Hey! This 999: Nine Hours, Nine Persons, Nine Days Watch Could Be A Clue

By Spencer . September 15, 2010 . 7:38pm

999watchAksys is giving everyone that reserves 999: 9 Hours, 9 Persons, 9 Days at Gamestop (online only, thanks Akselziys!) a wristwatch. While this looks like an innocent timepiece, it’s actually a replica of the bracelets Junpei and the other prisoners on the ship wear.


Ah, I get it Aksys, wear the wristwatch while playing the Nintendo DS game and it’s like we’re in 999. But, seriously, I wouldn’t want to be in any game where there’s a bomb sewn inside me and halls are splattered with human remains.

    This is awesome. Well, I have no choice, but pre-order it on Gamestop.

  • Nice I already preordered it once it was available to reserve at Gamestop at least we are getting this and I still hate missing out on the Time Hollow pen that Japan got.
    Edit well online is okay also guess i need to get gift cards to get this so I dont have to use my card online lol.

  • Just to let everyone know, it’s a Gamestop online exclusive pre-order item, so you have to order it online.

    In-store and In-store pick up won’t be able to receive it.

    Just wanted to clear things up, so people aren’t confused and/or disappointed :)

      Thank you for clarification.

      • No problem :) I’m here to help!

        • actually when will it show on the gamestop website.

          • Ironically I just answered that above :) But hopefully by tomorrow.

    • Thanks for clearing that up, I’ll update the post!

      • Sure thing :)

        Also, Gamestop should have the pre-order bonus up on their page hopefully tomorrow.

    • NOOOOOooooOOo why gamestop!!! darn T_T if its not amazon, bringing a game to my country is so expensive, god, i want this wristwatch

      Sorry for this late question. I’ve only gotten around to reading this article now, but I need another clarification: Is this exclusive to Gamestop.com or is this preorder also available at Gamestop.ca? I’m thinking it’s only .com since the Canadian site doesn’t say anything about a pre-order bonus, but I’d rather make sure since if there is a preorder, I’ll buy it from Gamestop rather than Amazon.

    It’s nice seeing Aksys pushing 999, it looks like an extremely good game and having Uchikoshi as scenario writer surely helps.

    • The game is awesome! Uchikoshi did a great job!

      I’m excited for everyone to play it :)

  • masuto

    WOW! This is like the best pre-order bonus I’ve ever seen! It’s not a useless figure, or a useless poster…but a useful watch! I love you Aksys!

  • Kamion

    I can’t wait for this game… Now, how about 428?

  • M’iau M’iaut

    Now the gamestop website mentions it will be available for instore pickup/in store customers. Did something change? Want to make sure I do what I must to get this swag.
