This is not what I expected. I thought we would get the game in the same style but higher resolution. Not exactly bad, but I prefer the original style.

I'm starting to think the offspring theory is more likely now. That screenshot makes the pink-haired girl look a little less like Clover. I wonder if the Lotus/Allice-looking girl is related to one of them.

The pose the Clover lookalike is taking was one of her mannerisms as well, though. The hairband does indeed have the same pattern as the earmuffs Clover wore, not to mention the same two-tone pink color for the hair (their eye color is also the same). From here, it looks like she has a combination of freckles and face decals as Clover did as well (granted, they were white dots for the decals in Clover's case).

Right now, I find myself more interested in just how this relates to 999 than anything else (I find it much too hard to believe there is no connection/that they aren't trying to say something with so many deliberate similarities).

Going to have to agree with this (I was looking forward to new sprites, so I find this disappointing).

I like this artpiece a lot. Hope we eventually get a better version of it.

I don't really like the 3D stuff (though the character models look nice). I liked what I saw in 999 a little more.

So a 999 sequel?

Also hahaha, the art design is getting more and more wacky. Already clashed with the somber tone of the first one. It is on a whole new level this time around.

EDIT: hahaha, the most normal dude is practically wearing one of those NASCAR outfits in t-shirt form, expect with signs like "anarchy".

The guy dressed like a mechanic is the game's main character, Sigma. Sigma is an ordinary college student who will frequently make sexual comments, annoying girls.

The girl in the center of the character art is Phi. She's cool and intelligent, but will sometimes say stupid jokes. She says she's a C cup when she's actually an A cup.

The story begins when Sigma is kidnapped and awakens in an elevator next to Phi. While Sigma doesn't know Phi, she seems to know him, even calling his name out. A bunny appears on the elevator monitor, causing them to flee the elevator (I'm not sure what the bunny says to make them flee, although if I saw a talking bunny on an elevator monitor I'd flee too). They find themselves in a warehouse alongside seven others. They will have to escape from this facility.

Chunsoft refers to Gyokugen Dasshutsu Adv: Zennin Shiboudes as a "game of betrayal." What that means is unclear at present, as only a few gameplay details have been announced. The game will have visual novel parts and escape parts. The escape parts involve exploring rooms and solving puzzles.

Development on Gyokugen Dasshutsu Adv: Zennin Shiboudes is currently at 50%. Famitsu lists the release time frame as TBA.

NEED SO BADLY HNNNNNNNNGH!

It would have been nice to have 2D HD animated sprites, but it seems "next gen" visual novels in Japan are hopping on the trend of 3D modeling XD;

Still looks cool regardless :D I like that it seems they have some sort of communication device *looks at the pics of the two teammates on either side of the Clover looking girl in her pic*

And that new piece of key art is very HNNNNNNNNNNNNNNGH worthy <3

Also, Sigma looks super manly for a college student, but maybe I just find it odd when compared to Junpei XD

Sigma is already badass now. I hope Phi and the big boobs girl have a lot of interactions with each other. Also for some reason the bunny scenario reminded of Donnie Darko.

Very interesting. I'll be very curious to see if they can make something else based on the same concept that lives up to what 999 did, since 999 really kind of subverted the "trapped in a game of death" concept in creative ways

I do hope it isn't just the Nonary game set in the same universe, since I'm not sure how they can match the first game for intrigue when players already know so much about it.

Honestly, after finding out the game is 3D, I'll probably get the game for Vita. It'll probably end up having better AA and such. Though, playing it in 3D would be very tempting too...
