    I know very little about this game other than it apparently has a great narrative. I just ordered it from Amazon and I’m looking forward to playing it.

      It shouldn’t disappoint. 999 is one of my all time fav DS game. The story is crazy, all the charas are great and well written. The art is good, and the puzzles are really fun but not bang your head on the wall screaming hard. They atcually involve real logic and you can figure it out. I never once needed a guide. It’s a very good game. You’ll love it.

  • I already stabbed someone to get it :(

    And rofl the meat xD

    • EvilAkito

      I pre-ordered the game (with the fancy wrist-watch and everything), but then somebody stabbed me and took my copy.

  • … If growing a pair cat ears is a minor side effect, I would totally play more games with words. :D

  • Mother banana…I love you Ben and I love 999 otherwise known as Nine Hours Nine Persons Nine Doors~ <3

    • I love you too Raioh, whoever you are.

      • He has leg fetish like me, that’s all you need to know

  • Zero_Destiny

    Twelve Million Percent XD Man I feel more engaged now than when I slipped a ring on that she-devil!!! Of course she had to go bye-bye June is all I need. ^_^

  • joesz

    You read all that in the same pages…what?

  • PrinceHeir

    i heard many great things about this game :D

    i just wanna ask(again) any other games like this?

    people say games like Layton, Phoenix Wright, Ghost Trick, Jake Hunter and Last Window,

    btw where the hell is Silver Case Remake? i also want to add Snatcher and Policenauts as potential 3DS games. i mean they fit perfectly on handheld.

    get to work konami.

    • Pro_from_Dover

      Yeah! Where is the Silver Case Remake?
      Loved Snatcher back on the Sega CD! And Jake Hunter, Ghost Trick, and Phoenix Wright are great games too! Still want to play the Prof. Layton series…

      • PrinceHeir

        hell yeah :P

        honestly this type of games along with platformers and JRPG’s are what’s missing this gen.

  • Looking quite dandy there Ben~! Love your cat and your tweets!

    Congrats to 999 as well!

    • Joanna

      Agreed. Ben has awesome tweets~

      Aksys is quickly becoming my favourite localization company. :)
      Right now I would say there is a three way tie for first place between Aksys, Atlus, and XSEED. All three have done some quality work these past two years and released some of my favourite games. :)

      I hope 999 sold well enough because I want that sequel! xD

      • I love those three companies as well :D I feel like they really listen to their fans and release things I want to play, despite being a niche game! I always try to buy their release when I can! (despite my huge backlog of games orz)

  • Darkrise

    Sadly, I haven’t seen this game at all in the stores that I know since the 3 week the game was launched. Just when I was planning to let go of $35, it decides to disappear…. T.T

  • Pichi

    That was great! On my to get list, ASAP!
