    After the surprisingly great sales of 9 Hours 9 Persons 9 Doors, I REALLY hope Akysys is willing to localize this game. Kotaro Uchikoshi is working on it, meaning the story will be as good, if not better than 999 & Ever 17.

    Anybody who loves visual novels should be excited.

    ...wait, was it mentioned whether or not it was in any way a sequel or no? ah well, new stories are always good, whether they be related or not to previous stories. [​IMG]

    I'm not a visual novel fan, but 999 is one of my all time favorite games, so a similar game would be awesome.

    Wow, for both consoles. [​IMG]

    An extra reason for me to get a Vita? But I already have a 3DS.

    It's nice that they include the 3DS! I'm really looking forward to this one.

    Hmm... It would be pretty hard to top the atmosphere and general theme that 999 had... I wonder what they're gonna do.

    I hope they don't use 3D models.

    Am I the only one who after reading the title first thought it odd to have exactly 999 developers working on a game - only then to realise a few moments later what it actually meant [​IMG]

    But anyhows, it is an awesome game, can only hope they do something just as good with what they're working on now [​IMG]

    That would have to be the game of the year, if not more. [​IMG]

    Anyway, pretty cool, but I have not had a chance to play 999 yet. ;_;

    1st Post UPDATED with a scan.

    This looks like it IS a sequel to 999. Anyone else notice the "9" on the Door?

    They even have the bracelets.

    It might be, but it very well might take place during the events of 999, though it's unlikely it is possible (can't say why, spoilers). I really wish it weren't, though. I loved how they didn't answer every question and you had to figure out certain things yourself.

    That said, I loved 999 and I'd love a new one.
