A sequel to the successful title 999: Nine Hours, Nine Persons, Nine Doors has been confirmed and is set to be released in October this year. Virtue's Last Reward, known as Good People Die in Japan, will be available on the Nintendo 3DS and Playstation Vita.
Both games are now classified as part of the Zero Escape series, 'Zero' being the name of the mysterious abductor from the first title. Characters from 999 feature again in VLR but it is unknown to what extent. Several new characters are also introduced who are said to merit additional investigation.
Other features of the forthcoming title include dual language support allowing communication in both English and Japanese, fully voiced novel sections, 24 unique endings and an impressive 3D environment to immerse yourself into.
The 3DS box art for Virtue's Last Reward is now available to view on Amazon.
