simply monochrome which accentuates the problem.

    I'm not saying the devs should work on high-res textures, but it's really not hard to round some edges on a 3D model.
    I just wish they had accounted the fact that things looking ok on a small screen might need a small touch-up to get it looking decent on PC.

    Man really loved 999 when I played it a couple of years ago. I'm excited for this should be a fun experience. I'm having trouble deciding whether I should get it for the vita or pc.

    So more people can legally play the game and experience it? And to make a definitive version featuring new assets and features?

    Emulators themselves, certainly. But for a game that didn't have a European release at all on the now "retro" DS, let's be honest, how many people are legally playing a game they own? Having a PC version lets people buy the game and support the devs/publishers, who really deserve your money, seeing as how this fantastic series sold like crap.

    No one argued that. But it's not completely illegal to play the game on PC was my point.

    P.S. I just got into this series a week ago. I saw the original game came with the watch from the game. I know I'm super late to the party but I'm hoping they can do a reprint of the watches for newcomers like me. Wishful thinking but I wont cry if it never happens.

    They do occasional competitions on their Twitter for the watches, so you could keep an eye out there. They might do another with the future 999 remaster. Other than that, I wouldn't get your hopes up, these things are limited edition for a reason sadly.

    What other people do is no one's business but their own. Whether it's likely or not that the game is being played illegally is irelavent, the point is its not illegal to play on PC.

    I do feel terrible about not knowing about this series sooner. I would of definitely have bought it at the time.

    Are there any fan made watches sold anywhere? I'd like to have one even if it isn't the "official" one.
