Hey everyone, here's a thread to post your impressions on the demo of the game since it'll first be available in English today. If you're unsure what it is, it's a follow-up to Zero Escape: 999: 9 Hours, 9 Persons, 9 Doors (Flash Demo) for the Nintendo DS. Reading and puzzles, basically! Also blowing of minds. Do some Googlin'

Demo Availability
  • North America (Aksys Games) -- Releases 10/23/2012 on PlayStation Vita (Retail & PSN) and Nintendo 3DS
  • Europe (Rising Star Games) -- Releases Fall 2012 on PlayStation Vita and Nintendo 3DS
    • PlayStation Vita -- ????
    • Nintendo 3DS -- ???

*For North America -- The demo contains only English voices, but the full game will have both English and Japanese voice-overs.*

I have no idea how the Europe release is being handled by RSG, so you should ask them if they're doing anything differently!

Also the OT will go up in two weeks, so everyone can move into there when it is posted. Also GAF is weird for me so I'm posting this thread now since it might not work for me later D:

I pre-ordered a physical copy off Amazon since like 2/3rds of my game are already digital. I loved 999, going to try the demo later today when it comes out. I'm curious how it all looks on the Vita screen, I'm a bit disappointed we couldn't get 2D sprites, but the vita can make 3D look pretty slick so I'd like to see.

EU release was announced? Goddamnit, there goes my last reason not to buy a 3DS. Time to break the piggy bank and get the Aqua Blue one, along with VLR (and OoT3D, because, why not).

At first I thought about importing a PSV version because of no region lock, but that's a no-go until Sony stops that price dickwaddery.

Aksyezlelizsisis said it has dual voice-overs, yes. And if you look up the PR or something, should mention it.

Any chance of a digital download on 3DS when the game arrives or it faces the same problem as the demo ?

I'd like to support the European release, but with no date set yet I'll just import the physical US version.

Also, I already said this, but dual voice is fantastic. Maybe I'll do a dual-buy with the US and EU versions!

They've said nothing about a digital 3DS release as far as I know. Not sure if Aksys will do that though. I know XSEED still hasn't put Unchained Blades on the eShop yet. D:

Since we're about 3 weeks from release, I'm betting no chance of it happening on release if it eventually is available digitally.

I'm guessing they mean PSV memory card prices, not something specifically VLR related.

Well, the demo should match the Japanese demo, so unless the Japanese demo had things locked then it should be a-ok~

Well that's silly... Why give a demo to show what a game is like, and then limit people from showing what the demo is like?

Also, speaking of demos, if anyone is curious about or hasn't checked out 999 yet, make sure you do before playing VLR :)!

It'll enhance the experience a lot ;)

You can check out the 999 demo online here:

If your demo is going to hurt your sales, I think you have bigger problems than worrying about people making screencaps.

My country puts INSANE taxes on games (price usualy ends up 5 times the original) and the only way a normal human being can buy games is importing (wich puts you on a luck roll that might or might not be taxed) or using a USA account and download games =x
