Product Description

Regional Office of the International Disease Organization, Washington D.C. – IDO agents working in California report that preliminary findings indicate the exceedingly dangerous Japanese adventure game known as “Zennin Shiboudesu” has somehow crossed the Pacific. Attempts were made to contain it, but some carriers seem to have escaped the quarantine and are now at large.

You thought you’d defeated the Nonary Game, but now it’s back, and more deadly than ever. It’ll take cunning, skill, and more than a little luck to escape alive, but do you really have a choice?

IDO agents working in California report that preliminary findings indicate the exceedingly dangerous Japanese adventure game known as “Zennin Shiboudesu” has somehow crossed the Pacific. Attempts were made to contain it, but some carriers seem to have escaped the quarantine and are now at large.

Synopsis

This game is extremely virulent and can be transmitted through physical contact (via the dual “Nintendo 3DS and “PlayStation Vita retail vectors) as well as through the air (via the “PSN” vector), which has prompted the IDO to declare this a level 6 pandemic. All uninfected persons are advised to remain indoors and avoid contact with others. If you suspect you have been infected, or suspect a friend or family member of being infected, report, or have them report, to the nearest IDO quarantine facility.

Similarity to an earlier strain known as “Nine Hours, Nine Persons, Nine Doors” has lead to a reclassification: Both strains will now be considered members of the “Zero Escape” game series.Exposure to North America also seems to have caused Zennin Shiboudesu to mutate, and after much deliberation it has been determined that it will be referred to in all future literature as “Virtue’s Last Reward” (see forthcoming department memo re: choice of strain name).

Virtue’s Last Reward—or, alternatively, “VLR”—has been known to exhibit the following symptoms. If you begin to display any of these, distance yourself from friends and loved ones immediately, and proceed at once to the nearest IDO center.



Key Features:

  • Dual Language Support – Early cases show that VLR allows communication in both English and Japanese, with dialog playable in both languages. Whether or not this indicates damage to the languages centers of the brain is under investigation.
  • Puzzles and Story – Preliminary investigations show that this game progresses rapidly through a repeating cycle of two distinct stages, which have been termed the “Novel” and “Escape” stages. During the Novel stage, subjects find themselves engaged by a complex and mysterious story. During the Escape stage, subjects have been observed solving numerous puzzles.
  • Fully-Voiced Novel Sections – One of the indicators of the Novel stage is reportedly fully-voiced dialog: All characters except for the protagonist can be heard speaking during this stage.
  • Numerous Endings – VLR has been shown to exhibit numerous paths of infection, most of which are lethal. At press time, 24 different “endings” have been observed, each unique.
  • Immersive Three-Dimensional Environment – Many infected patients have reported a feeling of increased immersion in their surroundings, often manifested in the ability to rotate the camera around a 3D room rendered in-game and select and manipulate objects in three-dimensional space.
  • Introduces New Characters, Brings Back Old Ones – Our files on 999 indicate that a number of the characters featured there appear again in VLR, although in what capacity is still unclear. This strain also introduces several new characters, all of whom merit additional investigation.

Platform for Display:PlayStation Vita|Edition:Standard
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
The real appeal here is that I haven't played a game this intellectual since the original Chrono Cross in '99. Like that title, which was almost too intellectual for its own good, this game takes real concepts from the real world, such as Schrodinger's Cat, the nature of choice, the Prisoner's Dilemma, multi-Universes, and why people act the way they do depending on the situation, both consciously and unconsciously.

If you want cheap thrills Resident Evil-style, forget it. This isn't about that. This is about wrapping your head around a plot that can easily confuse you if you're not paying attention, and the way it unfolds only gradually begins to make sense--even given the way the concept of time and the future is treated. Don't be fooled by the somewhat generic intro, which, while entertaining, has nothing to do with the real meat of the game.

Once the game starts getting into what is real and not real and why we believe what we believe about others, and then what that means in the long run, and also why anyone's there to begin with, it's practically impossible to get away from it because you just have to see what happens next. I actually stayed up until 6 AM in the hopes that I'd reach the ending...But I never did, and I have yet to fully complete it, even though I know what I have to do.

That's why every character playing the Nonary Game has their own individual ending. Generally, if you reach their "correct" ending (everyone also seems to have an instant Game Over ending), you gain a piece of information you *will* need to solve the later mysteries. If you fail to make note of these particular things, (e.g., a particular string of numbers or something that happened in a past "history" you were a part of), you'll be at a disadvantage as the game goes on.

5.0 out of 5 stars Everybunny should play! October 28, 2012

Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
For those who have not played 999, I strongly suggest you do. It also a good way to see if this type of game is right for you. With that said, on to my review.

I'm sure most of you are aware that VLR like 999 is a choose your own adventure type of visual novel with puzzles. Chances are if you love 999, you'll love VLR. There are improvements over the first game namely the voice and the jump feature (no more replaying the same puzzle over and over). The voice in English is fantastic.

Now some of you are probably wondering which version to get if you have both the 3DS and Vita, like me.
I ultimately picked the Vita version because :
1) Better audio - The sound is in fact better and clearer.
2) 3 Save slot, and does not have that Save bug found in the 3DS version (I don't remember which room but if you try to reload from that certain room, you will be force to delete and start over.)
3) Trophies w/ platinum - no explanation hare
4) Better visual - It doesn't look bad on the 3DS but on the Vita's OLED screen, the colors really hop out and the graphic is really crisp.
5) The menu and memo touch responsiveness is hardly an issue that some makes it out to be. Also if you have a capacitive pen, it certain makes it easier for the memo writing but I find myself not really needing the memo.

Now onto the advantages of the 3DS:
1) Keeping it in the family - 999 is DS only, so for some it's weird to make that jump to Vita. For me, I felt that way too but I honestly love it on my Vita far more for the reason above.
2) 3D - I know some people love it but for me, it's just gimmick.

5.0 out of 5 stars Zero Escape... From Fun October 24, 2012
By Embryon
Platform for Display:PlayStation Vita|Edition:Standard
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
An absolutely incredible game with a gripping story, excellent dialogue and voice acting, and brain-teasing puzzles. It's the kind of narrative that keeps you up all night, eyes straining to read just one more line of text before bed.... and maybe one more after that. A perfect introduction to the Visual Novel genre for newbies and a real treat for fans of 999: Nine Hours, Nine Persons, Nine Doors. Kudos to Aksys for an excellent localization. I hope this series continues to flourish.

5.0 out of 5 stars Masterstroke in storytelling December 8, 2012
Platform for Display:PlayStation Vita| Edition:Standard|Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
To put it bluntly, the intellectualism displayed by the storytelling in Zero Escape as well as its predecessor (999) make mockery of bland incoherent plotlines in most modern video games.

Virtue's Last Reward is at its hard a visual novel with puzzle elements. The puzzles are mostly engaging, but often quite difficult. However, the developers have included an "easymode" to help less experienced players or just those who are in it for the story to get major hints to help them plod along. The story itself is closely related to 999 in some ways so either playing 999 first or reading/watching a synopsis would be a good idea. The gameplay is mainly reading and tapping on the Vita's touchscreen, which lends itself quite well to this type of adventure game. The graphics are fluid and the background score sets the mood quite well. Uncommon among most localizations, the English voice acting is excellent and rivals/surpasses the Japanese voice acting.

In my opinion, the save-anywhere and put-down/pick-up (although you really won't want to put it down for too long) nature of this game lends itself perfectly to the mobile platform. If you are looking for a gripping story with intense revelations and cerebral gameplay, you won't want to miss this game!
