Aksys Games officially announces that the critically acclaimed hit, Nine Hours, Nine Persons, Nine Doors, for the Nintendo DS® will feature a completely redesigned box art in celebration of the newest installment of the Zero Escape series!

Ben Bateman, editor of Nine Hours, Nine Persons, Nine Doors explains:

For “Zero Escape” we wanted to create a branding umbrella that VLR [Zero Escape: Virtue’s Last Reward], 999, and any future games could rest under comfortably—a little like the “Ace Attorney” brand, if you will. To do that, we thought about what it was that defined 999 and VLR and was common to both games, and eventually settled on the character of Zero and the idea that each game involves a dangerous escape. Hence, Zero Escape, which has the nice, ominous double meaning of “You have zero chance to escape.”

First released in 2010, Nine Hours, Nine Persons, Nine Doors surprised critics and fans alike with its thrilling storyline and mind-bending puzzles. Calling it “a master class in interactive storytelling, with sensationally gripping writing,” IGN proclaimed it “Story of the Year” in 2010. Those discovering the series for the first time through the upcoming title Zero Escape: Virtue’s Last Reward can play the game that started it all, and super-fans who’ve been with us since 999 can add a fantastic new cover to their collection!

Copies of Zero Escape: Nine Hours, Nine Persons, Nine Doors with the new cover art will begin shipping in late September.

    I humbly request that you make a high quality PDF of this. Or! Maybe a program where we somehow prove that we own both games, and you send us a new slipcover.
