For those of you not in the loop, those first two intense, story-driven puzzlers would be Nine Hours, Nine Persons, Nine Doors (999) and Virtue's Last Reward (VLR). Even though VLR is already available for the platform, PS Vita owners will finally be able to get their hands on 999, though not separately. Including the 3rd Zero Escape title, Zero Time Dilemma, would be been awesome of course, but maybe that'll happen sometime in the future as a complete bundle of some sort.
The games will be visually remastered and feature dual audio, and will be available at retail and digitally in spring of next year.
Check out some screens and read on for the announcement.
