A First Look At 999's Successor
Here'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.
