Good People Die Becomes Zero Escape: Virtue’s Last Reward

Good People Die Becomes Zero Escape: Virtue’s Last Reward

A few days ago, Nintendo Power revealed that Chunsoft’s sequel to 999, translated as Good People Die, would be heading to North America. Last night, the announcement was made official, with the English title revealed as Zero Escape: Virtue’s Last Reward.

Part of the reason for the title change is to make it part of a “Zero Escape” series, which includes 999.

The game will have voice-acted “novel” sections and will feature polygonal 3D characters (instead of 2D art, as in the previous game). The game will also support both English and Japanese for the dialog, although it isn’t clear if the voicetrack will be available in both languages, or if this applies to the written dialog only.

It will be available for both 3DS and Vita, with Sony’s version available both at retail and digitally.

While I’m excited we’re getting the sequel (especially since it’ll be available on the Vita), I’m a little disappointed with the name. Zero Escape just seems so, “meh.” What do you think?
