If there’s one thing we need more of in our lives, it’s 999. Not only is the original game superb, but its follow up Zero Escape: Virtue’s Last Reward proved to be one of the best visual novels/portable games of this generation. Aksys is keeping the 999 express chugging along as they’ve today announced the release date of 999: The Novel for March 17 for iOS. The game is a novelization of the original 999 (or Zero Escape: Nine Hours, Nine Persons, Nine Doors) for DS, maintaining the same suspenseful plot turns. New to the iOS versions is a flow-chart that allows readers to track with path they’ve chosen and go back and take a different route.
999: The Novel will be available for $4.99 on iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch.
