INOCULATION PROGRAM EXTENDED: Officials Will Produce Another Limited Batch

“VLR” infection spreads quickly, prompting officials to produce more inoculation devices

 

IDO Quarantine Zone Tau, Los Angeles, CA — Despite the best efforts of our analysts and scientists to track and contain the infection known as “VLR,” the virus has spread quicker than anticipated.  Cases have been reported throughout the continental United States, and government officials have called this “an epidemic of mass proportions that could reach ‘bubonic plague’ levels.”

Currently, supplies from the initial opt-in inoculation program have been completely depleted.  We have determined that we will be able to produce another very limited supply of inoculation devices which will be made available sometime Friday, September 28, 2012.  Due to the high demand for these devices, we must warn all citizens to avoid auction sites or black market operators, so as to ensure effective treatment against “VLR.”  We also ask that those seeking these devices review the following:

Pre-order bonuses will be given on a first-come, first-serve basis.

If you ordered a pre-order bundle prior to the “first wave”:

Those who have pre-ordered prior to “first wave” of pre-order bonuses will still receive the bundle. This means that if you placed your pre-order prior to September 17th, 2012, you will receive the watch. Do not cancel and re-order.

For those who pre-ordered a “standard edition” after the “first wave” sold out:

This pre-order bonus offer is not retroactive.  Purchasers must cancel their “standard edition” order and pre-order the “pre-order bonus bundle” when it becomes available on September 28, 2012.

*For further inquiries, please refer to Amazon.com or speak with an Amazon representative.

    THANK YOU SO MUCH,
    Amazon failed to tell me when orders for Virtue’s Last Reward on 3DS were open… untill about 4 days after it had sold out.
    After playing 999 and falling in love with it I decided I HAD to get Virtue’s Last Reward, and getting another stab at that watch… blissful.

    Thank you for putting it back up. Still a pretty limited window of time to get that preorder in (and I’ll have to cancel one of my copies that I preordered from Gamestop), but hopefully I can actually catch it this time.
    At least we have a specified date for when it’ll happen.

    This is great that you are doing this! I luckily managed to get my pre order watch in the first wave and now more people can get one too! They sold out really fast, what in a day or so?

    Thank you so much! I was on Amazon the day of the first wave(the only way I found out about it), but the 3DS versions’ page was broken and I didn’t realize it was a case that they ran out of copies or I would have preoredered the Vita version… Feel so dumb.
    At least I get a second chance now!

    Hey, I talked to Amazon about this and they don’t seem to know anything about this yet. It will still be on Amazon right? I mean I know it says here, but I would like to be sure.

  12.  russell

    HeartsAlchemy – Yes, it is a go. Amazon is working with us on this.

    9.24.12 at 9:10 pm

    If I ordered on September 17th and my amazon email confirmation says it comes with the Pre-order bonus am Igood or should I reorder on Friday?

    Looks like I will camp out to make sure I get it this time. Will deal with region locking later.

    9.25.12 at 6:59 am

    I ordered mine on the 18th. I wasn’t sure so I had a chat with Amazon customer-service to make sure I was part of the “first-wave.” They said I was but I’m still uncertain due to it being ordered on the 18th, and really doubt that the customer service rep knows what’s going on with it. But I’m still really wary about cancelling and re-ordering on the 28th…

    This sucks. =(

  17.  russell
    9.25.12 at 8:14 am

    RockmanTrigger – if you’re confirmation says you will receive the pre-order bonus, get ready to wear the watch!

    ragingbuttpirate – According to Amazon, pre-orders after the 17th will not receive a watch. Our support staff may be able to help you further. Could you email support(at)aksysgames(dot)com and inquire about this? Thank you!

    9.25.12 at 12:24 pm

    I ordered mine on the 18th too, but it still says I have the pre order bonus item. I also emailed support@aksysgames.com and they sent amazon my order number and stuff. I am kinda confused since Russell said that orders after the 17th won’t receive the watch.

  20.  UnLucky
    9.25.12 at 2:06 pm

    I ordered on the 17th and this was what they said:

    “I’ve checked your order and see that the item that you’ve pre-ordered had a pre-order bonus which was not applied to your order.”

    I guess that means I missed out? I’ll try again Friday.

  21.  MooRawrOink
    9.25.12 at 8:28 pm

    Will we know ahead of time what part of the day the bonuses will be available? I really don’t want to miss out AGAIN.

    I just wanted to come back and commend you all for taking the comments of the fans seriously. While I would rather keep my pre-order at Gamestop, if it makes the difference between getting the watch or not, I will happily pre-order via Amazon.

    Also, a thank you for a bit more of a warning this time. I both wish and don’t (for my own selfish sake) you would make the information on these pre-orders a bit more mainstream in the future.

    Again, thank you for taking the comments of the fans to heart and working to make as many of us as possible happy.

    Quick question.

    My order for the 3DS “Virtue’s Last Reward (with Pre order bonus item)” says on the order review page: “We’ll notify you via e-mail when we have an estimated delivery date.” Just wondering, is it backordered or something even though I got in before it was removed from the website?

  26.  redhood56
    9.26.12 at 3:16 pm

    @HurpDurp I am pretty sure, that it will just tell you when the game ships.

  27.  HurpDurp
    9.26.12 at 9:47 pm

    @redhood56: Well yeah, but I also have the Vita version preordered (I’m getting both) and that still lists the normal date for when it will be shipped (Friday October 26, 2012). So I was just wondering if the 3DS version was backordered or something.

  28.  porkiewpyne
    9.27.12 at 2:53 am

    @redhood56: Wow I love them premiums but those prices are insane. How I wish sometimes these people won’t hog them in order to resell them at superinflated prices :(

  29.  Texanon
    9.27.12 at 8:28 pm

    I tried to contact them about my order and they said ” I’ve checked into the promotional offer on the manufacturer’s website. While Amazon.com is an authorized dealer of item we are not a participating dealer for this particular promotion.”

    I don’t know what to do now.

  30.  porkiewpyne
    9.27.12 at 11:00 pm

    @Texanon: That can’t be right? If anything, Amazon.com has to know since it is the ONLY one with the promo :(

    Tex: I got the same reply when my order was placed early on the 17th on Amazon. But I was told to cancel my order, so I did, and now I’m still sitting here at my computer waiting for Amazon to restock the bonus pre order addition. :(

    I just hope most of the watches actually go to fans who really want it rather than someone just wants one to flip on eBay for a quick buck.

    9.28.12 at 5:19 am

    Hey does anyone know if the second batch of watches came out yet, I ended up blacking out last night and I’m not sure if they already came out and were sold out by 8AM EST.

  36.  bcl
    9.28.12 at 5:42 am

    @slumlord52 Been up all night; no sign of watches as far as I can tell. I had a feeling I’d be staying up for no reason. My guess is that they’ll be released midday or evening.

  37.  porkiewpyne
    9.28.12 at 5:46 am

    @slumlord52: Stayed up all night as well so unless it was sold out in 15 minutes, I can safely say that Amazon.com hasn’t released em yet.

    @Evil_Pun: I feel the same way too. All the best :)

  38.  slumlord52
    9.28.12 at 5:50 am

    @porkiewpyne and @bcl: Thank you both very much, I hope it gets out soon lol.

    I have the watch from the first game, I’m a very dedicated fan of the series and I’ll probably end up getting the copy of 999 with the alternate box art too :D

    Yeah I did get it from that page and all and I selected pre order bonus and that does show up in my order. I’m just worried cause it says “ships in 2 to 3 weeks” and it doesn’t say “pre-order add to cart” but instead just “add to cart”.

    Here’s hoping it worked!

  80.  Akiho
    9.28.12 at 8:37 am

    I suppose about 10 bucks – But this we could discuss when you got the package :) (I would pay the game first, and then in the second row the shipping costs)

  81.  ThoughtEntity
    9.28.12 at 8:37 am

    No, it won’t. For whatever reason, Canada is an invalid place to ship to from Amazon.com and Amazon.ca doesn’t have the preorder bonus available. I am extremely disappointed at this planning on Aksys’s part

  82.  Hayabusa85
    9.28.12 at 8:38 am

    The 3DS Pre-Order bonus listing seems like it is totally messed up. Lists the release date as September 1st and it is the only version that doesn’t ship outside the US. The standard 3DS, standard Vita and pre-order Vita all show shipping outside the US. So hoping Amazon have not messed up with the Vita pre-order version saying it can be shipped to Canada and then cancel the pre-order when these are gone.

    typically ordering items from an Amazon out of your country you’re only allowed to order books, CDs and DVDs, content pending. That does unfortunately mean games are excluded from the list. I’m sorry foreign friends I think it’s limit one per order but I think one could order both vita and 3DS under the limit 1 so hopefully someone getting a Vita version sees your plea and helps you, I would but I’m 3Ds as well.

  88.  ranran

    @Suiren – yes, I got ThoughtEntity her copy. I can help one more person, but then I start to run out of addresses.

    And yes, there ARE scammers out there – be careful guys.

    I am not asking for payment until I physically receive the game WITH the watch.

    Watch out guys, the page says it has sold out of pre-order edition but hasn’t stopped selling them. Feel free to tell me if I’m wrong.

    Is the 3DS version actually sold out ALREADY???

    @sleepynobowling What you mean by color? There are random color watches O.O??? if there is…*drools*… I hope there is green!!!

  116.  Evil_Pun
    9.28.12 at 9:30 am

    Suiren there’s Red, Blue and yes Green

  117.  golfdude
    9.28.12 at 9:31 am

    what gives? why is the 3ds listing not letting preorders on it, only vita again…

  118.  Taochan
    9.28.12 at 9:33 am

    Also guys, the watch DOES SHIP TO CANADA FROM AMAZON.COM.

    I’m from Canada and I had no problem with getting it shipped here, you just have to pay a fee of about 5 dollars extra.

  119.  ranran
    9.28.12 at 9:33 am

    @golfdude The 3DS pre-order bonus is already sold out

  120.  ThoughtEntity
    9.28.12 at 9:35 am

    @Taochan the problem was with the 3DS pre-order listing. I wouldn’t ship to Canada. All the other listings would. Completely stupid really.

  121.  sleepynobowling
    9.28.12 at 9:35 am

    it should be 1st come first serve regardless of system.. it shouldnt be divied up by system.. its clear more ppl want the 3ds one thatn the vita one.. just move the watches over to the 3ds.. it even let my through too, only to bs me saying it was sold out when i hit order…

  126.  Taochan
    9.28.12 at 9:38 am

    @ ThoughtEntity: Seriously??? I have a 3DS and no Vita so I only pre-ordered the Vita version for the watch. But I guess it works out that I missed the 3DS pre-order again since it won’t even ship here.

    amazon pretty much derped VLR from the beginning like when they broke the 3DS order page for a few days and such

  134.  Taochan
    9.28.12 at 9:55 am

    You can still get them for the Vita, BlackAngel. :(

    x.x I don’t have the 3DS.. can’t exchange code yet =(… still got the game to give me that extra push XD @sleepynobowling ^.^ if you get animal crossing add me!

  136.  Evil_Pun
    9.28.12 at 9:59 am

    @BlackAngel for 3DS the watches only lasted just over an hour as well all I can suggest is get a vita and try to trade the actual game at a store for a 3DS version or find someone in the reverse senerio.

  137.  sleepynobowling
    9.28.12 at 9:59 am

    Maybe the watches are included in the actual packaging not bundled with it.

    I’d be down for that. I would gladly participate in a Nonary game XD

  143.  ladykibble
    9.28.12 at 10:18 am

    I don’t want to play a real Nonary game! There’s crazy people with axes in those things.

    And I’m afraid of ladders…(true story)

  144.  ThoughtEntity
    9.28.12 at 10:21 am

    lol the axe ending was the funniest bad ending. the funny part being that I actually thought for a moment that she wasn’t going to kill me XD

  145.  Suiren
    9.28.12 at 10:24 am

    @.@ the possibility… I wish I found out about you guys when I got 999 <.< it was harsh…because I didn't know anyone was playing it and I was dying to discuss it with anyone… about the story and frustration that I went through x3 when I got my first bad ending lol…

  146.  ThoughtEntity
    9.28.12 at 10:28 am

    I got the endings in this order:
    Knife > Submarine > Axe > Coffin > Safe > True
    The story had a nice flow in this order, though I’m not sure if it would be disjointed in other orders. I ended up getting spoilers though so I knew who zero was the whole time *sadface*

  147.  sleepynobowling
    9.28.12 at 10:29 am

    I didn’t get around to playing it until last weekend and I played it back to back about 8 times because I messed up and got the same ending a few times :P So I haven’t been a fan since the beginning, but my timing sure was good with the sequel coming out. Same thing happened with Phoenix Wright and Hotel Dusk XD I played them late, so as soon as I finished them the sequels came out!

  148.  sleepynobowling
    9.28.12 at 10:29 am

    That’s the same order I got too ^_^

  149.  Evil_Pun
    9.28.12 at 10:32 am

    I got Axe, Safe, Coffin/True, Knife, then Submarine in that order.

  150.  Taochan
    9.28.12 at 10:33 am

    Ugh, the Knife ending was the first one I got. I was so distraught that I had died. THEN I got the Sub ending which was even more depressing.

  151.  sleepynobowling
    9.28.12 at 10:35 am

    I got knife, Submarine, Safe, Coffin/true, and Axe

    The Submarine one got to me… x.x got me depressed 3 days before I pick up the game again to play… it was during x-mas that I played this game… so much memories ^.^

    the most annoying puzzle gotta be the brain puzzle for Lotus… took me 3 hours the 1st time… x.x… that was soooo confusing … gave me such a headache… <.<

  155.  Taochan
    9.28.12 at 10:46 am

    Oh, the puzzle with Lotus was pretty difficult!

    I remember getting to the final puzzle, turning over my DS and really confusing my friend who was in the same room.

  161.  Taochan

    @Scon: A lot of people stayed up all night waiting for the pre-order bonuses to be back on the site.

  162.  Evil_Pun
    9.28.12 at 10:58 am

    my rough estimate is it went on sale around 9:10 PST and sold out about 10:30 PST

  163.  Scon
    9.28.12 at 10:58 am

    @Taochan: count me as one of them… *sigh* =(

  164.  BlackAngel
    9.28.12 at 10:59 am

    I’d rather not take the chance, I don’t have that much money to spend and I don’t think I’d be able to somehow trade it… I just really hope they move the PS Vita watches to the 3DS..unless someone here would like the Vita version and has the 3DS?

  165.  BlackAngel
    9.28.12 at 11:08 am

    and PS Vita is now sold out ^.^ too late now

  166.  Scon
    9.28.12 at 11:12 am

    Yep… F5′d aaaaand Vita pre-order bonuses are gone too…

    I’m hear murmers from people that they’re going to release watches in their store like they did with 999, but I highly doubt that because I think the original 999 watches were over printed and not nearly as many people preordered it as it was more of a sleeper hit. That’s just what I think but then there is the question what about the watches that end up getting abandoned by someone having to cancel their order for one reason or another. In that case i would assume a few would find their way into the Aksys store but again it’s just speculation.

  169.  sleepynobowling
    9.28.12 at 11:21 am

    I wonder how many there were

  170.  Evil_Pun

    [mod comment] Those of you in this news post who are just conversing: We’re glad you’re excited for VLR, but could you kindly move your conversation to the forums? You can start a thread there and may even find more people to talk to! It’s also a much more comfortable place to easily see replies. Try to keep comments here related to the post. Much appreciated!

    I stayed up all night to try and catch the watch, but then I had to go to school. Luckily I checked my phone MINUETS before class started and got one of the vita versions pre-ordered. I don’t have a vita, but I guess I don’t mind getting two copies of the game if one has a watch with it! thanks Aksys for the second wave!!! :D

    “Those who have pre-ordered prior to “first wave” of pre-order bonuses will still receive the bundle. This means that if you placed your pre-order prior to September 17th, 2012, you will receive the watch. Do not cancel and re-order.”

    I pre-ordered the game on July 5, 2012 from Amazon.com. I just received an e-mail telling me I would no longer be getting the bonus. I was lied to and am very unhappy.

  175.  demonicloud

    Same as Niction. Amazon says I’m getting the standard version. I had no idea there were “waves.” oh well it’s just a watch.
