A First Look At 999's SuccessorHere's some details, art and a trailer!08.25.11 - 12:51 AM
Chunsoft's spiritual successor to 999 (Nine Hours, Nine Persons, Nine Doors)
, Gyokugen Dasshutsu Adv: Zennin Shiboudes
(Extreme Escape Adventure: Good People Die
) was recently announced
to be in the works for both the Nintendo 3DS and the PlayStation Vita. Now we can have a first look at the game. Although Good People Die
may not be an actual sequel to 999
, this trailer sure channels the latter. After all, mentions of the Nonary Game, numbered doors, those familiar watches - and a 'Zero' - all make an appearance. In fact, it pretty much looks like the same concept, just in 3D this time.
We mentioned that 999's scenario writer and character designer both make a return for Good People Die. Sounds like the composer is back, too. Speaking of the character designer (Kinu Nishimura), have a look at the first pieces of artwork.
The main character in the group shot is the man in dark blue. His name is Sigma, and he's a college student who tries to hit on girls but instead comes off as annoying. In the very center is Phi (looks-wise, does she remind you of anyone...?), who is very intelligent but often makes silly jokes and for some reason exaggerates her bust size. (Wonder if everyone is named after a Greek letter.) The game begins when Sigma wakes up next to Phi in an elevator. He doesn't know her, but somehow she knows his name. When a bunny (yes, that is a bunny in the picture), they escape the elevator, eventually running into other hostages. The group find themselves trapped in a warehouse from which they must escape.
Extreme Escape Adventure: Good People Die is currently only 50% complete, and does not yet have a date for Japan.
