Still no word on whether the pants-tightening 999 sequel, Good People Die, will be hitting our shores this year, but there's no reason why we can't get ourselves just a leeeetle bit excited.
Above is what appears to be the game's opening cutscenes, featuring full-blown animation care of Gonzo (Hellsing, Afro Samurai). Since I'm assuming most of us aren't fluent in "Nihongo," a fan has graciously provided a serviceable, if not 100% accurate, translation. Make sure the annotations are on, then enjoy the tale of a boy, a girl, a giant robot man, and an evil rabbit AI.
After the jump, catch a clip detailing the rules of the Nonary Game: Ambidex Edition. Make sure subtitles (not annotations) are on for that one.
