Anime Promo Video

#1 Edited by FluxWaveZ (19304 posts) -

This is a promotional video for the promotional anime to the 999 sequel I think it looks interesting, mainly because I'm interested in the actual game. I like the concept of story based games, Japanese games at least, getting anime versions. I'm not sure if this will serve as a set-up to the initial events of the game or if the anime will just be events taken from the game, but I'll be seeing it regardless.

Full promo video:

@FluxWaveZ: This is going to be the opening video for the game.

I hate the fact that they picked Gonzo to do the anime.

Well that was crazy, I'm interested in the game now though, maybe I'll pick up the first one

@Bocam: Well, seeing what this actually is I don't think it would have been too wise for them to invest in a better animation studio.

Also anyone see clover, Sanata and Junpei resemblances

999 is one of the best DS games, if you have one play it now

@FluxWaveZ: I just wish SHAFT was doing it.

Also Zero is now a bunny and voiced by the actress who voiced the demon-cat thing from Inu-yasha

It'd be hard not to see those resemblances.The Clover-looking girl even has a tattoo (or something) of a pink clover on her cheek and the Egyptian lady's probably Alice referred to near the end of 999. It's most likely related to the plot in a significant way.

Is 999 worth finishing? I played till I reached the elevator scene, while I was in the hospital then I stopped. I don't remember anything.

@Bocam: how many endings did you get, i personally thinks its one of the better told stories in a game. The new game plus is done really well.

Alice

@Bocam: It's unique in that all of the game's multiple endings serve an overarching narrative purpose and are actually relevant to how the game plays out. All of the multiple endings are needed in order to access the one true ending that wraps each one of them together. 
 
@slightconfuse: Wow, and I uploaded that image too. I blame sleep deprivation.

@slightconfuse: I don't remember. I only remember this

@Bocam: if i remember correctly there is a door down there(2?) and then you have to choose between doors 2,6,1 i believe . after that you will find door 9 and depending on your choice you will get an ending. in order to get the true ending you need to get the "safe ending "first

I really enjoyed 999 and hope Aksys brings this over to the US some day.

It's been released and it's 12 minutes:

Still only in Japanese, though.

Funny how the promo doesn't actually work at all in terms of plot in relation to the game.
