Nintedo Life: Zero Escape: Virtue's Last Reward Review

Nintedo Life: A couple of years back, Aksys Games - in a surprise move - localised a little DS game titled 999: Nine Hours, Nine Persons, Nine Doors for America. The visual novel genre is relatively low-key in Japan, and most games don’t make the jump overseas - for obvious reasons. Pure visual novels are basically like reading a book, and even when combined with “escape the room” type puzzles, it doesn't fit into the realm of mainstream gaming. But what’s even more surprising is how well the game did commercially and critically, thanks largely to its brilliant story. (3DS, Zero Escape: Virtue's Last Reward) 10/10
