Here's an interesting new title for all you handheld fans seeking a slightly different portable experience.
As revealed at the PlayStation Blog , it's Zero Escape: Virtue's Last Reward , which is the sequel to the critically acclaimed Zero Escape: Nine Hours, Nine Persons, Nine Doors .
Basically, it's a "visual novel-style game" with both puzzles and traps, which college student Sigma, a mysterious young woman named Phi, and seven other characters must avoid. All are forced to participate in a weird game known as Nonary Game: Ambidex Edition, which is potentially deadly; the unwilling contestants must escape and learn why they were forced to play in the first place. It sounds like a truly innovative adventure and one well worth trying.
But if you're not completely convinced, you can always try out the demo, which is now available on the PlayStation Store. It'll let you sample the Novel sections of the game and introduce you to a few characters, and you can also try an Escape section, too. Gotta love some ambitious originality here and there, right?
