999: The Novel Coming to iOS Next Week

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.
