    The HD remake of the classic DS game, 999, alongside its sequel, Virtue's Last Reward, will be hitting Steam on March 24th worldwide. The game will also be coming to PS Vita and PS4, but Aksys Games has not provided a release time frame for those platforms at this time. Zero Escape: The Nonary Games's version of 9 Hours 9 Persons 9 Doors adds high res graphics and new English and Japanese voice acting.

    Looking forward to this, I have been playing this series since the initial release on the DS. So it will be interesting to play 999 with voice acting, and new features. That does remind me that I need to complete my watch collection, I just need the yellow, blue, and green watches from VLR. I was lucky enough to get the other watches from 999, the red one from VLR, and the one from ZTD.

    i hope they sell 3 versions of them on steam

    1. 999 on its own
    2. VLR on its own
    3. Both games together as a bundle

    the reason why is because ive already played VLR on Vita and ZTD on PC so all want from this release is 999 HD

    Hopefully they keep the interface and graphics close to the originals and only improve the level of detail since ZTD is the ugliest (and otherwise worst) episode for me.

    Where's the switch version? Did Nintendo rejected it for the moment to escape the fate of Vita becoming a galgame console?

    I think they just realized they can make some money by porting their games to PC whith a little polish put on it, nothing more.
    It's not just them, recently there is a trend of devs waking up to the fact that there's money to be made on PC with formerly console only games.

    I actually haven't played ZE3 yet. Was waiting for 999 remaster to make a ZE marathon on Vita.

    Dear Lord I love these games so much.

    But I already own them on the DS/3DS. Do I really need them on PS4 and PC?

    ...yes, yes I do.

    Lol, I am in the same boat. Even though I own them on DS/3DS, I want to support the devs and creator for sure, so I will buy them again.

    Never heard of them. What's so good about interactive novels anyway? If I was in the mood to read something well playing a game, i'd finish Tales of Heart R.

    It's a bit more involved than that, it's not just an eBook with pictures. The game consists of escape room-style puzzles and loads of moral choices, often times with multiple solutions, each resulting in a different line of story progression and a different ending. Unlocking all of them is the key to finishing the game. It's a genre of its own, really - I highly recommend the series.

    I think I would rather play the originals if we are being honest. At least the first one.

    Still think PS4's an odd choice, given the lack of a ZTD release for the platform. Regardless, I'm glad I don't have to deal with the blank stares I get when telling people to pick up a DS or iPhone for 999.

    Uhm... That's precisely why you'd want to release a game on a platform - because it's not on it yet. You have a whole new audience to sell your game to, and the PS4 is currently the leading platform. It would be weird if they *didn't* port it to the system.

    The problem is that they're porting the first two games to PS4 without the last one - Zero Time Dilemma is on Steam and Vita already, but PS4 owners who get into the series from this release would either have to buy the last game on PC or handheld, or hope that eventually it gets ported to the PS4 as well. Given the largely negative reactions from the fanbase, it's entirely possible that ZTD never gets a PS4 release if Spike Chunsoft doesn't feel it'll be profitable.

    I got tired of this kind of game overtime.. but a HD remake seems like a good move to me. Maybe I'll even check it again some day... maybe
