FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Now, you can relive the escape with your very own bracelet…

Torrance, CA (September 17 , 2010) – Aksys Games, a publisher of interactive entertainment products, is proud to announce an exclusive GameStop online pre-order bonus for Nine Hours, Nine Persons, Nine Doors, the visual novel thriller for  Nintendo DS(tm). Customers who pre-order a copy of the game online at GameStop will receive the exclusive Nine Hours, Nine Persons, Nine Doors watch. The Nine Hours, Nine Persons, Nine Doors watch is a replica of the “bracelet” worn by the nine prisoners of the Nonary Game. The watch is made of heavy-duty metal and resilient plastic tubing, with a screen that appears to be solid metal until the button is depressed, displaying the time in bright, red digits.

“You too can sport the watch that the game revolves around, just like Junpei and his companions!”, says Frank “Bo” deWindt II, Associate Producer, Aksys Games.

Nine Hours, Nine Persons, Nine Doors will be released on November 16, 2010 for Nintendo DS.

About Nine Hours, Nine Persons, Nine Doors

Junpei, a normal college student, suddenly finds himself involved in a deadly conspiracy he could never have imagined.

He wakes aboard an old cruise liner. Dazed and confused, he stumbles around the room he finds himself in, trying desperately to remember how he got there. The first thing he notices is a number, scrawled across the door… A bright red number 5.

As Junpei’s memory returns, his mind is filled with the image of a mysterious figure in a gas mask, and their haunting words: “You are going to participate in a game. The Nonary Game. It is a game…where you will put your life on the line.”

“We’ve decided to call 999 an ‘Adventure’ game,” says Ben Bateman, Localization Editor, Aksys Games, “but I don’t really feel that’s entirely accurate. 999 is a game that simulates life, or at least it would if your life was about being trapped on a sinking ship and forced to complete a series of incomprehensible puzzles before your practically inevitable death. It is about relationships, and how they will ultimately kill you. There is also some blood, and an ax, so if you’ve always wanted some blood and an ax in your life, there you go. But what really brings 999 to life are the people who inhabit it. You will learn to care for them; to feel as though you are there and they are your friends, and then they will die because you made the wrong choices. Just like in real life.”

Key Features

  • Nine Hours

    You have only 9 hours before Junpei and his 8 fellow abductees drown. Numerology, music composition and logic puzzles are just a few of the 32+ obstacles that stand in the way of their freedom. You’ll have to use everything in your environment to get out!

  • Nine Persons

    Solve the mysteries that cloud your companions’ pasts, and unveil a disturbing future. Help everyone escape, but beware! A wrong decision or a careless mistake might put their lives in jeopardy. Experience 6 endings that are determined by the way you play!

  • Nine Doors

    Each hostage is cursed with a digital watch that displays their unique number. These numbers are keys to unlocking the 9 doors. Explore your surroundings for clues to unlock the next door by picking up and examining objects you find in each room. Create new tools by combining them to get out of dangerous situations and solve deadly puzzles.

      I’ve never seen a watch as a pre-order bonus before! That’s a rather cool idea! Do want!

      Rogue Ninja, apparently you haven’t played Growlanser Generations. But a watch is a cool preorder bonus, I need to replace mine anyway.

      I’m confused with the pre order watch bonus. Aksys games said its only for those who order pre order it online at gamestop, but gamestop’s website says its for both online AND in stores.
      Did gamestop make a mistake?

      Dude, I love this. But man, either my wrist is fat, or… yeah, it probably is fat. -_-;; Probably won’t fit me, but I’ll still buy the preorder.

      @dhkfyf: I believe GameStop is still deciding on it being for both, but originally it was a GameStop online exclusive only.

      We’ll keep everyone posted once we know more :)
