UPDATE: The name for this new title will be "Gyokugen Dasshutsu Adv: Zennin Shiboudes". "Gyokugen Dasshutsu" translates to "Extreme Escape". In Japan, 999 was named Gyokugen Dasshutsu: Ku Jikan, Ku Nin, Kyu no Tobira, which translates to "Extreme Escape: 9 Hours, 9 Persons, 9 Doors". Based on this title, the game could possibly take place in the 999 universe, but will not be a sequel to the original.

ChunSoft, the Japanese developer responsible for the well received and critically acclaimed adventure-puzzle-thriller known as "999" for the Nintendo DS, has announced that they will be making a successor to that title for the PSVita and the 3DS. This newly announced game will not be a sequel, but will be developed by the same staff. It will be fully voiced and will call upon some of Japan's best voice actors for the job. 999, which stands for 9 Hours 9 Persons 9 Doors, is considered one of the best, if not THE best title on the DS by owners of the system. 

As of now, this is still a fresh announcement, so the details known are very vague. I will make sure to follow this title and post whenever new details are announced.

Little King's Story, a charming Pikmin-esque RPG adventure on the Wii, is perhaps one of the most under-appreciated games of this generation. Thankfully, it's still getting a follow-up despite the lack of love.

Andriasang reports that a Little King's Story sequel has been announced for the PlayStation Vita in the latest issue of Famitsu. The Japanese title for the new game is The King, the Demon King, and the Seven Princesses: New King Story, but it's safe to assume that will probably be altered if new publisher Konami brings it over to North America.

Actual game details from Famitsu are light right now, but so far we know that the game will have a new visual style and some sort of love/dating element. Here's hoping it makes its way to the U.S. as well.
