Zero Escape: Virtue’s Last Reward Getting Another Batch Of Pre-Order Watches

By Ishaan . September 24, 2012 . 11:35am

Last week, Aksys announced a pre-order bonus for Zero Escape: Virtue’s Last Reward in the form of an actual watch-cum-bracelet based on the one featured in the game. Unfortunately, the bonus, limited to Amazon pre-orders, quickly sold out soon after it was announced.


This morning, Aksys announced that another batch of the “inoculation device” watches will be available alongside pre-orders starting September 28th.


Additionally, if you’ve already pre-ordered, here are a couple of frequently asked questions they answered on their blog:


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.


Zero Escape: Virtue’s Last Reward will be released for the Nintendo 3DS and PlayStation Vita this October in North America.

    So, I take it that preorders are healthy, then? It’d be neat if Rising Star did something like this for the European release, but I’m just glad we’re getting it.

       It’s September 24th.

    I hope these watches have a more user-friendly design. As much as I dig the 999 watch, the latch is a pain to close and it weighed about 2 pounds.

  • Watch cum design? The hell?

  • nirvana123

    I hope this game does well

  • Dammit 4 days to wait to preoder again…

  • Budgiecat

    I have no $. Ishaan help me

  • Rishtopher

    Can anyone tell me if the preorder was available on specifically? It was sold out before I knew it. If it’s only available through the American site, then I’m kind of SOL.

  • Watahashi

    Don’t think Canada will get this. ;_;

  • Thanks for the info, Siliconera! I just cancelled my order that I placed on the 18th.

  • Is there a certain time on that date? or is it just immediate on tht date? either way I’m not sleeping on the 27th.

  • WingsOfEternity

    It was pretty damn obvious that they had a bad estimation of the 999 fanbase if the watches ran out within hours. I was one of the people that missed out, I’ll definitely get it now :D

  • Jesse

    Question: I pleaced the order on the 17th, as soon as i saw on siliconera. How can i tell if i order the standerd version or the one with the watch.

    • Niermyico

       I want to know this as well. When I preordered it on the 17th the only option I saw by default was the “Standard.”

      • Jesse

        Yeah, I just checked my order it says standard order, not the pre-order bonus bundle. I just canceled my order.

  • Margaret Chan

    According to statements I’ve read, you should check your confirmation on Amazon and if it says “with pre-order bonus item”. Otherwise, contact Amazon Customer Service. They were able to tell me if I was eligible or not.

  • Bummer, I totally cancelled my pre-order I made like 3 months ago.

    • キロ

      Yeah… XD a friend of mine had one on 06 April, and then conveniently cancelled and re-ordered on the 18 September…XD
