I was combing through the 3ds eshop today and saw that this game is now available for digital download. Game is only $24.99 and I still have my 30 dollars from the nintendo SMTIV + Fire Emblem deal so I'm thinking of taking the plunge. My question is do I need to play 999 in order to have any understanding of what's happening in this game or can I play Virtue's Last Reward by itself?
Do I need to play 999 to understand this game?
No, I got two one of 999s endings and i hated the way it presented its dialog.
Virtues last reward was more enjoyable, I found it occupied my interest more. And it was also so much easyer to play the other endings. I also have a intrest in the mechanics used in the story of VLR ( trying to advoid spoilers by not spelling them out ).
