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?

I loved the original. Can't wait for this sequel.

999 was a fantastic game and if the same people are behind this new project, it's a no-brainer for me! Definitely worth checking out if you have a Vita or 3DS.

999 was a terrible tax plan.

A terrible tax plan, but a great game. Watching people squirm over raised taxes is great fun if you're not the one paying them ūüėČ

Hitler is a riot, I loved when they used that video to make him pissed about Final Fantasy XIII going to Xbox.

I've never played the original, but I played the demo today and don't really know what to think. The story is intriguing and the presentation is top-notch, but the puzzle section just didn't do it for me. I'll take a wait-and-see approach with this one.

Hmmmm, never even heard of the original. I'll have to check out the demo and see if I find it worth a buy.

OT: Ben are you going to review New King's Story at some point?

PlayStation Mobile hits Vita this week as well. Should be interesting, unvetted and cheap applications running within the PS Mobile framework on Vita…
