In a rather nice surprise, Aksys have announced that 999: 9 Hours, 9 Persons, 9 Doors is coming to iOS as ‘999 The Novel‘. 999 is the precursor to Virtue’s Last Reward on PS Vita – and originally appeared on the DS, to wide acclaim, but less that stellar sales. This new iOS version will allow people to experience what was an excellent story.
In an interesting twist, Aksys have totally ditched the puzzle elements from the original – so this one is a straight Visual Novel. That’s not really a bad thing to be honest, as it was the original’s story – not the ‘gameplay’ elements that really made it interesting.
It will release on iOS on the 17th of March and will allow you to play the different branches of the story, without having to replay from scratch – a feature which first appeared in it’s sequel.
